Masterpiece Mystery: Foyle's War

abstract:For more than 35 years, Masterpiece has enthralled audiences with the works of the finest classic and contemporary writers interpreted by the world's foremost actors. We at BookBuffet have been partnering with them for just a short 2 years to provide our members with book give-a-ways to match the series and details on the authors and screenwriters. The Masterpiece schedule breaks the year into three “seasons”:

• In winter and spring, Masterpiece Classic features signature period dramas.
• In summer, Masterpiece Mystery! presents the best British mysteries.
• In fall, Masterpiece Contemporary shows dramas set in modern times.

Foyles War VI: This two part show airs June 8th and June 15th.
It is June 1945 and while VE Day has been celebrated in Britain, the war continues elsewhere in the world. The immediate aftermath of war was not a time of jubilation and optimism, as had been expected. The country was exhausted and poverty-stricken, families torn apart and rations tighter than ever before. Like everyone else, Detective Chief Superintendent Christopher Foyle needs to feel his way in this new world as he faces some of his toughest challenges and gripping plots to date. Keen to retire, but bound to his old job by the steep rise in violent crime that swept the country, Foyle is thrust into the dangerous worlds of international conspiracy and execution, military racism and national betrayal.

The Russian House
CS Foyle stumbles upon an international cover up, which, if exposed could bring down the British government, and reveal the War Office’s darkest secret yet.

Killing Time
Foyle goes head to head against the might of the US army, as racial prejudices erupt when a local girl is found murdered, and the finger of suspicion points to a black GI at the US military base.

The Hide
The newly retired Foyle battles to save a young man accused of high treason from the executioner's noose, in a case that will shatter his personal world to the core...
