Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
British author James (Wolves of Memories) creates such memorable characters in his full-length mystery novels about Det. Chief Constable Colin Harpur and his immediate superior, Asst. Chief Constable Desmond Iles, who work in an unnamed British city north of London, that they quickly come alive even in short stories. This collection contains three new Harpur & Iles tales, plus a couple of previously published adaptations from novels, reprints of several stories about other characters, even a short, tone-setting poem. All are literate, often jaunty, always interesting examples of the work of a first-rate author. Fans will enjoy reading the more delicious passages aloud. (Nov.)

Meet the Author

Bill James has been called "the Elmore Leonard of Britain's underworld" (Kirkus Reviews) and has been named a "Master of Crime" in a mystery roundup by the London Sunday Times, which said, "There is nothing else quite like this series of police procedurals. James is concerned with the dilemmas and difficulties of policing Britain's inner cities, and he addresses these in hard-edged narratives that leave readers gasping and flinching, praying the people in these stories never come to live in their streets." In addition to the Harpur and Iles series, James is the author of other mystery series and a book on Anthony Powell. He lives in Wales.
