Darkness, Darkness | [John Harvey]

Darkness, Darkness

Thirty years ago, the Miners' Strike threatened to tear the country apart, turning neighbour against neighbour - enmities which smoulder still. Resnick had run an information-gathering unit at the heart of the dispute. Now, in retirement, and grieving over the death of his partner, the discovery of the body of a woman who disappeared during the Strike brings Resnick back, and forces him to confront his past.

What the Critics Say

"If only every series of crime novels could end with such grace and style." (John Connolly)

"Rich in wistful telling, the story holds your heart steady in a tight fist. It doesn't let you go. It doesn't let you let go of the man either." (Michael Connolly)

    "Very good story but bit slow in places"

    Enjoyed this although I thought it was a bit slow in places and I would probably have taken out some 'padding'. On the whole though worth sticking with, I didn't guess who but it was a plausible ending so top marks for that.

    "Expected more."

    Never having read any of the Resnick book's and going purely from the excellent reviews and the fact it is the last of the character's run, I expected more.
    Narration was quite good, story was ok and certainly gives a true'er more even handed account of what happened during the strike than most biased accounts, but the constant switching between 'then and now' got me thoroughly confused and ticked off, so much so that I found it difficult to care what actually happened in the end.
    It was ok but I expected more.
