Acclaimed crime writer Cathi Unsworth brings wartime London to life, as magic and murder swirl together to create a spine-chilling mystery
Few people can match her extraordinary capacity to capture the atmosphere of louche, bygone London and the mood of its people. In Without the Moon she tackles the blitzed city of 1942 with the same unerring touch.
Describing Cathi Unsworth as a crime writer seems limiting, there's so much more to say.
The First Lady of noir writing
Using real-life material Unsworth has created a brilliant, swirling maelstrom of a story ... The vision of London after nightfall is amazing, an intermingling of prostitutes, spivs, villains, cops, communists, soldiers, journalists and psychics, hanging out in dark alleys, dodgy bars, seedy hotels
A classic noir novel in every way
