In 1940, England is desperate and fearful. The threat of a German invasion is real, and many German Nationals are interned in camps across the country. One such is on Prees Heath, near the small town of Whitchurch in Shropshire, where Tom Tyler is the sole detective inspector.
When a young women is found murdered on a desolate country road, Tyler who has no shortage of troubles of his own finds himself drawn into an uneasy alliance with one of the Prees Heath internees, a psychiatrist, who claims to be an expert on the criminal mind.

WW2 time, rural England. Several deaths occur that may or may not be linked to German and/or English spies. There is also a love story involving the investigating Constable.I found this somewhat slow going. Also, if you are not familiar with British slang/common speech(I am) you may have a rough time with the language.
