Hennessey and Yellich are looking for a Mr Big - A corpse is discovered in the middle of the city of York. Male; no identification. Shot. And tortured before his murder. A professional hit, by the look of it. Gradually people talk; hints are dropped; and trails appear all leading to a man with no record and who has never been inside a police station. But the police know him he's connected to another unexplained death. And another. And a few more.

About the Author:

Peter Turnbull was born and raised in Yorkshire, England. He has had a variety of jobs--in a former incarnation he was a social worker for twenty-three years, an occupation he gave up to become a full-time writer. ""Fear of Drowning"" is his twelfth novel.

From Booklist:

A man's body is found in a park in York. It looks like a gangland-style hit to Yorkshire police detectives Hennessey and Yellich. They learn that the victim was Gary "Hammer" Sledge, one of the infamous Sledge family who "run" the tough Tang Hall council estate. No one wants to upset the Sledges, so the coppers figure whoever killed Gary must have had a powerful motive. In short order, they arrest five suspects, but that's just the tip of the iceberg. The suspects were hired by someone who was hired by someone, but no one seems to know the identity of the mastermind who ordered the hit. The plot may be dark and violent and the villains nasty, but Turnbull softens the hard edge by offering very human glimpses of the detectives' personal lives. Recommend this one to fans of John Harvey and Ian Rankin. Emily Melton
