In June 1916, a young woman is found murdered in a cinema. Harvery Marmion and Joe Keedy set out to find the killer who so elusively fled in the dark. Before long, two more victims, of striking similarity but differing backgrounds, are found dead around the city. Meanwhile, miles from home, Marmion's son Paul prepares for life on the front line as he marches towards the Battle of the Somme. Suffering a vicious blow in No Man's Land, Paul is left blinded for the rest of his life. Marmion must come to terms with the permanent darkness of his son's life, while continuing to search for the brutal killer who only strikes in the dark.

This series helps us understand World War I from several points of view--the soldiers on the battlefield as Paul Marmion is in the Battle of the Somme; the families at home, particularly those families whose members volunteered together, decimating a generation; those in government and commerce who had to cope with fewer people to do the work. When the first victim, a young woman, is killed in a movie theatre, while watching Charlie Chaplin, the community is divided as to the advisability of attendance at the new movie theatres. However, the plot thickens as the second victim is killed in a park. The killer leads D. I. Marmion and Sgt. Keedy astray by sowing clues pointing to innocent acquaintances. Will they track the killer down before he kills again? This was a real cliffhanger set in an interesting period in history.
