excellent

this is my first john harvey book & it won't be my last. this is an engrossing story with believable and well rounded characters. excellent narrator. i found it hard to put it aside until i had finished the book. definitely some surprises that i didn't see coming.

Slow start but worth it.

I was thinking this was a pretty ordinary Police Procedural and then the surprise came.
I think I'll read more of Harvey's work

Nottingham

Happy with the reading, story etc, BUT it would have been more authentic if place names of some areas of the city had been pronouced correctly.

Kept my interest

I mostly enjoyed this book, but felt it became a little tedious at times. Nevertheless, I finished it and overall enjoyed it
