Death Has Deep Roots

At the Central Criminal Court an eager crowd awaits the trial of Victoria Lamartine an active participant in the Resistance during the war. She is now employed at the Family Hotel in Soho where Major Eric Thoseby has been found murdered. The cause of death? A stabbing reminiscent of techniques developed by the Maquisards. While the crime is committed in England its roots are buried in a vividly depicted wartime France. Thoseby is believed to have fathered Lamartine's child and the prosecution insist that his death is revenge for his abandonment of Lamartine and her arrest by the Gestapo. A last-minute change in Lamartine's defence counsel grants solicitor Nap Rumbold just eight days to prove her innocence.
