THE COURSE OF TRUE LOVE NEVER RUNS SMOOTH
It’s 1987, and Soho is in the grip of another hot summer. While working part-time in The Red Lion, Joe finds himself agreeing to help a notorious gangster search for her missing girlfriend.
Antonia The Gecko Lagorio is daughter to the ruthless but ageing gang boss, Tony The Lizard Lagorio. When her girlfriend, Charlotte Fenwick, goes missing, Antonia turns to Joe for help, believing her to have been kidnapped by a rival gang.
Charlotte Fenwick is daughter to multi-millionaire, Charles Fenwick—who also happens to be one of Freddie Gillespie’s bigger clients. Keen to keep any hint of a scandal out of the public eye, Charles Fenwick had already asked Freddie to recruit Russell and Joe to help him find his daughter discreetly.
With both of them on the case, Joe and Russell find themselves trying to stop a turf war between the two rival gangs while uncovering all manner of dark secrets about the missing heiress and her troubled life.
Meanwhile Freddie Gillespie has a run in with an old foe that could see him lose both his job and his relationship with Russell.
Book 4 in the Soho Noir series by TS Hunter, but can easily be read as a stand-alone, but you will be missing out on a fantastic series.
In this tale, a young heiress, Charlotte goes missing, her father receives a ransom note …so where is she? Who has taken her?
Charlotte’s girlfriend, Antonia, approaches Joe Stone, to ask for his help finding Charlotte. Antonia is daughter to the gangster ‘The Lizard’….is this a turf war?
So, Joe and his friend and working partner, Russell start looking into the case, with a little help from Russell’s boyfriend Freddie.
Meanwhile, Russell’s nemesis, Detective Skinner is trying to cause trouble between Russell and Freddie…
Can Joe and Russell find Charlotte before any harm befalls her?
While this is only a relatively short novella there is no shortage of action in this cosy mystery. A marvellously twisty plot, with tension, fun and a little love too. Brilliant.
