Nobody walks the thin line between cops and crooks better than Bill James, and his new book about randy British policeman Colin Harpur is one of the best in this beautifully written series. Jack Lamb, the wealthy art dealer who has given Harpur tips on upcoming crimes in previous stories, provides one here that results in the death of a particularly stupid robber. When the dead man's father vows revenge on both Lamb and Harpur, it sets off a series of public and private explosions that James relates with wonderfully understated excitement. Previous Harpur books in paperback include Astride a Grave, Club, and You'd Better Believe It.About the Author:
Bill James has been called "the Elmore Leonard of Britain's underworld" (Kirkus Reviews) and has been named a "Master of Crime" in a mystery roundup by the London Sunday Times, which said, "There is nothing else quite like this series of police procedurals. James is concerned with the dilemmas and difficulties of policing Britain's inner cities, and he addresses these in hard-edged narratives that leave readers gasping and flinching, praying the people in these stories never come to live in their streets." In addition to the Harpur and Iles series, James is the author of other mystery series and a book on Anthony Powell. He lives in Wales.
