After a series a bad choices of unknown authors, finally hit on this. No fill in (unrelated to pushing plot forward) and doesn't slag along.
Tight and unexpectedly good ending.
For those of you who think a book with "DI Harland" in the title will be about DI Harland and/or detective work, let me disabuse you of that notion. This book is about the murderer and his schizophrenic girl friend. Until the last few chapters Harland is only a minor character. Furthermore, he is only peripherally involved in bringing the story to a conclusion. He happens to be present at the ending, but not because of any detecting or deducting. The narration was very good, but the story was a solid "meh".
