Claire Welch has been given access to thousands of hours of investigative journalism to create a comprehensive record of Home Front Killers from the heinous crimes of Gordon Cummins, the Blackout Ripper, to the pioneering work of Dr Keith Simpson, the first pathologist recognized by the Home Office and his secretary, Molly Lefebure, who recorded the details at crime scenes when foul play was evident. Discover the heinous crimes that took place during the years when Britain was entangled in global conflict. Uncover the criminals taking advantage while the country's authorities and its people were distracted in uncertain times.
