I loved the way Fletcher connected the two plotlines and settings through the different characters. A great read that kept me on the edge of my seat!

An interesting premise, but the writing just wasn't that good. It felt very flat and forced, and the people didn't seem real at all, especially the conversation.

A gripping and moving account of little-known post-WWII events in London. Well worth the read.
