The Gilded Edge

Author(s): Danny Miller

Adult Fiction

It's the Swinging Sixties but not all barriers have come down - the aristocrats and financial power players still gather around the exclusive gaming tables of the Montcler Club in Berkeley Square while the rest slum it in the underground ska clubs and elicit drinking dens in Notting Hill. And it's against this background of London society and villainy that detective Vince Treadwell enters when investigating the seemingly unrelated murder of a young black woman in Notting Hill and blue-blooded Johnny Beresford in Belgravia. As Vince digs deeper he finds himself embroiled in a secret world of debauchery and corruption, where the underworld happily mixes with the aristocracy, and where no one remains an innocent victim. Praise for Kiss Me Quick: "A thrilling read". (Buzz Magazine). "Dark and involved". (Daily Express). "Unmissable". (Best). "This unusual and atmospheric crime novel suggests that Danny Miller is a writer to watch." (Good Book Guide)...One of those books that literally grabs you from page one". (The Week).
