This week, Summer at the Library highlights The War Widow, by Tara Moss; a crime novel set in Sydney, Australia just after the end of the Second World War. Billy Walker, the protagonist, is a former war correspondent, but finds herself pushed to the sidelines by the newspapers to find jobs for the returning soldiers. Billy decides to re-open her lost father’s private investigation agency, and clients start knocking. But then European immigrants appear at her door, their son missing, and as Billy starts to investigate, the people she questions show up dead. As the danger grows, Billy realizes that the aftereffects of the war are still haunting her and the rest of Sydney. This is the first book in the Billy Walker Mystery series.
