A novel by

 
 
The chilling new World War Two crime mystery by the award-winning author Barbara Nadel. London, 1940: Francis Hancock finds the brutally murdered, partially eviscerated body of a woman in a derelict house in Plaistow. Francis' sister, Nancy, knew the victim. Then, shockingly, two more murders follow; again, the victims are female, and also eviscerated. Rumours start to spread through the East End about a modern day Jack the Ripper. When a fourth woman is murdered, Nancy finally admits that she knew all of the victims. They were all White Feather Girls during the First World War; women who spent their time giving any man out of uniform a white feather as a sign of cowardice. Francis is appalled to discover she was involved in such a thing. But, now terrified that his sister might also be murdered, he sets out to find the killer and discovers a trail of murderous resentment that go back decades!
