Under a Lightning Sky
Pam Lecky
A WW2 Murder Mystery 
London is under attack. But within the rubble, a greater danger lurks…
The Luftwaffe has been bombing London continuously since September 1940.
During a bombing raid, Madeline Fairfax is caught in her kitchen whilst cooking for her husband and children. She becomes trapped in the rear of her home, but regains consciousness just in time to see a familiar face, offering hope of rescue. But instead, Madeline is tragically strangled to death.
As a dangerous murderer uses the Blitz to cover their crime, local detective Jamie Barton enlists the help of Madeline’s sister and volunteer firefighter, Penny Fairfax to help. Now, caught in a web of uncertainty and mistrust, a grieving Penny must find the truth and do whatever it takes to protect those she loves most.
Together, will they unravel this case before it’s too late…?
