It is 10 November 1944 and a young woman in a woollen coat steps off a trolley bus into the darkness of wartime London and vanishes. Sixty years later, museum curator Harry Stammers receives an intriguing invitation from Bletchley Park veteran Elsie Sidthorpe. Aided by Ellen Carmichael Elsie's great niece, Stammers sets out to discover the truth about what happened to Martha Watts.

THE SHELTER introduces Harry Stammers, curator at the Britain’s former code breaking centre, and tells the stories of Martha Watts, one of the thousands of women who worked there during the War and Arthur Wallington, who finds her sitting on an upturned crate, nursing a twisted ankle, in an air raid shelter one hundred feet below London’s Haverstock Hill.

Sixty years later and the search for Martha Watts leads Stammers and Carmichael to Belsize Park and the deep level air raid shelter below the Underground Station. But as they begin to unravel the truth, a chain of events convince them that somebody knows about their search - somebody who will go to extreme lengths to stop them.

For Stammers, the search for Martha Watts brings the spectre of his own mother’s disappearance, when he was eight years old and the fear that it may already be too late to find her, to the fore. As the pressure builds and events spiral out of control, Stammers finally makes the link that will ultimately unravel the mystery. But as the pieces of the puzzle click into place it may already be too late for Ellen Carmichael.

With the mysterious ‘Stephens’ determined to stop him, Stammers has twenty-four hours to find her. Convinced that he has discovered the truth about the disappearance of Martha Watts and the whereabouts of Ellen Carmichael, Stammers races again to the shelter. When the final confrontation comes, Stammers discovers that all is not as it seems.

Introducing Bletchley Park curator Harry Stammers, THE SHELTER is the first in a three-part series of thrillers, which span a period of some sixty years.

Taking the codebook from the petty officer’s kitbag, one night in 1944, in the little Wolverton pub, had been like tossing a stone into the ocean. The ripples of it seemed endless. Now, some sixty years later, time finally catches up with Bletchley Park veteran Elsie Sidthorpe, as she is tested once again by Günther Möller, the renegade German with his own hidden past. This time Elsie has an insurance policy. Or two, in fact. When the first of them fails, Bletchley Park curator Harry Stammers is thrust into a desperate race to
unravel their secrets and the truth about a mother who has been missing since his childhood.

With the mysterious ‘Smith’ manipulating events for his own covert ends and Möller preparing his final move, Stammers and the acid-tongued Jane Mears must accomplish the impossible. But not before they have deciphered the secrets of BUILDING 41.

BUILDING 41 is the final episode in the Harry Stammers Series.
