"If you’re only in it for the war scenes, or the romance, by all means proceed with wild abandon – you will love this read. However, if like me this book touches you deeper than that, if it strikes you straight to the core and gets you really thinking well past your bedtime on a school night – then I would love to engage with you and discuss this further."

The term film noir was coined in France, after WWII, when many Hollywood films finally arrived in Europe. French critics noticed a new trend in the American crime films: they were grittier, dirtier, more disillusioned and generally more pessimistic than Hollywood films ever used to be. These critics noted a trend that seemed to have spontaneously emerged in Hollywood during the war and termed it ‘film noir’ (literary ‘black film’), creating a concept that previously hadn’t existed.
