The inspiration for this book is the little known case of the 'Blackout Ripper'. Gordon Cummins was a 28 year old airman who was 'good looking, good company and good fun'. He was also a serial killer who murdered four women in the West End of London during the war. As an airman, Cummins was admired and rewarded for killing, but the qualities that lent him his skill in the skies were the same ones, in twisted form, that led him to strangle and mutilate women. This is a noir novel in the vein of Graham Greene, which looks at how the psychological pressure of war may lead people to lose their moral compass. But most importantly this is a gripping story of several lives the victims and the killer. No one is better at getting inside characters and creating bone chilling atmosphere than Laura Wilson, and here she shows that her place is right at the pinnacle of crime fiction.
