Having read a few of this series previously this was a very welcome return to Charlie Priest and the crowd at Heckley nick.
As I was about halfway through , I remember thinking that this was my kind of book; an English police drama in an area that I know, a policeman who is happy with his lot who gets on with his colleagues and more importantly his superiors and whose wife accepts his strange hours of work.
There are murders, rapes, violence and drugs but the author doesnt wollow in needless detai...more
Really enjoyed this and glad I stayed with the series. I would recommend to anyone who like British police procedure and 'Englishness'.
If you like Peter Lovesy's Peter Diamond book, this series could well be for you.
A good read, unsure of the title's meaning in relation to the story though there are hints along the way. Will look for the next Charlie Priest book!

Typical Pawson - a police procedural with some gentle dry-ish humour, not much violence (though the reader is aware that it is always a possibility) and a beautiful end to the crime story component of the book, particularly to English readers who might know some of the locations involved (Humber Bridge and its environs, and the Ribblehead Viaduct, plus a final passing mention of Kielder Forest).
An agreeable English Police Procedural set in Yorkshire. The main character, DI Charlie Priest, is quite engaging with a gentle sense of humor and the plot churned along at a nice pace.
The plot seems to be built on too many coincidences. Also the main character is too flippant.
Another newish to me series, this is the third book and is still enjoyable.
