Summary

A man is found in the middle of Alfreton Road in the early hours of a Sunday morning, stark naked and bleeding heavily from a chest wound - the latest victim in a series of vicious attacks on men. But enquiries in the mean streets of Nottingham's red-light district have brought the investigations to a dead end.

Charlie Resnick is the man for the job. And as if he hasn't had enough to deal with, he now has to provide police protection for a celebrity at the annual crime convention, an author with some very unpleasant "fan" mail. Chronically short-staffed as he is, it's a guessing game as to when Resnick's lack of manpower will have fatal consequences.

Critic reviews

"If the title King of Crime is to go to the male writer who is at the summit of his form, writing some of the best crime fiction on this side of the Atlantic, the crown is John Harvey's." ( The Times)

Excellent but hard to listen to

I have enjoyed numerous John Harvey books. They are always interesting, engaging and intelligent. My only problem with this is that I couldn't get it to broadcast loud enough to comfortably hear it soon my Kendel. I The reader was okay - this is a technical problem. Ended up listening with earphones which is not ideal for me.
