Sarah Broadhurst's view...

A really gripping page-turner with totally unexpected resolutions. Hurley just gets better with each book. This one involves two separate cases being investigated by two friends, DI Joe Faraday who plays by the book, and DC Paul Winter who is not averse to stepping over the lines. The solving of the two crimes is both bizarre and disturbing with Faraday and Winter providing their own solutions! It’s terrific stuff.

Comparison: Peter James, Peter Robinson, John Harvey.

Maxim Jakubowski, a Lovereading expert voice says: Joe Faraday; the investigations of a Portsmouth cop and a fascinating look into crime on the British coast. If you like Ian Rankin’s Rebus, this should be your next step. NO LOVELIER DEATH is the 9th book in the Faraday series.

Synopsis

One Under by Graham Hurley

A man is chained inside a tunnel and then dismembered and scattered along the tracks by the early morning train from Portsmouth to London. The beginning of DI Joe Faraday's most gruesome case yet, but is it a bizarre suicide or the cruellest of murders?

Checking the list of missing persons as the police attempt to identify the body DC Winter comes across a missing man, someone who stepped out of his ordered life with no hint of leaving. He's not the man in the tunnel, he's simply disappeared. The only person he can find who knew him works in the city morgue...

ONE UNDER: two crimes, two tangles of emotions and thwarted love, one brilliant microcosm of Britain today.

Reviews

'There is no-one writing better police procedurals today than Graham Hurley. He gives an almost cinematic quality to the narrative, creating a convincing sense of watching a team of real detectives at work' Suzanna Yager, SUNDAY TELEGRAPH

'Hurley is one of the great talents of British police procedurals. Every book he delivers is better than the last and ONE UNDER is no exception. I can't recommend it highly enough'
Mark Timlin , INDEPENDENT ON SUNDAY

'A first-rate thriller, which is graphic and gritty and will hit you right in the stomach from the very start.' PETERBOROUGH EVENING TELEGRAPH

A Q & A with Graham Hurley

Who’s your favourite author?
The Alan Furst of The Polish Officer and The World at Night.

Where do you live? And why?
Portsmouth. Because so many people ask me why.

What’s the greatest influence on your writing?
Lin Rowden.

What is your philosophy for life?
Check the tide tables and watch for eddies.

Have you had any formal tuition in creative writing? If so, where and what? Did you find it useful?
BA/MA Cambridge University (English – no help at all). No formal tuition in creative writing except a pathological nosiness and a fascination with story. Profound doubts about collective literary endeavour. Why? Because, in the end, writing is a solitary business.

Did you always want to be an author? If not, what did you originally want to be and when and why did you change your mind?
Yes. And like most authors, I’m not sure why. But – emphatically – yes.

Who do you most admire and why?
My mum (seriously). Because she’s never failed to make the very best of an occasionally dodgy hand. Huge fortitude.

What jobs did you have before you started writing?
Ice cream salesman, deckchair attendant, lifeguard, prep school teacher (scripture and cricket), Radio Victory reporter, TV promotion scriptwriter, TV researcher, TV documentary director/producer, Oz TV cop series writer.

If your house was burning down what would you save?
Lin Rowden, the cats, a framed photo of the Otter estuary, me.

What do you do when you are not writing? How do you relax? What are your hobbies?
Sailing, cycling, nosing around, tussling with French, dreaming of the day Tony Blair resigns.
