The Fifth Man

Hannah Howe

I’m researching a mystery novel set in 1948, working title The Fifth Man. That year was memorable for many notable events, including:

The nationalisation of the railways in Britain

The first Kinsey Report into sexual behaviour

Gentleman’s Agreement won the Oscar for Best Picture

The film premiere of Hamlet

Australia’s cricket team, ‘The Invincibles’, toured Britain led by Don Bradman

Columbia Records introduced the LP

The Manchester Baby became the first stored-program computer to successfully complete a program

The film premiere of Oliver Twist

The Summer Olympics in London

The founding of the National Health Service in Britain, inspired by Welsh politician Nye Bevan. This will be central to my story
