Summary
"London, 1950. With the Blitz over and London still rebuilding after the war, jazz musician Lawrie Matthews has answered England's call for help. Arriving from Jamaica aboard the Empire Windrush, he's taken a tiny room in south London lodgings, and has fallen in love with the girl next door. Touring Soho's music halls by night, pacing the streets as a postman by day, Lawrie has poured his heart into his new home - and it's alive with possibility. Until one morning, while crossing a misty common, he makes a terrible discovery. As the local community rallies, fingers of blame are pointed at those who had recently been welcomed with open arms. And before long, London's newest arrivals become the prime suspects in a tragedy which threatens to tear the city apart."--Publisher descriptuion
