Nick Wastnage's twitter profile reads: 'A crime writer and an optimist.' Playing Harry is his seventh novel. He's been a record salesman, a decorator, and a marine. He was once shot by terrorists, and winched a helicopter from the jungle to safety. He lives with his wife in Bucks.

Nick Wastnage is at his best orchestrating tales of cat and mouse thrillers. Playing Harry is Wastnage at his zenith as he lays out the tale of journalist Harry Fingle. A story that builds like a snowball gathering steam as it rolls downhill, this seemingly simple story of justice gets larger and more complicated with each flip of the page. Before we even know what hits us we are embroiled in an international scandal lined thick with layers of love, intrigue, and corporate power, all of which is laced with unrelenting action.
I have now read several novels by Wastnage and this one tops what has already become a fairly impressive collection by one of the UK’s best storytellers.

"Playing Harrying" by Nick Wastnage was indeed at good mystery read. I was kept seating on the edge of my seat...quickly turning the ages until I was finished with this wonderful read. Be ready for a action packed read that will have you waiting for the next twist and turn because there will be many for "Playing Harry." Being a senior journalist working for 'The Morning Times was what Harry loved. However, problems came.... and he had been found not guilty of a trumped- up charge...and that is how this story starts. The author was able to keep the reader very interested in what was going on....the death of his brother...sister-in-law... all comes together in a violent international conspiracy that will only leave you saying WoW!
The characters were simply off the chart....good.....here are a few...Harry Fingle, Philip Stacey, Amie Lue, Richard Morecombe, Kate Fisher, Gary Lester, Jimmy, Ed James, Alex Goad, Clair & Joe Fingle, John Edwards, Dave, Jackie, Boris, Natasha, Scott Reynolds, Paul Thompson, Jill Fellows, Sheila Robinson, Mirman Rodriquez and I am sure I have left out someone. All of these characters had their certain amount of flavor(even the bad) that truly added a plus to this excellent read to find out how. Now to find out more you will simply have to pick up "Playing Harry" to find out.
If you are in for a good mystery with corruption, conspiracy, drugs, lost love, grief and more.... you are at the right place for "Playing Harry" and I would recommend this novel as a excellent read for you.
