Gutsy Danny McRae returns ready for action in this dynamic and riveting read, set a few months on from Truth Dare Kill. This can be most definitely be read as a stand alone novel, however you will understand so much more of what makes Danny tick if you read his books in order. Post war London sees villains and corrupt coppers adroitly acquiring money while honest folk are seriously tempted by criminality in order to make ends meet.
Ferris maintains his deft touch in exposing the seedier side of life, his fabulous descriptions vividly bring to life the bomb eaten streets, bursting warehouses and conspicuously crimson parlours. Danny McRae; determined, driven and difficult is undeniably someone you would want on your side. Ferris reinforces his status as tenacious survivor when he drops him into Berlin. Ferris has the impressive ability to describe the daily struggle, the need for revenge, a city literally torn apart and make it touchable, understandable and so very, very real. ~ Liz Robinson

Synopsis

The Unquiet Heart by Gordon Ferris

Danny McRae, private detective scraping a living in ration-card London. Eve Copeland, crime reporter, looking for new angles to save her career. It's an alliance made in heaven. Until Eve disappears, a contact dies violently and an old adversary presents Danny with some unpalatable truths. His desperate search for his lover draws him into a web of black marketeers, double agents and assassins, and hurls him into the shattered remains of Berlin, where terrorism and espionage foreshadow the bleakness of the Cold War. And Danny begins to lose sight of the thin line between good and evil...
