Series: Ted Stratton Series
After almost five years of conflict, London's exhausted inhabitants, pounded by the menace of Hitler's V1 bombs, are living in a world of dereliction. 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 suspicious circumstances near Fitzrovia's Middlesex hospital, Stratton soon realizes that someone involved is not who they appear to be. Someone has discarded their own identity and can move and kill freely.
Meanwhile Jenny, Ted's wife, is working at the local rest center, although her spirit of make-do is wearing thin. When she meets a bombed-out woman declaring that the man who claims to be her husband is an imposter, Jenny thinks that it must be due to shock. The reality, however, is much stranger and far more dangerous...
Ultimately, for Stratton and Jenny perhaps there is only one thing they can trust: their fear. And for one of them, that fear may prove all too real. An Empty Death is a compelling exploration of identity, memory and trust and is perfect for fans of Foyle's War.
