The Gilded Edge

UK Publisher: Constable & Robinson
London, 1965, and revolution and murder are in the air . . .
Vince Treadwell investigates the seemingly unrelated murders of a playboy aristocrat from Belgravia and a young black nurse from the wrong side of town. It takes the detective to the illegal drinking dens of Notting Hill run by the self-styled Black Power leader, Michael X; the nightclubs of Soho owned by the legendary gangster, Billy Hill; and the exclusive gaming tables of the Montcler Club in Berkeley Square, where the blue bloods and power players of England gamble thousands on the turn of a card. But a Vince Treadwell digs deeper he finds himself not only embroiled with a beautiful society girl, Isabel Saxmore-Blaine, but a world of espionage and corruption where the underworld mixes easily with the aristocracy, and no one is innocent.


Praise for The Gilded Edge:

The Gilded Edge is pure gold from start to finish, with a clever narrative and a very engaging cast of characters… a fast-paced piece of classic noir and a book that delivers plenty of bang… With some whip-cracking dialogue and trenchcoats aplenty, 400 pages are easily spent in the company of Danny Miller’s characters, and with its show-stopping, card-gaming, costume-filled finale The Gilded Edge deserves to rise to the very top of the pack’.

‘The Gilded Edge is frenetic and colourful . . . I would be happy to spend another 400 or so pages in the company of Vince Treadwell and his peers’.  Nick Houghton,
