No Lovelier Death Synopsis

A judge and his wife go away on holiday and lose everything. While they are away their 17-year-old daughter throws a party, it goes out of control, there is a riot and she and her boyfriend are murdered. A massive police investigation, stretching the force's rescources to breaking point, is launched with D/I Faraday in charge.

The judge's neighbour who has promised to keep a eye on things while he was away feels he owes the man a debt. And he has his own reputation to think about. He wants the name of the killer. The neighbour? Bazza McKenzie, a man who made his fortune supplying the city with class-A drugs. The man in his organisation charged with getting the job done? Ex D/C Paul Winter.

In Graham Hurley's gripping new crime thriller Faraday and Winter are finally on the opposite sides of the law. But they're both after the same thing. Paul Winter is treading his most dangerous line yet.

 

No Lovelier Death Press Reviews

'Another gripping chronicle of crime in Portsmouth... A vivid portrait of a decadent society in which even the local criminal thinks crime is out of control' LITERARY REVIEW
 
'Portsmouth has provided rich pickings for this British author with its history and pride... Joe Faraday's ninth outing opens like an episode of Skins but Hurley expands to explore our need to belong.' ESQUIRE
 
'It's a mystery in itself why Hurley is not better known as a crime writer. His Joe Faraday police procedural novels are spot on - well-written and plotted, utterly convincing and really exciting... An excellent and complex crime novel' DAILY MAIL
 
'Faraday's gloom was a nice way to set off the decline of modern Britain, and Portsmouth a perfect petri dish of a setting for Hurley's perceptive eye, sharp ear, and sensitivity to all his characters... To my mind, this is the most undervalued of all the British police series, its arguably the most consistently interesting , and it's certainly as entertaining as any.' CRIME TIME
 
'Hurley never disappoints and here proves his standing as one of the UK's finest crime novelists.'
INDEPENDENT ON SUNDAY
