Darkness, Darkness by John Harvey

Thirty years ago, the Miners’ Strike threatened to tear the country apart, turning neighbour against neighbour, husband against wife, father against son – enmities which smoulder still.

Resnick, recently made up to inspector, and ambivalent at best about some of the police tactics, had run an information gathering unit at the heart of the dispute.

Now, in virtual retirement, and still grieving over the violent death of his former partner, the discovery of the body of a young woman who disappeared during the Strike brings Resnick back to the front line to assist in the investigation into the woman’s murder – forcing him to confront his past in what will assuredly be his last case.

This gripping tale represents an excellent conclusion to the wonderful series of Nottingham-based Resnick crime novels. Marking 30 years since the miners’ strike this compelling novel brings back many of the divisive issues from that era. As a murder mystery it really is outstanding and sees Charlie Resnick bow out in some style.
