classic and suspenseful murder mystery from the acclaimed film-making
partnership of Frank Launder and Sidney Gilliat. August 1944. German flying
bombs are raining down on London. Directly under their flight path is a small
cottage hospital. Inside, the tension is almost unbearable for the dedicated

misses. Their close-knit community is torn apart by jealousy, emotional turmoil,
the horrors of war.and terrible secrets. When the local postman is brought in,
delirious but trying to impart an urgent message - the murders begin. Inspector
Cockrill is called in to investigate a truly baffling case where everyone has
secrets - but no-one appears to have a motive.

The story is excellent and the whodunnit lasts to the end, but you couldn't call it exciting. Nostalgic and well written, I'm a fan, what can I say? I'm a sucker for Sim's dry wit.
