Lonely Hearts by John Harvey

Lonely Hearts

Really quite enjoyed this. Found the Nottingham setting pretty convincing too. There is a reasonable pace to the story too but it does feel rather rushed at its climax.

It is all extremely reminiscent of Rankin’s Rebus (not entirely clear who came first, Resnick or Rebus) but none the worse for it. Anyway, glad to make his acquaintance and looking forward to the next in the series.
