Today I’m coming at you with a little mention of the next book in the Soho Noir series by TS Hunter, Crazy for You (see my earlier post about Careless Whisper here).
Our favourite detective duo, Joe and Russell are back! This time to solve the case of a missing millionaire’s daughter. There’s gang rivalry, there’s a love triangle, and of course there’s Detective Skinner.
Here’s a bit of a blurb for you:
THE COURSE OF TRUE LOVE NEVER RUNS SMOOTH.
It’s 1987, and Soho is in the grip of another hot summer. While working part-time in The Red Lion, Joe finds himself agreeing to help a notorious gangster search for her missing girlfriend.
Antonia ‘The Gecko’ Lagorio is daughter to the ruthless but ageing gang boss, Tony ‘The Lizard’ Lagorio. When her girlfriend, Charlotte Fenwick, goes missing, Antonia turns to Joe for help, believing her to have been kidnapped by a rival gang.
Charlotte Fenwick is daughter to multi-millionaire, Charles Fenwick—who also happens to be one of Freddie Gillespie’s bigger clients. Keen to keep any hint of a scandal out of the public eye, Charles Fenwick had already asked Freddie to recruit Russell and Joe to help him find his daughter discreetly.
With both of them on the case, Joe and Russell find themselves trying to stop a turf war between the two rival gangs while uncovering all manner of dark secrets about the missing heiress and her troubled life.
Meanwhile Freddie Gillespie has a run in with an old foe that could see him lose both his job and his relationship with Russell.
I love these little novellas, this one coming in at just 118 pages, and geniunely look forward to the next one. They are just so fun, so readable, absolutely perfect for getting out of reading slumps, for sticking in your pocket for a train journey, or just for reading as soon as you get a copy in your hands because you can’t help yourself.
I don’t feel you need to read the other three in the series first but you should because they’re GREAT and why wouldn’t you at just £4.99? (Also if you collect the whole series you’ll get a lovely rainbow of spines).
Get yours now from the fabulous Red Dog Press.
