    Sian Busby (Author)
London, July 1946. A woman's body is found in a disused bomb site off the Holloway Road. She is identified as Lillian Frobisher, a 'respectable wife and mother' who lived with her family nearby.

The police assume that Lillian must have been the victim of a sexual assault: but when the autopsy finds no evidence of rape, they turn their attention to her private life... How did she come to be in the bomb site, a well-known lovers haunt? Why was her husband seemingly unaware that she'd failed to come home on the night she was killed?

In this deeply evocative crime drama, Siâ:n Busby strips away the veneer of stoicism and respectability in post-war Britain to reveal a society riven with disillusionment and loss.
