April 1941: in the confusion of bomb-damaged London’s blackout, Squadron Leader Andrew Halford goes to check on his parents’ home. But he drives up the wrong road and enters the wrong house.

In the bedroom he finds a semi-clothed woman seated before a mirror. Gazing ahead. Looking straight at him.

The mistake he has made leads Andrew into a complex network of treachery and deceit. And on the track of a sadistic killer.

Spanning a single war-torn week, Winston Graham's Cameo is a brilliant evocation of the tension of Blitz-shattered London; the reckless bravery of the airman who live only for today; the thrilling discovery of young love.

The master in superbly entertaining form.
