Meanwhile, MI5 agent Diana Calthrop is leading a covert operation when she discovers that her boss is involved in espionage. Only when Stratton’s path crosses Diana’s does the pair start to uncover the truth. And soon they also begin to realize they like each other a little too much. . . .

From the award-winning author of The Innocent Spy comes the next book in this exceptional series set in WWII London

Summer, 1944. After almost five years of conflict, London's inhabitants are exhausted.  War-weary DI Ted Stratton is no exception, but he cannot help being drawn in by his latest case. Called on to investigate when a doctor is found dead in Fitzrovia's Middlesex Hospital, Stratton soon realizes that someone involved is not who they appear to be. Someone has discarded their own identity, and that someone is on a killing spree.

Meanwhile Jenny, Ted's wife, who is working at the local recovery center, is also running on fumes. When a bombed-out woman shows up, declaring that the man claiming to be her husband is an imposter, Jenny blames the woman’s confusion on shock. The reality, however, is much stranger and far more dangerous...

Ultimately, for both Stratton and Jenny perhaps there is only one thing they can really trust: their fear. And for one of them, that fear may prove to be all too real. An Empty Death is a thoroughly riveting thriller.
