Ash & Bone (Frank Elder Mysteries)
by John Harvey, a review from Powells.com by Georgie Lewis.
"The joy of finding a damn good mystery author I haven't read before, who has a nice, hefty backlist, is, to me, akin to finding a vintage Chanel purse in a thrift store. It happened several years ago when I discovered British crime novelist John Harvey, about eight books into his Charlie Resnick series. The older books were sometimes hard to locate in the States, and I would celebrate every copy, new or used, I could get my hands on." Read the entire Powells.com review.
