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
