A CHRISTMAS PARTY WITH MURDER ON THE MENU
It’s Christmas Eve, 1988 and Russell and Joe are among the guests at a lavish party in a celebrity mansion in the heart of Soho.
Television presenter and national treasure, Nathan Bentley has a formidable reputation for legendary parties—with wall-to-wall celebrities, drink flowing, drugs, dancing, ill-tempered Cordon-Bleu chefs laying on the food and world famous musicians providing the entertainment. What could be better for a bunch of waifs and strays on Christmas Eve?
But when a body is found in the courtyard garden before the dessert has been served, questions begin to fly. Did he fall or was he pushed? And who of the many guests and hangers-on had either the means or motive for murder?
Hidden pasts and present jealousies all threaten to destroy a life carefully built in this festive crime caper set in the heart of London’s Soho.
Thanks to Dylan at Red Dog for my copy of 'Smalltown Boy' the final part of the ‘Soho Noir’ series.
Featuring Joe Stone and ex cop, Russell Dixon, this final part of this entrancing series by TS Hunter is another absolute Gem
Xmas eve and the guys have been invited to a party being hosted by celebrity tv presenter Nathan Bentley.
These parties are wild affairs, full of celebs and characters, drugs and sex and alcohol.
When a body turns up in the courtyard of the property, Joe and Russell set about finding out if it was an accident or something more sinister.
With plenty of suspects to point the finger at, this story is a cracking finale to an outstanding series of Novellas by T.S Hunter.
Short, snappy, entertaining stories, I almost marvel in how T.S Hunter makes these short stories feel like full length novels.
I hope for more from the guys in future!
