The Fifth Man

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
