The perfect partnership – gang-busters by day, lovers by night…

Danny McRae, private detective scraping a living in ration-card London.
Eve Copeland, crime reporter, looking for new angles to save her career.

It’s an alliance made in heaven.

Until Eve disappears, a contact dies violently and an old adversary presents Danny with some unpalatable truths.

His desperate search for his lover draws him into a web of black marketeers, double agents and assassins, and hurls him into the shattered remains of Berlin, where terrorism and espionage foreshadow the bleakness of the Cold War. And Danny begins to lose sight of the thin line between good and evil…


The word-of-mouth hit that is leaving its fellow thrillers in its wake. Ferris is a wonderfully evocative writer.

Ferris is a writer of real authority, immersing the reader into his nightmare world... everything speaks of an original voice.

The rising star of Scottish literature.

Every now and then you come across a writer and wonder how on earth you haven't read their books before... Mr Ferris has confirmed himself as an exciting and original voice in the crime noir genre.
