Fast paced, punchy and chilling in its intensity, this is a compelling and fascinating novel. Enter London just after the Second World War, a London without; torn, broken, perplexed but surviving. Ferris describes thoughts, feelings and surroundings with such depth and perception, you feel you have been transported and are walking the sorrowful streets alongside Danny.
After the show stopper of a first chapter, you will find, if you've already read the authors Brodie novels, a similarity in the lead characters. Both Brodie and Danny are Scottish miners sons, they've been to University and started a police career before enlisting in the army. This story and Danny however, take their own distinctive path. Ferris introduces this tortured, shrewd and intriguing new Private Detective with impressive style. A missing year, harrowing memories of Dachau Concentration Camp and Ripper style killings turn this into an agile and frightening game of chase through London. ~ Liz Robinson

Synopsis

Truth Dare Kill by Gordon Ferris

1945: The war's over. But there are no medals for Danny McRae. Just amnesia and blackouts; twin handicaps for a private investigator with a filthy rich client on the hook for murder. Danny's blackouts mean that hours, sometimes days, are a complete blank. So when news of a brutal killer stalking London's red light district start to stir grisly memories, Danny is terrified about what he might discover if he delves deeper into his fractured mind. As the two bloody sagas collide and interweave, Danny finds himself running for his life across the bomb-ravaged city. The only escape is through that gap in his memory...Will his past catch up with him before his enemies? And which would be worse?

Reviews

'Brutal, bloody and totally engaging, Truth Dare Kill is sure to be a favorite for the fan of noir and for the fan of well-researched period mysteries, too. Highly recommended.' -- iloveamystery
