The Gilded Ones


One hot day in 1984, intuitive designer Pulse attends two job interviews. The first is with a busy mainstream company. The second is with an apparently deserted practice located in an old London house owned by Patrick Lloyd-Lewis whose wife, Freia has recently died in unexplained circumstances.  

Realising that he had dreamt of Freia’s death the previous night and feeling compelled to solve the riddle of Freia’s death, Pulse accepts Patrick’s offer of a job. Delving into Patrick’s personal life, Pulse discovers that he is under suspicion from those closest to him. When a link emerges between Patrick, Freia and a gangster he had previously encountered in the North, will Patrick be proven responsible? And will Pulse find the killer before he strikes again? 

Inspired by the work of Angela Carter and Anthony Burgess, The Gilded Ones is a gritty psychological crime drama with twists and turns that will have readers hooked. Driven by it’s characters, the novel is simultaneously humorous, unsettling and disturbingly gothic.

I found this book to be an intriguing read. The plot was well established and keeps the reader entertained. Well worth a read for fans of the genre.

by Sue Blanchard

Now, the mystery and suspense in this book is enough to make you sit at the edge of your seat. One thing is certain, I'm a coward and not even my intuition would push me towards taking up a job to investigate my hunch on a murder, but this one right here, is just an awesome read. I bet it'd make a great movie or a short indie film.
