August 2014 eBook of the Month.
This is a book to make real coppers and crime sleuths smile, the first chapter slaps your interest then compels you to sit up and take note. The two main investigators have real substance and personality; DCI Chalke a monied maverick who is prepared to use the Ways and Means Act, and DS Leyden a smart, principled, street-wise fighter. There's also an extensive range of fascinating characters you will definitely need to keep tabs on as Greenwich sits centre stage, inviting us to witness the hidden, the corrupt, the illicit. It feels as though the author really understands these people, in this place, at the business end of things. Davies' has the ability to uncover the humour in the darker side of life and to set you in the middle of the action; it feels so real you could be there, adding your notes to the investigation. As in life, a few loose ends flap indolently around, teasing you, leaving you yearning a sequel so you can learn more about these characters and the world they inhabit. ~ Liz Robinson
