Overview

“A master of the craft. John Harvey is lights out one of the best."—Michael Connelly

John Harvey has been described as the master of British crime fiction: From the mean streets of London to the jazz clubs and clip joints of Soho, this is a world of broken families, revenge killings, and prostitution; drugs, guns, and corruption; a world of overstretched police forces and underpaid detectives; men and women who strive nonetheless for a kind of justice; a world in which everything, even friendship, has a price.

Featuring characters like Frank Elder, who tried to turn his back on police work and failed; Jack Kiley, ex-cop and now a London-based PI; and the renowned jazz loving and much-loved Detective Inspector Charlie Resnick, John Harvey’s finely-crafted vignettes perfectly encapsulate life in the badlands of contemporary Britain.
