Books, Manuscripts
It is 1941. There may be a 'war of chaos' in the skies over London, but 'the perpetual war against the underworld of crime' must nevertheless continue on the streets below. Eschewing her journalistic post, Molly Lefebure accepts an offer to become a secretary for the famed forensic pathologist, Dr Keith Simpson. It is the beginning of an extraordinary adventure and 'Miss Molly' becomes Dr Simpson's right-hand woman, following him to crime scenes, courtrooms and mortuaries, taking notes, collecting evidence and witnessing the most shocking of sights. This book details many of her wartime stories.
