'Mazy, pacy London noir' Ian Rankin

Ten days after the station closed, he was informed he'd been officially suspended pending a hearing over allegations of gross misconduct. No details. A few hours after that, he got a call from a man who wouldn't give his name but told him he was under surveillance...They were bracing themselves for a shit-storm. Stay safe, the caller said, and hung up.

Amber Knight is hot property - pop star, film star, front-page gossip.

DC Nick Belsey is less celebrated. He can't shake his habit of getting into serious trouble and his career at Hampstead CID is coming to a dishonourable end. He is currently of no fixed address - squatting in a disused police station round the corner from Amber's swanky Primrose Hill mansion.

But a knock on the door from a frantic and confused woman looking for her missing son is about to lead Belsey straight into the heart of Amber's glittering life. When a body is found and a twisted crime spree ensues, Belsey finds himself dangerously embroiled in a world of celebrity, obsession, glamour and desperation.

“House of Fame”

Love the Nick Belsey novels and the only reason this hasn’t got 5 stars is because (and it’s probably just me) I couldn’t make sense of the ending, but I shall definitely order the next book to continue the adventure.
