9780749009953: An Instrument of Slaughter (The Home Front Detective Series)

1916. Inspector Marmion and Sergeant Keedy are assigned to the case when the body of a young conscientious objector is found bludgeoned to death. Public sympathy is lukewarm for conscientious objectors with some people even claim that a ‘conchie’ deserves to die if he won’t fight for his King and Country. As the detectives identify one suspect, others pop up in the most unexpected places. Everyone speaks well of Ablatt but is he really the saint they describe? Marmion and Keedy have to dig deep in order to unearth the instrument of slaughter and the person who wielded it. Marston has legions of fans for his Railway Detective series, among others, and they are sure to find the rich historical period of WW1 London very much to their taste.

Descripción ALLISON BUSBY, United Kingdom, 2012. Hardback. Estado de conservación: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. January 1916. Britain is on the brink of enforcing conscription. Eligible young men who have not yet signed up to fight are despised as conchies and shirkers , subjected to hatred and verbal abuse. Cyril Ablatt, leader of Shoreditch s group of conscientious objectors, makes a rousing speech at a meeting of the No-Conscription Fellowship, refusing to be an instrument of slaughter in a khaki uniform . When Cyril is brutally bludgeoned to death, Scotland Yard detectives Inspector Marmion and Sergeant Keedy are assigned to the case. As the pair build up a portrait of Cyril, they unearth an intriguing private life behind the man s saintly facade. It soon becomes clear there are plenty of suspicious characters with motives for the killing. Meanwhile, public sympathy is lukewarm. Some people even claim that a conchie deserves to die if he won t fight for King and Country. And in the wake of the murder, three close friends of Ablatt fear that they may also be under threat. Marmion and Keedy will have to work fast to find the killer before any more deaths occur . Nº de ref. de la librería AAT9780749009953
