Private detective Benjamin Thomas is hired to find Beatrice Chasingly, a woman with a troubled past. A smarmy ex-husband, a cunning insurance salesman, a landlord with knuckledusters, and a psychiatrist with links to MKUltra all seemed to have played a part in her disappearance. Ben follows a trail of dead bodies down a rabbit hole where he uncovers a sinister plot, certain to change America’s future. His final showdown against the conspirators not only has him facing death, but the loss of his soul.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Great Piece of Noir Fiction

A great novel! Thoroughly enjoyed it from start to finish. Noir fiction that would make James Ellroy proud. Can’t wait for the next one.

5.0 out of 5 stars Intricate plot, compelling characters from an author with a deep appreciation of noir literature

A new author has clearly deeply immersed himself in the traditions of noir detective stories. This book is dark as night. The plot will pull you in, you will become involved with the characters and there is a major plot twist near the end. Highly recommend although you may take up smoking and vodka.

5.0 out of 5 stars Noir at its finest

To paraphrase Eddie Muller of Noir Alley, No Solace in Death is the noir stained debut novel by Doug Herle. Filled with many unredeemable characters, especially the main protagonist, the book is a marvel of a convoluted plot, well written and utterly enjoyable.
