Prints in 3-5 business days
The book switches between post-war London and a small market town in Oxfordshire. A London club full of outrageous characters, spivs, extortionists, con-men & ladies of the night. This contrasts... More > starkly with a rural backwater, where it’s all wide lawns and narrow minds.

Shirley twists them all this way and that, in the end she proves to be the catalyst for an ending fitting for a bloodthirsty Greek tragedy. This has all of the elements that the discerning thriller reader craves, betrayal, revenge, older men exploiting a beautiful, under-age girl, a murder or two, convoluted plot twists, powerful & credible characters, dialogue that crackles and a gothic romance. This is literary noir at its best.< Less
