Publisher's Summary

Kenny Gabriel is three years away from turning sixty, has forty-three quid in the bank and is occasionally employed to find people who would rather not be found. Broke, clientless and depressed, he knows things can't get much worse. Then he's summoned to the office of London media magnate Frank Parr, whose daughter, Harry, is missing - and there's ten grand on the table to get her back.
It's a lot of money, and God knows Kenny needs the cash. But he and Frank have a history he'd rather not revisit. Kenny worked for him in the seventies, when Frank was the head of a Soho magazine empire and owner of an infamous nightclub. And Kenny might still be working for Frank now - if he hadn't witnessed his boss brutally torturing another employee.
Kenny suspects taking this job is a mistake, and he's probably right. Because while he may be done with the past, the past is far from done with him.

It's okay

Not my favorite book. The book was performed very well, but the story wasn't very interesting.

Soho History of a Murder

This is my first George Keen book and Simon Vance as the narrator absolutely loved his voice and his pause and his professionalism. The book was good very suspenseful . I don't know what to say other thsn it's a great detective novel . Typical of what I like , one of those nice British novels that I like and there's not really more I can say. It was a great mystery, the writer was awesome with the storyline . I mean it's your typical detective story but to my was something that you did drag you into the storyline and you were able to listen to it and derive from from what is said and put together the puzzeled meaning.
I think that it made the reader get involved with Keens thinking as far as who you thought was behind Harry's murder. I thought many times, but was wrong in the end. Who is behind all this ? assassins auction had me thinking . it also left me a little confused because to my understanding the person behind it wasn't even his child so a bit confused at the ending.

Soho in all its sordid glory!

A great mystery story with enough twists and turns to keep me hooked to the end. Kenny Gabriel is the PI, a London geezer with a deadpan wit and quite a few nice one-liners, like a down-at-heel Philip Marlowe. His home ground is an atmospheric Soho, with its shady past always lingering in the background. Simon Vance is, as ever, a fabulous narrator. He’s obviously enjoying himself, with his cast of larger than life characters. Great stuff.

Great stuff!

If, like me, you like a PI who is the wrong side of 50, has personal problems and drinks too much, Kenny Gabrial will satisfy you. This author is new to me and I look forward to more from him. The writing is reminiscent of detective stories gone by, but well written, in a modern context. The characters, places and circumstances are richly drawn and I settled in from the first chapter, thoroughly enjoying the ride through to the end. Simon Vance's narration is faultless.
