It's the summer of 1940, and while the Blitz is killing Londoners by the hundreds, a methodical madman is killing them one at a time. In analyzing his MO, Detective Morris Black comes to a startling realization: The murderer seems to have advance knowledge of where the Luftwaffe will be dropping its bombs. Overnight, Black's comparatively simple case of serial murder has exploded into a complex web of espionage. Untangling the threads will force Black to grapple not only with the killer, but also with a vicious Gestapo spy and with the poisonously polite anti-Semitism that runs through the British police force.
