London in the 1920s and 1940s provides the setting for these two delicious servings of Noir,

Cathi Unworth’s Without the Moon is set London during the long, dark days of the Blitz: a city outwardly in ruins, weakened by exhaustion and rationing. But behind the blackout, the old way of life continues: in the music halls, pubs and cafes, soldiers mix with petty crooks, stage magicians with lonely wives, scandal-hungry reporters with good-time girls. In the shadows DCI Edward Greenaway follows a bloody trail through backstreets and boudoirs, trying to stop the slaughter of prostitutes. Devil Take the Hindmost by Martin Cathcart Froden won this year’s Dundee International Book Prize. Perfect for lovers of Peaky Blinders and Brighton Rock, it’s a gripping historical noir set during the amphetamine-fuelled craze for velodrome racing which took London by storm in the late 1920s.
