Shamefully not as well recognized as bestselling authors Ian Rankin
and Henning Mankell
, John Harvey easily ranks alongside these writers as a master of the modern police procedural. With his new series — Flesh and Blood
being the starting point — Harvey enmeshes the reader into his world, providing complex characterization and an urgent and startling plot. This is mystery writing of the highest caliber, an emotionally and intellectually absorbing novel that will keep you up all night.
