Home Front Detective #1: A Bespoke Murder
1915: As zeppelin bombs fall on London and the Lusitania is sunk, anti-German hysteria reaches fever pitch, and attacks on German immigrants surge. Jacob Stein's bespoke tailoring business comes under brutal attack, leaving his safe ransacked, his daughter Ruth raped and traumatized, and Jacob dead. Inspector Harvey Marmion is detailed to the case and faces an uphill struggle to track down the perpetrators, even up to the chaos of the Front Line. But was the murder as opportunistic as it first appears, or did someone with a deadly grudge plan the attack?
