When a pacifist is found murdered, questions are raised: why did the man have a loaded revolver? Did he have enemies? As DI Jago digs deep into the man's past, it seems like more than one person might have had a motive for murder.

The Custom House Murder Summary

The Custom House Murder: The intricate wartime murder mystery by Mike Hollow

First Published as Enemy Action. September, 1940. With London having endured the Blitz for nearly a month, people are calling for vengeance, but once again the night heralds more destruction. In Custom House, anxious residents dutifully head to the nearest public air-raid shelter as the warning siren wails. When dawn brings the all-clear, people disperse, but one man remains - he is dead, stabbed through the heart. Detective Inspector John Jago discovers that the victim was a pacifist. But why, then, was he carrying a loaded revolver in his pocket?
