Slow Burner

This splendid Noir novel starts slowly and builds into a deeply satisfying tale of seedy 1960's Britain. The sexual proclivities of the Establishment highlighted in scandals such as the Profumo Affair is the fulcrum around which an emerging post war liberalism is explored.
The central character is a real fallible human being struggling in a largely corrupt police force and is very likeable.
The narrator Paul Thornley was perfect, although a little research on pronunciation of unfamiliar words would not have gone amiss.
I can only hope for more well crafted works by Danny Miller - I was hooked.
