Publisher's Summary

Soho during the blackouts of the Second World War. When a piercing scream rends the air and a bloodied knife is found, Detective Inspector MacCarthy is soon on the scene.

He must move through the dark, seedy Soho underworld - peopled by Italian gangsters, cross-dressing German spies and glamorous Austrian aristocrats - as he attempts to unravel the connection between the mysterious Madame Rohner and the theft of secret antiaircraft defence plans.

Excellent story but not a whodunnit

I really enjoyed this book, even though it was more of a thriller than a golden age mystery. Gordon Griffin is, as always, excellent. Recommended.

Good Story of the golden age.

Great story, a little to much of over thinking the clues, but otherwise a story with lots of twists and action. Read by one of the best on Audible

meticulously and humourously written

the story is told with a meticulous sense of detail, but that doesn't cause the pace to drag.
there is also a sense that the author had a sense of the somewhat ridiculous nature of the story and enjoyed telling it.

Moderately shallow characters

A well narrated piece that is gripping if a little shallow in both character and storyline

Any comparison to Bulldog Drummond is pretty thin

The setting and the people of Soho at the start of WW2 are great and a real treat for those who know and love London. The story is okay, not as exciting as Bulldog Drummond or the Saint by any stretch though. I think the real issue is that while the reader isn't bad, he's remarkably dull. My ears just tune him out so I had to keep going back and relistening to parts I missed. I noticed the same on others in this series of books he's read but thought it was the plots that weren't gripping those cases. This should have been a fun listen, but turned out to be rather tedious
