Synopsis

Beyond Reach by Graham Hurley

Past midnight, a horribly mutilated body is discovered on a road in Portsmouth, evidently killed in a hit and run. There are no witnesses - and few regrets. Why? Because the victim had been terrorising an entire estate. DI Joe Faraday unpicks the dead man's life, uncovering a world of hurt that defies description. Ex-cop Paul Winter, meanwhile, has been sucked into even deeper water. Drug lord Bazza Mackenzie's married daughter is having an affair ...with a high ranking detective. And it's Winter's job to rein her in. Violence, drug-running, kidnap, murder. Both Faraday and Winter must battle against near-impossible odds. But whose interests will justice finally serve?

Reviews

Intensely emotional and compulsively readable throughout * TELEGRAPH & ARGUS * This is another quality instalment in a series that must rank as one of the best in the genre of modern police procedurals. * SOUTH WALES ARGUS *

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.
