Format: Kindle Edition
Having really enjoyed the first outing for Detective Vince Treadwell Kiss Me Quick I was a little nervous about reading the second book in the series. Happily, it easily lived up to the promise of the debut and, perhaps, even eclipsed it.

It is London, 1965, and there are two murders. One, a vicious and brutal attack on Marcy Jones, a pretty young West Indian nurse. The second that of Johnny Beresford, from a prestigious family and a man of wealth and influence. Detective Treadwell and his partner DCI Maurice McClusky pull the Belgravia murder; where is soon assumed that Johnny's beautiful girlfriend, Isabel Saxmore-Blaine, killed him. However, as we know from the previous novel, Detective Treadwell does not take things at face value and it is soon apparent that the two unlikely murders are linked.

This is a very atmospheric book, brimming with the sights and sounds of Sixties London and with well known characters, such as Lord Lucan, making cameo appearances. The investigation leads Detective Treadwell from celebrity photographers in Carnaby Street to protestors using Malcolm X as their role model, taking in gangsters and a network of old friends who met in the rarified atmosphere of Eton and now inhabit upmarket gambling clubs. As always, Vince is susceptible to a pretty face; in this case the lovely Isabel. Again, he is unable to accept advice about dropping the case and accepting the obvious answers - his sense of justice and sheer stubborn nature leading him into danger as he refuses anything but the truth. This is certainly one of the best detective series around today and I hope there are many more instalments to come. Highly enjoyable and highly recommended.
