    One thought on “Noho”

    1. I received this book for free through First Reads.Noho is an accomplished thriller Although the story revolves around spies in pre war London, the story comes across like a Philip Marlowe story with a flawed main character and glamorous women who draw him into an ever deepening web of intrigue and betrayal The main character is a world war 1 veteran who used to carry out covert missions and assassinations behind enemy lines and is now working as a private detective haunted by what he had to do [...]

    2. James Davis delivers a gritty Noir tale with his newest release called Noho The novel takes place in Soho, London sometime in the 1930 s His character Nick Valentine takes us right into the seedy sections and leads us on a world wind tour as he attempts to solve a murder, protect his dame and figure out who the good guys are.As I read this novel, the whole tale came alive for me in black and white It reminded me of the old PI movies I watched as a teen I could see the art deco styled lounges and [...]

    3. This book was Noir at it s finest right down to the last page I loved it Great story telling great characters great setting pertaining to this genre of literature If someone told me they were planning on writing a hard boiled detective style novel I would tell them to take notes form this book and author Once again classic

    4. LOVE LOVE LOVED IT Amazing storyline with lots of twists and turns I couldn t put it down I love this era and the author really brought to life the sign of the times I want to see Nick Valentine again.

    5. What a rattling good yarn Spies, murders, double crosses, gangsters, beautiful but morally flawed women, sexy but cynical and possibly sociopathic men Really, this had the lot AND was set in a between the wars Soho that is instantly recognisable Thoroughly enjoyable

    6. Enjoyable tosh undermined by typos and an implausible plotThe story is set in Fitzrovia and Soho Fitzrovia is generally taken to refer to the area in London that lies north of Oxford Street and south of Euston Road I am baffled as to why author James Davis chose to call his book Noho Noho, or North Soho, is a name loathed by most residents of Fitzrovia and the name only emerged around 2008 by estate agents attempting to rebrand the area It has no relevance to 1930s London when the area was only [...]

    7. Kudos to James Davis for writing a fast paced and intriguing historical thriller NOHO kept me turning the pages in spite of the lack of editing to see what happens to Nick Valentine, a WWI survivor The story takes place in the 1930s near London s SOHO region Nick finds a dead woman s body and becomes implicated in her murder To extricated himself from charges, he must work undercover for the British Intelligence What Nick uncovers is than what his handlers had thought he was capable of discover [...]

    8. I would have enjoyed the book much if there would not be so many mistakes The typing errors gave me a headache and I was reading the book a chapter a week because it irritated me so much Otherwise it would be a lovely book, the author brought the characters to life perfectly, the twists were good, but so many typists errors are just so irritating.
