9780099585657: Darkness and Light: (Frank Elder)

The third DI Frank Elder novel, from the master of British crime writing.

A phone call intrudes on retired Detective Inspector Frank Elder’s solitary life in Cornwall. It’s his estranged wife and she needs a favour. A friend’s sister, Claire Meecham, an unassuming widow in her fifties, has gone missing.

Elder agrees to return to Nottingham to try and track her down. Then Claire is found, dead. The killer has arranged her body meticulously, almost lovingly, forcing Elder to remember another dead woman, arranged in an almost identical way. It was his first case with the Serious Crimes Unit. His first case and never solved.

It’s clear to Elder that this is the work of the same unbalanced individual and, to find the killer, Elder must shine a light into the darkest recesses of human behaviour, the dark and twisted recesses of a disturbed human mind.

Review:

"A really seductive trip into the concealed hinterlands of sexuality" (Christopher Brookmyre)

"With Frank Elder's third outing, John Harvey performs the hat-trick. Another fine story which engages at all levels. If Harvey gets any better, the rest of us may have to kill him." (Reginald Hill)

" Darkness and Light is... crime fiction at its best" ( George Pelecanos)

"A classy novel from one of our finest crime writers" ( Sunday Telegraph)

From the Publisher:

'John Harvey is one of my favourite authors. Whenever he has a new book out it goes straight to the top of my reading list.' - Peter Robinson
