Read full description of the books:
Well enough written; two parallel cases of men dead or missing, presumed dead. In one case the police haul in the usual suspects in Portsmouth, even though they are pretty sure it isn't the drug dealer's style. A man was left chained to a train track in a tunnel, and the parallels are also clear to the method of killing discovered in the second case.
Joe Faraday is more clean cut and I was sad to read about him knowing what happens in a later book. I still don't believe that incident, given how much this man enjoys birdwatching and his own company.
Paul Winter is an older and less politically correct copper, I don't much like him but there is an equivalent in just about every police series. He has recently survived a brain tumour operation. Here he rather stupidly denies having talked with Baz McKenzie the drug lord when half the town saw them sit down in a restaurant. Again, I know where this leads, and could see the set up coming. Winter spends more time working alone than seems feasible but we do learn about the co-operation given by phone firms.
Not for the squeamish, but we know the difference between police procedurals and village cosies. I found the many names get thrown at us rather as labels and if you put the book down for a few days you will be confused as to which character is part of which investigation and why. I presume the author works with name cards on a corkboard, or similar, as he writes.
This is an unbiased review.

Read information about the authorGraham Hurley was born November, 1946 in Clacton-on-Sea, Essex. His seaside childhood was punctuated by football, swimming, afternoons on the dodgems, run-ins with the police, multiple raids on the local library - plus near-total immersion in English post-war movies.
Directed and produced documentaries for ITV through two decades, winning a number of national and international awards. Launched a writing career on the back of a six-part drama commission for ITV: "Rules of Engagement". Left TV and became full time writer in 1991.
Authored nine stand-alone thrillers plus "Airshow", a fly-on-the-wall novel-length piece of reportage, before accepting Orion invitation to become a crime writer. Drew gleefully on home-town Portsmouth (“Pompey”) as the basis for an on-going series featuring D/I Joe Faraday and D/C Paul Winter.
Contributed five years of personal columns to the Portsmouth News, penned a number of plays and dramatic monologues for local production (including the city’s millenium celebration, "Willoughby and Son"), then decamped to Devon for a more considered take on Pompey low-life.
The Faraday series came to an end after 12 books. Healthy sales at home and abroad, plus mega-successful French TV adaptations, tempted Orion to commission a spin-off series, set in the West Country, featuring D/S Jimmy Suttle.
Launch title - "Western Approaches" - published 2012. "Touching Distance" to hit the bookstores next month (21st November).
Has recently self-published a number of titles on Kindle including "Strictly No Flowers" (a dark take on crime fiction), "Estuary" (a deeply personal memoir) and "Backstory" (how and why he came to write the Faraday series).
Married to the delectable Lin. Three grown-up sons (Tom, Jack and Woody). Plus corking grandson Dylan.
