  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Abholler | 2/13/2014

    " I do love John Harvey, although this isn't my favorite of his. The story is sad, and the crimes that are detailed aren't so interesting that the sadness doesn't prevail. I have read that Harvey says this is the last Charlie Resnick novel, and I hate to see it end. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Anne | 2/12/2014

    " the perfect police procedure author for me Main character is a completely evolved person "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mick Grant | 2/4/2014

    " Haven't read any Resnick novels for a long time. This is up there with the best. A great series, arguably better than the Rebus books. There is a genuine shock event two thirds in. If you haven't read any of the series don't start here. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rob | 1/15/2014

    " I quite enjoyed this book, although I am not surprised that Inspector Resnick is retiring, he is like a bull in a China Shop. John Harvey's writing style is good and he does keep you interested, the ending was not what I expected. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dana Woodaman | 1/4/2014

    " If you like mysteries and haven't read John Harvey yet - run don't walk and grab this book, or any in the Charlie Resnick series. Gripping police procedural, engaging characters and very very English. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Alfred Nobile | 12/25/2013

    " My first read by this author. Effortless reading. The character of Resnik is well drawn and this novel has a good supporting cast. This has made me want to read more by this author and learn more about this maverick cop Resnik. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Gavin | 12/24/2013

    " Better than previous Harveys I've read, but still pretty run-of-the-mill stuff. Christie, Hill, Sayers, Brown, Doyle, Robinson, Rankin and many more easily surpass this author. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Ben | 12/23/2013

    " Read this for the Talking Library. Brit police-procedural/thriller. Not particularly engaging for me. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Herzog | 12/12/2013

    " I'd forgotten how much I loved this series. I really missed Resnick. It probably wasn't such a bold stroke to kill of his love interest since the series is essentially over. Resnick's taste in jazz is similar to my own. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kate | 12/6/2013

    " Good stuff as usual. I love a read that goes down as easily ass iced tea on a hot summer day. Engaging characters, well written. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Michael Lauro | 11/8/2013

    " Sometimes a good crime novel is what's needed "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Melissa McClintock | 10/16/2013

    " This is a good thick suspense, more than "mystery". The Resnick charachter is a down and out "retired' good cop so to speak. It reminded me of that old tv show "spenser for hire". If you like that type of realistic gritty hero drama, without intrigue, I'd recommend it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rick Hollis | 3/29/2013

    " A very intelligent mystery. I read it several years ago but did not remember it until the pivotal event [you will know it when you come to it]. This is a good, well written serious of books. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Anna | 3/28/2013

    " I thought it would be better. Or maybe I'm spoiled by Kathy Reichs, Patricia Cromwell and Karin Slaughter books. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dorian | 10/30/2012

    " Pleasingly old-school. (No chapters from psychopath's point of view.) More a (moving) meditation on grief than a crime story. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 stan | 9/19/2012

    " This is the first Charlie Resnick novel I have read ,and it certainty will not be the last . Brilliant in police procedure and cops DO bleed. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nancie | 4/30/2012

    " How did I miss John Harvey? Almost through this and can't wait for more. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sharron | 12/10/2011

    " I am so sorry that Harvey is no longer writing Charlie Resnick books. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Christianne | 11/12/2011

    " As always a great story, but this one is such a heartbreaker. Sometimes I think the Nottingham police have had more than their fair share of misery. I keep wondering if Resnick is back for a while now. It was sad when Harvey discontinued the series for a time. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Roberta | 10/17/2011

    " can't really get into it. probably won't finish it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 David | 9/4/2011

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Helena | 7/17/2011

    " Really enjoyed this book Typical male rather depressed detective working in a seedy part of Nottingham. The Nottingham tourist bureau will not be promoting his books Plots has twists and turns "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Lisa Bennett | 7/1/2011

    " really didn't get along with this book. found it so boring, and really hard to follow. was glad to finish it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Patrice | 5/24/2011

    " An incredibly moving portrayal of grief, with a twist that just knocks you flat (especially if you've read the previous Resnicks...). "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dawn | 5/23/2011

    " I really enjoyed this mystery, although I found the transition from the first half of the book, the set up, to the second half, the investigation, a little jarring. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Anna | 5/13/2011
