Read The Sugared Game

Read The Sugared Game (The Will Darling Adventures #2) by KJ Charles

It’s been two months since Will Darling saw Kim Secretan, and he doesn’t expect to see him again. What do a rough and ready soldier-turne…

This hits the noir spot for me without the drawbacks of the rampant homophobia and sexism is works like Chandler’s, plus the characters actually have an inner monologue and reflect on and talk about their emotions. Apparently this series is inspired by pulp novels but I haven’t read any, so noir comes to mind despite it taking place in England with the added wrinkle of titles in addition to vast wealth.
