However. this doesn’t stop him from investigation the murders of of two young women and ruffling the feathers of a particularly nasty London gangster.
Dominic Milne’s Act Of Contrition is a blinder. The pacing is tight, the cast of characters is rich, the plotting is labyrinthine, the dialogue is sharp.
Brutal and breathless, Act Of Contrition is the first in what looks to be a cracking new crime fiction series.
I loved it.
