1940. London is at war.

When World War II breaks out, the young policeman John Hawke enlists in the army.

His dreams of fighting for his country, however, are cut short after he loses an eye in rifle training.

Invalided out of the army and offered a desk job with the police, John sets up as a private investigator in London instead, hoping for excitement and danger.

In the autumn of 1940, John is hired to investigate the mysterious death of a young woman.

What is the connection between her brutal murder and the fading film actor Gordon Moore?

And is there a connection to the runaway boy who may have witnessed something terrible.

Told with wit and humour, while evoking an atmospheric picture of the home front during the dark days of the Second World War, ‘Forests of the Night’ is page-turning novel rich in period detail.

“Sherlock Holmes expert Davies effectively captures London of a later era in this taut page-turner” – Kirkus

“Johnny Hawke is a keeper” – Booklist
