Murder at Lord's Station

The gripping wartime mystery series

Allison & Busby Ltd

March, 1941. London is the scene of nightly destruction as the Blitz continues, and the bombing is taking its toll on the city's inhabitants. Detective Chief Inspector Coburg and Sergeant Lampson are recovering from a devastating bomb attack on the Café de Paris when they receive a call asking them to go to the disused Lord's Underground station where the body of a man has been discovered outside the formerly busy station. The dead man was the victim of a brutal attack, beaten to death by what appears to have been a cricket bat.

Could the dead man be associated with the British Empire XI, made up of players from Great Britain and far-flung corners of the globe, who are playing at the world-famous Lord's cricket ground? Coburg and Lampson are put in a spin by this complex case.
