May 1915. As zeppelin bombs fall on London and with the sinking of the Lusitania, anti-German hysteria reaches fever pitch and attacks on German immigrants surge. Not even the West End of London is immune. Jacob Stein's bespoke tailoring business comes under brutal attack, leaving his safe ransacked, his daughter, Ruth, raped and traumatized and Jacob dead. Inspector Harvey Marmion is detailed to the case and faces an uphill struggle to track down the perpetrators, even up to the chaos of the Front Line. But was the murder as opportunistic as it first appears, or did someone with a deadly grudge plan the attack?

Having read the Railway Detective series as they come out, I decided to try the Home Front series by Marston as well. As expected his research was well done, his characters fully fleshed out, and the plot exciting and logical. I look forward to more adventures featuring DI Harvey Marmion and his family and Sgt. Joe Keedy, Marmion's second in command. WWI was a turning point in British and world history, so there were many social trends which lend themselves to storytelling.

Having devoured Marston’s Nicholas Bracewell series, I spent years sulking over the discontinuation before deciding to give the author another chance. Marmion and Keedy aren’t quite as charming as Bracewell, but it’s still a good read. The style is similar to Charles Todd’s Ian Rutledge series, with hints of Sherlock Holmes.
