About this title


"You scuttering little bastard! What d'you think you're doing?"
Norma Snape knew damn well what her youngest was doing. Caught with her purse in his hand, the last of her money clutched between his fingers, Nicky Snape was adding to a long list of petty crimes and misdemeanors. But before she could reach him, Nicky was out the door, quickstepping across the rubble-strewn yard, waving the bills as he disappeared down the alley and into the street.
Doris Netherfield was cradling her husband, still trying to shield him as the intruder brought the iron bar down like a club, smashing Doris's skull as if it were a piece of overripe fruit, turning a simple job of breaking and entering into a question of murder.
Nicky had scrubbed everywhere, and still the water in the bowl ran red. "Who'd have thought the old girl had as much blood in her?" he whispered to himself over the sound of the running water.
It wasn't the first time the cops had paid a call on the Snape household. For Nicky, this time it was no petty crime or misdemeanor.
The call came two days after they had put him in custody, at a little before 6 A.M. Nicky Snape had been found hanging from the shower in the children's home where he was being held.
Nicky had just turned fifteen.


In a deeply-textured novel reminiscent of Lynda LaPlante's popular Prime Suspect, John Harvey probes the seamy underside of urban England. A Nottinghamshire police force must move quickly to understand the links between seemingly- unrelated deaths; in the background, the life of a working-class family is changed irrevocably.

Store Description

The books listed on ABE are not always available in our stores. Please do not call our store locations for these items. With 3 stores less than 1 hour outside the DC/Metropolitan area (1 in Gaithersburg, 1 in Frederick and 1 in Hagerstown, MD), we have the largest selection of books in the tri-state area. Wonder Book and Video has been in business since 1980 and online since 1997. We have over 1 Million books for sale on our website and another 1 Million books for sale in our 3 locations. We have a very active online inventory and as such, we can receive multiple orders for the same item. We fill those orders on a first come first serve basis, but will refund promptly any items that are out of stock. Since 1980 it has always been about the books. ALL kinds of books from 95 cent children's paperbacks to five figure rare and collectibles. A merging of the old and new is where we started, and it is where we are today. Our retail stores have always been places where a reader can rush in looking for a title needed for a term paper that is due the next day, or where bibliophiles can get lost "in the stacks" for as long as they wish. In 2002 USAToday recognized us as "1 of 10 Great Old Bookstores", and we have been featured in numerous other newspaper and TV stories including Washington Post and CSpan. Members ABAA, ILAB.
