This is an another Number 1 e-book hit from the author of "The Hanging Shed". Together with "The Unquiet Heart", "Truth Dare Kill" tells the story of Danny McRae, ex-SOE agent in postwar London and Berlin. It's 1945: The war's over. But there are no medals for Danny McRae. Just amnesia and blackouts; twin handicaps for a private investigator with an upper-class client on the hook for murder. Danny's blackouts mean that hours, sometimes days, are a complete blank. So when news of a brutal killer stalking London's red light district start to stir grisly memories, Danny is terrified about what he might discover if he delves deeper into his fractured mind. As the two bloody sagas collide and interweave, Danny finds himself running for his life across the bomb-ravaged city. The only escape is through that gap in his memory...Will his past catch up with him before his enemies? And which would be worse? This title is suitable for readers of Philip Kerr, Ian Rankin, Christopher Brookmyre, Stuart MacBride, and Craig Russell.
Publishers Weekly, 2013-09-09 Ferris's worthy first in a series set in post-WWII Britain introduces Danny McRae, a private investigator struggling to recover from his traumatic time in a Nazi camp. A well-to-do woman hires Danny, who suffers from amnesia, to track down her missing lover, with whom she was quarreling just before an unexploded bomb went off and destroyed her London flat. The man, whose body was not discovered in the ruins, turns out to be none other than Tony Caldwell, a man who may hold the key to Danny's lost past. Word of a serial killer's rampage triggers disturbing visions in Danny's mind, and a stolen report confirms that he may be a greater monster than he ever suspected. The unfortunate detective must contend with lies and misleading information as he fumbles his way toward what he hopes will be the truth. The second in the series, The Unquiet Heart, was published in the U.S. in 2008. (Nov.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
