Already a veteran of two wars, PC Richard Bourton has joined the Met later in life than most of his fellow trainees on the rough streets of Notting Dale, a grimy, unloved corner of West London. It is hard for him to fit in. Amongst the bomb-sites and boarding houses, he stumbles on a man who has been beaten nearly to death. This discovery, in the swirly fog of 1952, will either make or break his nascent career.

thoroughly recommended. Good plot, well-told story with a factual serial killer at the core.
