The Covent Garden Murder

Mike Hollow / Simon Mattacks
December 1940. Christmas is coming but the season of goodwill is overshadowed by the death and destruction of the Blitz. In London's Covent Garden where the glamour of theatreland rubs shoulders with the bustle of the capital's biggest fruit and vegetable market the war has closed the theatres and ruined the market trade. When a daylight air raid hits the Prince Albert Theatre in Drury Lane rescuers find a man dying in the wreckage. But it wasn't the bomb that's ending his life - he's been stabbed and with his dying breath he whispers what sounds like a fragmented confession. As Detective Inspector John Jago begins to investigate there's an underlying question he must grapple with: was the murdered man himself a killer?
