If ever a book destroyed any nostalgia for the post war era it s The Air That Kills Superbly written and evocative of the dreariness of England after the Second World War Weak beer shabby pubs overflowing ashtrays and the awful weight of social convention stifling everyone The characters are well realised and their often horrible personalities brought vividly to life The author conveys beautifully the plight of women too who were still very secondary in all aspects of social lifeThe book is a study of the period wrapped up in a police procedural rather than a straightforward whodunit but the resolution of the various crimes is very satisfying
