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 David Peace, Simon Kernick and Jake Arnott.

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.

Reviews

A pitch-perfect portrait of contemporary London and a beguiling bastard of a hero -- Val McDermid Makes the capital as eerie as Le Carre's Berlin Evening Standard Relentless...explosive Mail on Sunday Want a readable yet beautifully crafted thriller with original characterisation, fabulous plot and superb pacing? Tick, tick, tick. Deep Shelter will keep you guessing and turning pages right the way through. Ham & High Heaven, I'm in heaven... in fact, I'm in Hampstead, where Detective Nick Belsey is based, and he's the coolest cop you'll have come across in ages. London through his eyes is as atmospheric as a drawing by Gustave Dore... This demands to be read before the television adaptation. -- Kate Saunders Saga Magazine
