London, England Post WWII
It’s almost dawn on Christmas day when Newman’s phone rings. A City Councilor is sending his driver to bring the Private Investigator Newman to the scene of an incident.
The body of Raymond Jarrett is found outside a church. Jarrett is a pimp for young men to discerning clients. And oh yes, a scandal is now in the making.
I won’t go further into the story, you have enough to get you started. This book takes time to read, the wording while intricate, is fluid and absorbing.
Another book that caught me with its consonant work: Ain’t Nobody, Nobody by Heather Harper Ellett.
