It is 1941. While the “war of chaos” rages in the skies above London, an unending fight against violence, murder, and the criminal underworld continues on the streets below.

One ordinary day, in an ordinary courtroom, forensic pathologist Dr. Keith Simpson asks a keen young journalist to be his secretary. Although the “horrors of secretarial work” don’t appeal to Molly Lefebure, she’s intrigued to know exactly what goes on behind a mortuary door.

Capable and curious, “Miss Molly” quickly becomes indispensable to Dr. Simpson as he meticulously pursues the truth. Accompanying him from somber morgues to London’s most gruesome crime scenes, Molly observes and assists as he uncovers the dark secrets that all murder victims keep.

With a sharp sense of humor and a rebellious spirit, Molly tells her own remarkable true story here with warmth and wit, painting a vivid portrait of wartime London.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Gripping…like a pitch-dark version of Call the Midwife, dealing with the end of life rather than the beginning…Full of fascinating incidents, it is easy to see why this has been made into a drama by the creators of Downton Abbey.

    Sunday Mirror (London)

  • “A fascinating behind-the-scenes look at mid-century crime-fighting.”

    Independent (London)

  • “A secretary to a formidable London pathologist during World War II reissues her wry, grisly account of murder and corpses, first published in 1955…Preserves like a frozen capsule the British grin-and-bear-it spirit and vocabulary of the WWII years.”
