'There is no one writing better police procedurals today.' Daily Telegraph

Does crime ever pay? DC Winter is about to find out.

DC Winter, sacked from the police, has joined the city's premier drug baron, Bazza Mackenzie. Adrift in a world of easy money and brutally hard-won respect, Winter appears to be in his element. Worryingly so...

DI Faraday, meanwhile, is deeply involved in two high-profile murders - but when one enquiry is taken out of his hands, he begins to uncover a web of evidence with profound implications for both investigations...and for the disgraced Paul Winter.

The relationship between the two men has never been easy but now might be the time to bury their differences.

Another Joe Faraday story, set as always in a detailed and atmospheric Portsmouth, populated by larger than life characters, including gangster "Bazza" Mackenzie and ex-DC Paul Winter. In this story Faraday is trying to solve the execution-style murder of a sharp property developer, whilst trying to develop his relationship with French Gabrielle and find out what his son JJ has been doing in Moscow. A real sense of authenticity of character, plot and location. Highly recommended.

This police procedural, set in Portsmouth England, has 2 strands. One focuses on two murders investigated by D.I. Joe Faraday (a businessman and junior government official are shot), the other focuses on a former policeman (Paul Winter, who was booted off the force when he became a bit of a boozer), and his relationship with the local drugs kingpin, Baz MacKenzie. Faraday and Winter are the 2 extremes of modern policing. Winter is the old school cop who hangs around in bars to pick up the "word on the street," while Faraday is more modern, able to delegate and build the alliances needed in modern policing. This book is genuinely a decent read. I lived in Portsmouth for 12 years and he caught the place and people pretty well. I'd've given the story four or five stars if I could have believed the Faraday storyline more. The are no seeming links between the 2 murders at the start of the book, but as the story develops you can just see the link developing a mile off. That's what let the book down for me. You know the murders must be linked (either to each other or the Winter storyline), and by about two-thirds of the way through, you don't need to be a genius to work out how they're linked. That's why I've only given it 3 stars.
