When a man is found in the middle of Alfreton Road in the early hours one Sunday morning, stark naked and bleeding heavily from a chest wound, he is the latest in a series of viscous attacks on men.

I found it boring and uninspired
Well, I love Charlie Resnick. Love his personality, his cats and his sandwiches. This book wasn't that great but I was a bit surprised by the ending.

I've checked my library for the other Resnick books, but all that's left are the short stories.
Stars: 2.5

Grappig verhaal; voor een thriller niet echt spannend. De zaken die spelen hebben wel potentie, maar door de vele namen en de niet al te onverwachte onthullingen komt het niet helemaal over, helaas. Misschien komt dat ook doordat het boek al wat ouder is en omdat deze thriller er eentje uit een reeks is en ik die verder niet heb gelezen. Al nodigt dit boek niet echt uit om de rest ook te lezen. Jammer want de achterkant klonk zo veel belovend =/
You have to really enjoy the Charlie Resnick character. He is likable and low key. In this book the low key part goes to an all-time low. While mixing 3 different cases in one book you still have time for a quick nap.

Harvey's two series (Frank Elder and Charlie Resnick) are worth investigating if you like police procedurals with a heavy hint of the psychology of the character. He delves into the lives of his detective, their friends and family, as he builds a picture of the victim's circle. Great reading.
I liked this book better than Cold Light. The story, IMO, had more red herrings and the mystery of it all continued to the very end.
Another solid read in the Resnick series, not as gritty as Rebus but still good.
