Publisher's Summary

Richard Temperley arrives at Euston station early on a fogbound London morning. He takes refuge in a nearby hotel, along with a disagreeable fellow passenger who had snored his way through the train journey. But within minutes the other man has snored for the last time - he has been shot dead while sleeping in an armchair. 

When the police arrive, Detective Inspector James discovers a token at the crime scene: 'a small piece of enamelled metal. Its colour was crimson, and it was in the shape of the letter Z'. Temperley sets off in pursuit of a mysterious woman from the hotel and finds himself embroiled in a cross-country chase on the tail of a sinister serial killer.

It was ok but...

Good overall plot and pace, and (as might be expected) it evokes a sencese of the age. but the main character was such a ****. It worked on the basis that if a chap sees a gal who looks in trouble, well that chap is entitled to do whatever he jolly well pleases. Laws, police routine, common sense are as nothing.
