About this book
Stylish post-war suspense novel set in bomb-ravaged London. Both a high-class thriller and a wonderful evocation of the times. Wilson is a leading cultural critic, and regularly appears on Radio 4. '...evokes louche, bohemian NW3 with skill and relish' John O'Connell, "Guardian"
London in the aftermath of WW2 is a beaten down, hungry place, so it's no wonder that Regine Milner's Sunday house parties are so popular. Everyone comes to Reggie's on a Sunday: ballet dancers and cabinet ministers, alongside homosexuals like Freddie. And when Freddie turns up dead on the Heath one Sunday night there is no shortage of suspects.
