A 1940s mystery
Erdington, September 1944
As events in Europe begin to turn in favour of the Allies, Chief Inspector Mason of Erdington Police Station is once more prevailed upon to solve a seemingly impossible case.
Called to the local morgue where a man’s body lies, shockingly bent double and lacking any form of identification, Mason and O’Rourke find themselves at Castle Bromwich aerodrome seeking answers that seem out of reach to them. The men and women of the royal air force stationed there are their prime suspects. Or are they? Was the man a spy, killed on the orders of some higher authority, or is the place his body was found irrelevant? And why do none of the men and women at the aerodrome recognise the dead man?
Mason, fearing a repeat of the cold case that dogged his career for two decades and that he’s only just solved, is determined to do all he can to uncover the identity of the dead man, and to find out why he was killed and abandoned in such a bizarre way, even as Smythe demands he spends his time solving the counterfeiting case that is leaving local shopkeepers out of pocket.
Join Mason and O’Rourke as they once more attempt to solve the impossible in 1940s Erdington

Stacy Townend rated it it was amazing *****
Well got me loved the read I was so sure I knew who was responsible buying how or why then wham….. I was proved wrong great stuff. Absolutely wonderful fabulous plot, great twists and turns , any mystery reader will love this. This is MJ’s second instalment at murder mystery and I was not left wanting Mason & O’Rouke return searching for a murderer of an unknown man, who is he a wartime spy who knows the team are busy already with the counterfeiting case which seems to be going nowhere. I won’t spoil the story but as you read the book I kept going on its him no it’s him on no it’s them. Excellent just what I want and love from this type of book. MJ has yet again created a wonderful masterful plot which is full of suspensions twists that kept me enthralled and reading . Well done
