It is Autumn in 1940, and London is in the grip of the Blitz. An unidentified female corpse is discovered in an alleyway in Soho. It is the fourth to be found in the last few weeks. The womenall prostituteshave been horribly mutilated. It’s clear that in the darkness and confusion of the war-ravaged city, a "Blackout Ripper" is at work. Inspired by a true story, this is a breathtaking new novel from one of the most talented and distinctive crime writers working today.

'The Lover' takes as its inspiration the little-known but real-life case of Gordon Cummins, a young airman who murdered four women in the West End of London during World War 2. A noir novel in the vein of Graham Greene, it looks at how the pressures of war may lead people to lose their moral compass.
