'Sherlock Holmes expert Davies effectively captures London of a later era in this taut page-turner.' - Kirkus Reviews

London, 1942. Private detective Johnny Hawke is handed his third case: the mysterious murder of a crossdresser famed among London's secret nightlife. As Hawke unveils the grimy underbelly of wartime London, his progress is slowed by shadow authorities attempting to warn him off the case. Meanwhile an embittered army deserter haunts crumbled alleys of the blitzed city.

One is with the truth, the other is without conscience, their divergent paths sloping closer together hour by hour...
