On duty during London’s Blitz . . .
As death and destruction fall from the skies day after day in the London Blitz, Australian ambulance driver, Lily Brennan, confronts the horror with bravery, intelligence, common sense and humour.
Lily begins to suspect that someone at her Ambulance Station may be giving assistance to the enemy by disclosing secret information. Then a Jewish ambulance attendant, David Levy, disappears in suspicious circumstances. Helped by David’s school friend, a mysterious and attractive RAF pilot, Lily has to draw on all of her resources to find David but also negotiate the dangers that come from falling in love in a country far from home and in a time of war.

DEATH OF AN OLD GIT Andrea Frazer
In the village of Castle Farthing a mean-spirited, spiteful, curmudgeonly old man is found drugged and strangled in his cottage, with no obvious clues to the perpetrator of the crime. DI Falconer and Acting DS Carmichael are summoned from the police headquarters in the nearby town of Market Darley and begin to uncover a web of grudges against the old man. As the heat of July continues relentlessly, tempers flare, disturbing the usual rural calm of the village, and the normally imperturbable Harry Falconer. Faced with a crime with no obvious prime suspect, he feels that he is gradually losing his grip on the case as the body count rises . . .

A DISTANT BANNER Roy Lewis
Henry Jones ought to have been good for something more than working as a scaffolder on a building site. He had a degree, the offer of a job, a girl-friend only too eager to settle down to Welsh respectability. Yet instead, he worked with O’Hara, violent and drunken; Davies, a drifter; Thomas, untrustworthy; Tommy Williams, universally disliked. All of them were in a state of running warfare with the foreman, a tough, hardworking Tynesider. When one of them is murdered, it is discovered that there has been considerable organized pilfering from the site. Henry is coerced by Inspector Morgan into unofficially working for the police.
