Product description


A skillful blending of the factual with a neat mystery. An engaging protagonist in Frank Merlin will be worth looking out for in the future. --Bookbag, 2011

The strength of this story is in the characterisation, and Mark Ellis clearly enjoys writing about criminals and sleaze balls of all levels who are out for their own ends and don't give a stuff about the war. Set in London, in January 1940, we are quickly propelled into the atmosphere and feel of desperation., 2011

Princes Gate is a novel that makes you want to read - you can't ask more from a book. [...] I struggled to put the book down and I can't wait to see what becomes of Frank Merlin, his colleagues and his friends in the next adventure. --Milos Rambles Book Blog 2011

`Princes Gate' is a memorable trip down history's lane. I particularly enjoyed the atmosphere and feeling of being out and about during those early days of the war. The attitudes of those in power and those just struggling to survive are very true to life and help to bring home how much some things have changed.

'Nostalgia,sex and intrigue all rolled into one-great!' -- 50Connect 2011

'A real treat' -- Hereford Times 2011
--Crime Squad, Ocotber 2011
