In this sequel to Farthing, Inspector Carmichael has just come off the Farthing case and has been assigned to a bombing which killed leading actress Lauria Gilmore. Meanwhile Viola Lark has been chosen to act Hamlet in a gender-switching production of the play following Gilmore's untimely death and is drawn into a plot to kill Hitler at the opening night of the play, along with Prime Minister Mark Normanby, the lead figure in the increasingly fascistic government.

Very interesting slant on how things might have been if Britain had taken a different road in 1941. This writer is said to write Science Fiction, yet this book seemed to me to be uncomfortably close to the way things are moving, not just in Europe but in our own country. I'm really enjoying this book, but there is much to feel doscomfort with if we accept this reality when racism (against Jewish people) is acceptable as it was in pre War Germany. Read it if only to alert yourself to how things can slide into a loss of freedom.

Stronger than FARTHING, but still feels slightly undeveloped.
