Farthing

Summary: 
In alternating chapters a young aristocrat newly married to her Jewish truelove and a Scotland Yard inspector strive to solve a country house murder. The twist is: it happens in an alternative 1949 England that had appeased Hitler, shored up its own moneyed powerful elite and begun an all-too-plausible descent into fascism, while the Reich held Europe, and Charles Lindbergh was the sympatico president of a racist and mercenary USA. Chilling, but so good! Can't wait to get on with the rest of the Small Change trilogy!
