More Nottingham fun and games

Living Proof by John Harvey

When a man is found in the middle of Alfreton Road in the early hours of a Sunday morning, stark naked and bleeding heavily from a chest wound, he is the latest victim in a series of vicious attacks on men. But enquiries in the mean streets of Nottingham’s red-light district have brought the investigations to a dead end. Charlie Resnick is the man for the job. And as if he hasn’t had enough to deal with, he now has to provide police protection for a celebrity at the annual crime convention – an author with the some very unpleasant ‘fan’ mail. Chronically short-staffed as he is, it’s a guessing game as to when Resnick’s lack of manpower will have fatal consequences…

The problem with this kind of blurb is that it makes these books sound like a run-of-the-mill crime caper and really they are far from it. And this is another intelligent, well-plotted and excellently written book in a series which just keeps getting better.
