Blackout By Simon Scarrow

December 1939, Germany is in the grip of a freezing cold winter, the country is at war and the imposed blackout dampens the spirit of everyone's Christmas celebrations.

Under the cover of darkness, rape and murder are committed and criminal investigator Horst Schenke is ordered to solve the case quickly by the powerful and ruthless SS Oberfuhrer Muller.

The investigation takes him and his team perilously close to the heart of the Nazi party and Horst quickly realises that the politics within can be as deadly as a killer!

"This is an old-fashioned murder mystery with a fantastic twist. Enjoy." - Judy Finnigan
