March 2011 Debut of the Month.

Shortlisted for the CWA John Creasey (New Blood) Dagger 2011.

Kiss Me Quick goes behind the headlines of rioting Mods and Rockers, and into the deadly world of a secret Corsican crime organization, a burgeoning drug trade, police corruption, pornography rackets, and the dark side of the music business. With its elaborate and compelling plot, a cast of deliciously treacherous and vividly drawn characters, this page turning thriller introduces us to the dangerous world of Vince Treadwell.

CWA Judges’ comments: 'Miller creates a dark and complex thriller set against a threatening and realistic evocation of 1960s Brighton, and the sleaze that underlies its vibrancy and excitement.'

If you like Danny Miller you might also like to read books by Philip Kerr, Cathi Unsworth and Jake Arnott.

I love reading because my cares & woes vanish for an hour or two whilst I read of the joys, adventures, lives of the characters in the book.

Jennifer Moville

Because of Lovereading I have broadened my reading horizons with some really great books that I probably would never have chosen myself.

Susan Walsh

As for why I'd recommend Lovereading, it's simple - it's a great place to get information and reviews about new books!

Margaret Freeman

A well laid out site, I love the fact that is separates paranormal fiction from fantasy and horror, which other sites don't.

My favourite thing about is the 'like for like' page this has really introduced me to some good reads! That and lots of honest reviews.

Sam Lewis

Lovereading tells me about new books before they hit the shelves, lets me find other authors I may like and has great prize draws!
