Maxim Jakubowski's Book of the Month.

Detective Nick Belsey, of Hampstead CID was first introduced in The Hollow Man. A fascinating crooked cop who manages to survive against all the odds in a London that is no less tainted. In his 2nd appearance, we now finally see his dogged talent as an actual sleuth in action when he stumbles across a car chase, provokes the abduction of a potential girlfriend and his staff sergeant and is drawn into a powerfully-evoked network of underground tunnels below North London and the City that conceal a huge plot whose roots lie in the past and the shadowy world of intelligence. Squirm with delight as you follow Nick wriggle his way out of impossible situations and fight the forces of evil by never following the rules. Huge fun.

If you like Oliver Harris you might also like to read books by Jake Arnott, Simon Kernick and David Peace.

Synopsis

Deep Shelter by Oliver Harris

London is steaming under a summer of filthy heat and sudden storms - and Detective Nick Belsey, of Hampstead CID, is trying to stay out of trouble. But then somebody sets him a riddle. How does a man walk into a dead-end alley and never come out? How does he disappear? And then reappear - to snatch a girl, to dump a body beneath a London skyscraper, to send Belsey a package of human hair. The answer lies underground, where the secrets degenerating beneath the city's sickly glitter are about to see the light of day.
