It grabbed me-- I loved the characters and their relationships, and the author does a good job of keeping you guessing as to who you should be worried about, trusting in or cheering for. I finished it a few days ago and I'm still thinking about the characters which is always a good sign.
Veteran thieves Hudson and Howell plan an audacious heist to steal a rare art treasure stored deep within the vaults of London Underground during the height of the Blitz. Yet when their meticulously planned robbery goes wrong, Hudson find himself shot, betrayed, a captive and with his life hanging by a thread.
Freed by an unlikely ally, he pursues his old mentor through London's dark underbelly in search of answers, becoming entangled in a morass of bent coppers and shadowy criminals, ultimately becoming embroiled in a sinister plot which could shake the very foundations of empire itself. When duty and dishonour collide, will this master thief serve his own self-interest or heed his country's call?
Cunliffe weaves a twisting, deeply satisfying tale which takes you through the very heart of war-torn London under the shadow of the Blitz. Powerful, evocative and at times even tender, you can practically smell the smoke, see the searchlights pierce the skies and hear the drone of German bombers overhead. Huddle down in the nearest Anderson shelter and enjoy this finely crafted and absorbing mystery thriller.
