Recommended Read: Wrong Crowd by Richard Godwin

cover-godwin-wrong-crowd-2015-200pxClaude, a divorcee with a dark past, holidays in the Caribbean where he meets Maxine, a beautiful woman who is out of his league. A night of passion leads to a dangerous obsession as Godwin twists and turns the story like a corkscrew and we encounter low rent thugs, London gangsters, psychopathic Russian mobsters, art theft and a great deal of violence.

There is a great sense of the grotesque about the characters in Wrong Crowd, and an almost Dickensian feel for London, with its low life bubbling just below the surface of all the glitter and glitz.

Wrong Crowd by Richard Godwin is a tense slice of international noir that oozes atmosphere and is his best novel yet.
