“Harvey’s series about Charlie Resnick, the jazz-loving, melancholy cop in provincial Nottingham, England, has long been one of the finest police procedural series around.”—Publishers Weekly
“The characters in John Harvey’s urban crime novels are so defiantly alive and unruly that they put these British police procedurals on a shelf by themselves.”—Marilyn Stasio, The New York Times Book Review
“Harvey reminds me of Graham Greene, a stylist who tells you everything you need to know while keeping the prose clean and simple. It’s a very realistic style that draws you into the story without the writer getting in the way.”—Elmore Leonard
“Charlie Resnick is one of the most fully realized characters in modern crime fiction.”—Sue Grafton
The first major case for Charlie Resnick and his team concerns a number of increasingly serious attacks on women who have been using the “Lonely Hearts” column of the local newspaper. Simultaneously, Resnick becomes involved with Rachel Chaplin, the social worker assigned to a family caught up in allegations of child abuse.
John Harvey’s Charlie Resnick is British crime fiction’s best-kept secret. In the ten novels Harvey wrote about Resnick before ending the series, he established his character as a believable ordinary policeman who investigated ordinary, everyday crime, rooted in the socioeconomic plight and drab lives of many people in the city of Nottingham.
Bloody Brits Press will reissue the entire Inspector Charles Resnick series in the next three seasons.

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.
