4.0 out of 5 stars Better than 99% of the genre, but not perfect Sept. 11 1999
Format:Paperback
This book is so much better written than 99% of the genre that it seems a pity to criticize it. However... there is a problem. The author uses characters' consumer choices as little labels. One person eats a Linda McCartney meal, another listens to Lionel Ritchie. You can't help but feel that he is laughing at them. Not so Resnick who has impeccable taste. Near the end a bad character hops into bed with a Jeffrey Archer novel. It is then you realize that he is damned.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best of the Series Aug. 25 1999
By A. Ross
Format:Paperback
The fifth and strongest entry in Harvey's Charlie Resnick series is less sensational on the procedural side than previous outings, focusing on two separate sets of armed robberies. One set does a good job of portraying a bullying wayward youth and his aimless follower, while the other very high-end, hitting banks and armored cars, and is rooted in Resnick's past. Harvey effectively cuts back and forth between the present and 1981 in order to show the past events and characters. As usual, the private lives of the police squad is further developed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another page turner! Feb. 7 2014

John Harvey is a consistent 5 star author to me. His books are page turners - crime stories which appeal to me because he writes of events which are realistic and has at the centre a protagonist who is sympathetic and believable. I read a lot of books in this genre but few authors seem to be able to write well about those who commit the crimes and those who must stop them, John Harvey gets it right every book.
Personally I hope there are many more books to read about the policeman who has become one of my favourites.
