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 Jake Arnott, Cathi Unsworth and Philip Kerr.
