Notice To Die moves at a cracking pace. It's written in a tight racy style, reminiscent of the heyday of the best of 1930s crime fiction, along the lines of Raymond Chandler, but with the breakneck tough-guy, punch-em-up action of Mickey Spillane.
Harry Banner is a likeable world-weary hero, and you see the world of English town 'Southbury' through his jaded eyes - the good the bad and the very ugly indeed.
There are several sexy slinky women who catch Harry's eye, and it's clear that the trumpet-playing, handsome, wise-cracking sleuth can hold some of them in thrall, especially the beautiful nightclub singer, Maria, whom we get to know in detail.
Harry, doing his best to please his new client, the sensual but enigmatic Emma Brightwell, plunges headlong into trouble on every page. Whether he's within millimetres of being spliced with a circular saw, about to be buried alive, or to be shot by a beautiful woman, you're one hundred per cent with Harry and rooting for his success.
There's an ingenious plot that keeps you guessing all the way, with some delightful surprises. Populated with nasty vicious gangsters, almost nice but threatening cops, browbeaten hookers and a scattering of decent people doing their best to survive against the odds, the world of Southbury comes alive and you feel as if you're actually walking the mean streets and drinking bitter coffee in the sleazy diners.
The atmosphere of the 30s: the clothes, the cars, the way people behaved, the hard drinking and endless cigarettes, all this is is captured here in rich detail, as is Harry's essentially lonely world, where he does his best to do what's right, confronts danger with a sneer, and tries to survive. You feel as if you'd really enjoy his company.
This is a lively, action-packed, easy read that I absolutely loved. Cannot wait for the next Harry Banner adventure, which I have heard is coming very soon. . .

If you're a fan of a pulp fiction as I am, you'll thoroughly enjoy the adventures of Harry Banner. Stuffed with femme fatales, muscle bound goons, shady money men and a policeman who just doesn't like private investigators, this is a story set in 1930's Southbury.

The plot surrounds a sultry female who hires Harry to find out who is trying to kill her less than perfect rich husband. But all is not what it seems and Harry suddenly finds himself with a suitcase full of suspects and an array of bruises.

A great finale and a book written in a style that is a perfect homage to Chandler, Spillane and the like, I highly recommend this book and look forward to the continuing adventures of Harry Banner.

If you love Bogie/Bacall, old radio shows like The Third Man, and watch black & white movies, this book is for you! It is rare today to find a great "Film Noir" read. I recommend this book to all my friends!

My wife suggested a Harry Banner novel for me as I went into hospital and would be laid up for a while. Notice to Die is an English Detective story of mobsters and gang running set in the past. I wasn't so sure at first as it took a while to get going, which is why I gave it four not five stars. But I am so glad I stuck with it and as once I got over that initial bit, I couldn't put it down. Steve Horsfall is an excellent writer. I could see it all happening in front of my eyes! And I did not guess the outcome. All in all an enjoyable read and one I would recommend. It is worth hanging on in there!

A good story, if predictable. Nothing to add except that the entire book needs a proofread by human eyes. People, please stop thinking that automated tools will do this job! "Sat" & "stood" are used completely wrong throughout the book as well as other errors.
