9780099585671: Rough Treatment: (Resnick 2)

A series of house break-ins that are too neat to be anything but inside jobs; a missing kilo of coke; a thief with some very nasty habits and another with too tender a heart . . . all add up to John Harvey's second complex and fast-paced police procedural featuring Charlie Resnick.

About the Author:

John Harvey is the author of the richly-praised sequence of ten Charlie Resnick novels, the first of which, Lonely Hearts, was named by The Times as one of the ‘100 Best Crime Novels of the Century.’ In 2004, William Heinemann published Flesh and Blood, the first novel featuring retired Detective Inspector Frank Elder. He is also a poet, dramatist and occasional broadcaster.

From Publishers Weekly:

Inspector Charlie Resnick, first encountered in Lonely Hearts , counters a drug-trafficking ring and suspected police corruption in this well-executed and very human British police procedural, set in an unnamed Midlands city. When Jerzy Grabianski and Trevor Grice burglarize TV director Harold Roy's house, they find his bored wife, Maria, who becomes attracted to Jerzy. Among the valuables the thieves snatch is a kilo of cocaine which Roy, dabbling in drugs and on the verge of losing his job, has been keeping for a dealer acquaintance. Maria supplies a false description of the criminals, prompted by her interest in Jerzy, who returns to begin an affair and negotiate selling back the cocaine. Resnick concentrates heavily on the case, meanwhile contending with other crimes that include a possible Chinese feud. On the domestic front, the inspector attempts to sell his house because it holds unpleasant memories of his failed marriage, and the superintendent's daughter is arrested for shoplifting. Harvey's policemen are real people, some appealing, some not, and all suggestively portrayed.
