DEATH IN A BLACKOUT Billie Harkness, Book 1

by | Read by Elizabeth Sastre

Mystery & Suspense • 9.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2022

The first in a WWII mystery series, narrated with energy by Elizabeth Sastre, features plucky British Women's Police Constable (WPC) Wilhelmina "Billie" Harkness. When a timely letter from a distant cousin, an effervescently voiced Lydia, arrives after a tragic accident, Billie seizes the opportunity for a fresh start in a new city. She soon joins the recently established WPC to investigate the suspicious death of a young art student. Sastre energizes Billie with verve and determination as she doggedly pursues answers. Alongside her reluctant partner, the earnest Special Constable Upton, she engages with an Irish priest, an irate councilor, and other well-characterized residents. Disparate threads surrounding the case come together gradually, presenting listeners with a few twists and more than a few red herrings.
