I am starting this review by saying I did not want to read this book nor did I want to write this review. To do so is to accept that the series has (temporarily) finished, and this is something I do not want to accept but hey ho here we are!

However, I can tell you I loved being back with the guys again, letting loose at a Christmas party they don’t want to be at and then bam we have a dead body.

When reading this all I kept thinking of the scandal that happened with Michael Barrymore over the

This is the final episode in the Soho Noir series by T.S. Hunter, oh and what a finale!

It’s Christmas, Joe and Russell have been invited to the flamboyant TV personality’s party. Reluctantly they go, taking their respective partners, Mike and Freddy along but then a body is found and the adventure begins.

With a fabulous cast of characters including my favourite, Patty, there’s much mayhem and drama as ever. Then the reprehensible Skinner arrives…..will he finally get his comeuppance?

Loved this finale to the most wonderful series of short crime stories set in the 80s. Mr Hunter is a gifted and underrated writer.

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

This historical detective series is set in Soho, London in the 1980s. The main character is Joe who becomes involved in various murders and is forced to deal with an homophobic police officer while trying to solve the crimes. He does this with a group of supportive friends, one of whom is a former police officer who was forced out when his sexuality was revealed.
The books are well written and a pleasure to read. The emphasis is on the crime and there is little romance involved in the stories,
