review In Her Defence
Bunch Courtney’s hopes
for a quiet market-day lunch with her sister are shattered when a Dutch refugee
dies a horribly painful death before their eyes. A few days later Bunch
receives a letter from her old friend Cecile saying that her father, Professor Benoir,
has been murdered in an eerily similar fashion. Two deaths by poisoning in a

Inspector William Wright.
Set against a backdrop of escalating war and the massed internments of 1940, the pair are drawn together in a race to prevent the murderer from striking again.
