LoveReading View on The Hollow Man

A Maxim Jakubowski Great Male Crime Sleuth.

Not just another London cop with a troubled morality, Belsey whose patch is the unlikely one of affluent Hampstead, is a man very much on the skids: dishonest as they come, crooked to the nth degree and determined to survive at all cost. Somehow you end up cheering for him to overcome the terrible odds in this initial tale in which, on the point of being sacked, he comes across a corpse in a rich mansion and determines to impersonate the dead Russian oligarch and appropriate his fortune. If only it were that easy. First in a new series.

The Hollow Man Synopsis

Detective Nick Belsey is broke. Now it looks like he's out of a job - something happened last night, something with the boss' wife...At dawn, on what should be the last day of Belsey's career, Hampstead CID is ghostly quiet. Belsey checks the overnight files. There's a missing-person report. But this one's different. It's on the Bishops Avenue, London's richest street. Belsey sees a scam, an escape route. But he hasn't got there first. Furiously paced and thrillingly plotted, The Hollow Man is a black love letter to London's shadow world. It marks the beginning of a seductive contemporary detective series, and the arrival of a future master of the genre.
