'Fans of the offbeat will doubtless enjoy this quirky, engaging, Chandleresque detective story set in 1950s' London. The likeably lackadaisical hero and the vividly rendered 50s' setting make this an engaging and unusual read.' --Booklist
'Murray's 1950s' England, with men hardened by war and willing to take long chances, is the perfect milieu for the unflappable Gerard.' --Publishers Weekly
'Combines dollops of post-war atmosphere with thrills aplenty' --Kirkus Reviews
'An agreeable tale of desperadoes, diamonds, derring-do, divas and jazz'
