Picking up the scintillating spy story that began with series opener The Ministry of Unladylike Activity, Robin Stevens’ The Body in the Blitz is nothing but sparky and slickly plotted. A blitz-time blast of a book that’ll have fans of detective fiction reading under the covers, set on figuring out whodunnit for themselves.

It’s 1941 the Ministry of Unladylike Activity is training up children as spies. Fresh from uncovering a Nazi spy and solving a murder, May, Nuala and Eric are summoned to London by May’s older sister, Hazel. Nuala is thrilled to be travelling to the capital, “to help with spy stuff. There won’t be any murders waiting for us this time.” Famous last words, of course, for it’s not long before a body is found in a bombed-out house on the trio’s street.

As a pulse-quickening, perilous spy story with French connections unfolds, The Body in the Blitz blazes with secrets, suspicion and the exhilaration of solving a high-stakes case.
