Cover detail of Death in the Air, by Kate Winkler Dawson
1952 post-war London was a city in the throes of tragedy. Thousands were sickened and killed from a great filthy smog that choked the city. In the meantime a serial killer named John Reginald Christie was lurking in Notting Hill, murdering multiple women over years and burying their bodies in his backyard, under floorboards and behind walls.
Author Kate Winkler Dawson tells these two parallel stories and their ultimate repercussions for the country in her book “Death In the Air: The True Story of a Serial Killer, the Great London Smog, and the Strangling of a City.”
