Engaging, cheerful, opportunist James Ross. You won't forget him or the London he frequents for a long time after closing the book.
Highly entertaining ... his most accomplished [novel] yet ... highly intriguing and well-researched mystery.
Summons the spirit of Patrick Hamilton and George Orwell.
Steeped in historical detail, the novel evokes the sleazy side of the Thirties so vividly that you can almost feel the grease and grime on your fingers.
Unique and extremely well read.
