Shirley Peters is dead. Murdered. And her rejected boyfriend is the obvious prime suspect. But then another woman is murdered and suddenly there appears to be too many connections between these seemingly unrelated crimes. Detective Inspector Resnick is sure that the two murders are the work of one sadistic killer — two lonely hearts broken by one maniac. And it’s up to Resnick to put the record straight — and put the killer where he belongs.

John Harvey is the author of the richly-praised sequence of ten Charlie Resnick novels, the first of which, Lonely Hearts, was named by The Times as one of the ‘100 Best Crime Novels of the Century.’ In 2004, William Heinemann published Flesh and Blood, the first novel featuring retired Detective Inspector Frank Elder. He is also a poet, dramatist and occasional broadcaster.From Publishers Weekly:
British detective Charlie Resnick--middle-aged, overweight, divorced and disillusioned--investigates the murders of two women who shared nothing except their use of the local paper's lonely-hearts column to meet men. "Harvey introduces an appealing and memorable new series character in this, his seventh mystery," commented PW .
