Danny McRae has set up as a private investigator - what else is a demobbed SOE agent to do now that the war is over? Elegant, upper-class Kate Graveney has made a shocking admission, and Danny needs to get her off the hook. It's a struggle. The head injury that gouged his memory of an entire mission to France also gives him blackouts. Plus, the news of a brutal killer stalking London's red light district is making him uneasy, and a visit from an old adversary awakens dark misgivings.

As the odds stack up, Danny finds himself running for his life across bomb-ravaged London. And the only escape is through that gap in his memory. Download and start listening now!

Listener Opinions

    " I enjoyed this book. It was quite a short book and was quite fast paced. The story itself wasn't, in my opinion, the best.I did however, like the way Gordon Ferris writes it. I had read The Hanging Shed and enjoyed that too. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jack | 12/8/2013

    " An interesting and enjoyable murder mystery set in just-post-war London. The key character is just starting out as a private eye whilst still recovering from his war injuries. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Nikki | 12/8/2013

    " Not as good as the hanging shed, but not a bad detective novel. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Naomi | 6/24/2013

    " what a shame. this turned out to be a cliche ridden mess of a book; down to the comely and mysterious client and a villain who "twists his mustache." i was relieved when the inevitable reference to Raymond Chandler came. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jean Gill | 2/27/2013

    " Good period detail (post WW32) creates atmosphere in a classic detective plot. Apart from the narrator, the characters are rather stereotyped by that sometimes works as Ferris deliberately goes for a Chandleresque style that verges on pastiche. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jim Thornton | 11/24/2012

    " Set in immediate post war Britain, this was a good tale. Some dialogue seemed too modern for the period, but aside from that a good flow to the story. I felt the strange relationship between Tony, Liza and Kate was a bit over the top for the plot, but I'd still give it a go! "

    " Although a pretty good read, just not up my alley. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tarrnz | 8/27/2012

    " Enjoyed this book, so much so that I bought more Gordon Ferris books online. "

    " I like the historical gum shoe, although the who dunnit aspect was visible a mile off. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 David | 1/17/2012

    " Would not have normally picked up this author but as a kindle read turned out to be quitye good. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Pam | 1/16/2012

    " Interesting setting just after WWII. Bit Raymond Chandlerish. Writing moves about in style, not consistent. But OK. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Julie | 11/28/2011

    " A hard-boiled-ish historical mystery set in post-war London. I liked the mystery and the main character, though one Chinese side character's patois was pretty eye-rolling. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Maggie White | 10/24/2011

    " Another great book from Gordon Ferris. About a Glasgow chap that becomes a PI in London after the war. He has bits of his own past missing which he is trying to piece together. He gets a case which leads him to all kinds of conclusions and some closure on certain areas of his life. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mary-ann Nossent | 10/19/2011

    " Got this as a 99p from Kindle. Possibly would have passed me by otherwise so pleased as I really enjoyed it and gone on to read another of his "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Shirley | 5/24/2011

    " I read the Kindle version which at £1 was great value. I love Ferris's writing and I love the landscape and characters he creates. No spoilers, but there was one aspect of this book that simply didn't work for me and that's why it only gets 3***. "
