Read full description of the books:
I have read several books in the Charlie Resnick series and have truly enjoyed them. But I had never read the very first one until now. It was disappointing although it may have been because as the series progressed, the major characters were fully developed and Harvey's writing improved.
There is a lot going on in this story which should have made it a good read but it just didn't come together. The premise was good.......lonely women writing to the personal column in the local newspaper and ending up murdered.........but there didn't seem to be any cohesion to the narrative. It wandered along until the rather ambiguous ending and that was it. Certainly not one of Harvey's best by any means but I guess it was good enough to give birth to what is now a successful series.

John Harvey (born 21 December 1938 in London) is a British author of crime fiction most famous for his series of jazz-influenced Charlie Resnick novels, based in the City of Nottingham. Harvey has also published over 90 books under various names, and has worked on scripts for TV and radio. He also ran Slow Dancer Press from 1977 to 1999 publishing poetry. The first Resnick novel, Lonely Hearts, was published in 1989, and was named by The Times as one of the 100 Greatest Crime Novels of the Century. Harvey brought the series to an end in 1998 with Last Rites, though Resnick has since made peripheral appearances in Harvey's new Frank Elder series. The protagonist Elder is a retired detective who now lives, as Harvey briefly did, in Cornwall. The first novel in this series, Flesh and Blood, won Harvey the Crime Writers' Association Silver Dagger in 2004, an accolade many crime fiction critics thought long overdue. In 2007 he was awarded the Diamond Dagger for a Lifetime's Contribution to the genre. On 14th July 2009 he received an honorary degree (Doctor of Letters) from the University of Nottingham in recognition of his literary eminence and his associations with both the University and Nottingham (particularly in the Charlie Resnick novels). He is also a big Notts County fan.
