“An unconventional and spicy tour de force. . . . James is terrific.” ―Frances Fyfield

Fear grips the drug underworld after two principals in the trade are murdered, and even ACC Desmond Iles is under a cloud of suspicion. Now the chief players start closing in on a fortune, while Iles, Chief Constable Mark Lane, and Detective Chief Superintendent Colin Harpur plunge into their own fierce struggle to control the game.

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.

Review:

An unconventional and spicy tour de force... . James is terrific. -- Frances Fyfield

Hard-edged narratives that leave readers gasping and flinching.... A ferociously poetic voice. -- The Times [London]

There is not a nuance of the police-criminal interface that James does not convey effortlessly and with total conviction. -- Marcel Berlins, The Times [London

[A] terrific series.... Get these books; settle into peril and chaos. -- Bloomsbury Review
