Elizabeth Sastre delivers an upbeat narration of the second in this WWII mystery series. Someone is breaking into air raid shelters, stealing whatever valuables can be sold on the black market. When a body is found in a shelter, WPC Billie Harkness must convince her police colleagues that she's as capable as the male officers. When she starts asking too many questions, she runs into a wall of angry male hostility. Sastre makes Billie an appealing character, filled with grit and gumption, determined to prove herself. Most of Sastre's male characters sound authentic, although the menacing detective who sullies Billie's name is a bit overdone. Sastre's performance is engaging, offering a vivid picture of the treatment of women and life in England during the war. S.J.H. © AudioFile 2023, Portland, Maine [Published: JUNE 2023]
