From the Publisher
Annotation Although noir fiction seems an inherently American genre, this British thriller emulates the dark hues and rough characters of Jim Thompson or Dashiell Hammett. Set in post-war London, the story follows protagonist Tony Gerard, a former Resistance fighter turned part-time bookkeeper and part-time private investigator. When his boss at Hoxton Films asks him to look into a missing persons case on behalf of his studio's main star, Gerard stumbles into a twisted plot engineered by jewel thieves, gangsters, and other unsavory characters. This is Colin Murray's second novel.
Editors Note London, 1955. Tony lives an uncomplicated life. He's discreet and efficient. When a glamorous star turns to him for help when her younger brother disappears, events take a murderous turn-- and now his life is no longer simple.
