About the Author:

2007 Diamond Dagger award winner John Harvey has over 100 books in print. He will be the international guest at Bounchercon in October (2008). He lives in London.

From Publishers Weekly:

In his third outing, after Rough Treatment , tough and reflective British copper Charlie Resnick investigates a series of brutal attacks on medical personnel at a large Midlands hospital. The perpetrator of the crimes exhibits an appalling ability to maim his victims in a manner that, besides traumatizing them, will destroy their careers. A promising young surgeon is dealt a crippling assault to his leg and hand; a male nurse, whose parents consider his work not quite "manly," is almost emasculated. The assailant's psychological insight and understanding of anatomy suggest that he belongs to the medical commuity. As Resnick acquaints himself with the lives of the victims, their families and lovers, he discovers a level of desperation where reality is denied and self-worth destroyed. Credibly portrayed policewomen add further interest to this superior novel in which suspense derives not only from questions about what will happen next, but from Harvey's talent in creating a sense of wonder about the depths of human character.
