The Wild Card

(2000)
A novel by

 
London. October, 1944. In the dying days of World War Two, Hitler's 'revenge weapon' the V2 - an unnerving weapon that comes without sound or warning, still rains upon the city.

The room darkens. The clock ticks on.
The explosion, when it comes, fractures the deathly quiet, ripping the heart from the building and shattering the gas main beneath the pavement of the street outside. In a matter of seconds the destruction is complete: an elegant terrace of handsome houses that has stood for the best part of a hundred years is a smoking heap of dusty rubble and splintered timbers. There is a moment of shocked stillness, broken only by the dangerous hiss of gas and the trickling tumble of broken masonry. Then there comes the roar of flames and someone begins to scream.
Amazingly, there are survivors. But others have not been so lucky. Eight shattered bodies are eventually recovered from the shambles of the wrecked buildings. Seven had been killed by the blast. Not surprisingly under the circumstances, there was little left to indicate that the eighth had not.
