Harvey plays it note perfect in a plot so solidly built you could

Literary Review *
If the title King of Crime is to go to the male writer who is at the summit of his form writing some of the best crime fiction on this side of the Atlantic, the crown is John Harvey's * The Times *
The inner city is brilliantly and chillingly drawn so that you can almost smell the wet concrete. Top marks * Spectator *
