A darkly funny, moving and original novel about a man coming to terms with the corruption around him and the conscience within.
Harry Fielding is a shabby, solitary, but basically cheerful sort, living in a seamy flat in London and subsisting on a diet of gin and pre-packed airline meals in unmarked silver containers. He also works for MI5. Surveillance, protection, the occasional rough-and-tumble - just enough to keep body and soul together. However, when Harry witnesses Lisa, his next-door neighbour, killing and burying her sister's violent husband, he begins to lose his appetite...

Really good read, unexpected and intelligent,Review:
"As flawed heroes go, Harry Fielding must rank as among the best of them" ( Irish Independent)
"An exciting, literate thriller" ( Sunday Times)
"As a modern moral tale, The Crooked Man works wonderfully... As a thriller it has more twists and turns than an offficial statement by a government spokesperson. Forget those dime-a-dozen airport thrillers, this is a gripping page-turner with pages worth turning" ( Sunday Tribune)
