Imperial War Museums
A republished classic of wartime writing to bring the best of British wartime fiction to a new audience, presented with a contextual introduction.

Plenty Under the Counter: a murder mystery set in Blitz-torn London. Flight-Lieutenant David Heron is a week away from his return to flying spitfires and has his mind on winning the hand of nursery teacher Tess. When a body is found in the garden of his lodging house Heron turns sleuth and is drawn ever deeper into a murky world of Black Market dealing, racketeers and shady characters. Can Heron solve the crime and win the girl before his leave is up?

Originally published in 1943, inspired by author Kathleen Hewitt’s (1893-1980) experiences in theatreland, bohemian Soho and wartime London.
