Synopses & Reviews
Poet and novelist John Harvey has been showered with praise since Holt introduced him to the American public in 1989. Now the early Charlie Resnick crime novels are being made available in handsome Owl Book editions.
"Operating somewhere between the police procedurals of P. D. James and the pyschological thrillers of Ruth Rendell, fellow Briton Harvey claims a compelling turf."--People
"The characters in Harvey's urban crime novels are so defiantly alive and unruly that they put these British police procedurals on a shelf all by themselves." --The New York Times Book Review
"Harvey writes better crime novels than anyone in the world. His books transcend genre." --The Denver Post
"Without question, Easy Meat is Harvey's best."--Jim Harrison
