Sarah Broadhurst's view...
The dark, gritty underbelly of London is split open to let the bloody entrails of undercover policemen, informers, drugs, big money, gun battles and revenge spill forth. This is noir urban crime, tough stuff. It’s his second with number three coming into hardback at the same time, A Good Day, and number one, The Murder Exchange, not to be missed.
Comparison: Reginald Hill, Jake Arnott, Ian Rankin.
Similar this month: Peter Robinson, Susan Hill.
The Crime Trade by Simon Kernick
When Operation Surgical Strike goes horribly wrong, suspicion quickly falls on one of the officers involved: ‘Stegs’ Jenner. No ordinary undercover cop, Stegs is a man who’s always lived life on the edge.Now he decides to go it alone.
DI John Gallan and his partner DS Tina Boyd are part of the subsequent investigation that will take them to the heart of one of London’s most notorious criminal gangs. What they cannot know is that they’ve also embarked on a collision path that will lead one of them straight into the rifle sights of the enemy.
