Julia Underwoodabout this book: I was asked by Endeavour Press, the digital publishers, to write a series of crime novellas set in the 1940s for Kindle. 'A Murder of no Account' is the first of these and introduces Eve Duncan, a young woman who normally works for the Censor's Department and is co-opted by the local police in Shepherds Bush to help out, as they are short staffed due to the war. Eve helps to solve the mysterious death of a young, beautiful Polish refugee. Eve and her best friend Charlie and her terrier, Jake search for clues to lead to the discovery of the killer. The Blitz begins just as they find out the truth.
I did quite a lot of research about Shepherds Bush during the war for this book and even walked the streets of the area to get the geography right - even though things are naturally considerably changed.
My plan is to write at least two books about Eve and her adventures every year; more if I can manage it!
