Cold in Hand continues that legacy as Harvey brings back beloved detective Charles Resnick and once again paints a realistic portrait of the bleak situation facing Britain's police departments-not to mention its cities-today. The author's talent fortunately extends beyond a mere familiarity with the crime world and into his carefully crafted characters. Harvey's understated prose and sensibility do wonders to show readers what Resnick and Kellogg experience as they traverse this dystopian vision of Nottingham.

John Harvey back into the glass. Then, with a sudden jerk of memory, she reached her hand into the space beside her and, to her relief, touched nothing but tousled, empty sheets. Thank Christ for that! Slowly, with extravagant care, she lowered herself back down against the damp pillow, damp and rank from her own sweat. Seven minutes past five

So when John Harvey presents this scarifying picture of Britain in his latest novel, attention must be paid. This worrying (but trenchant) book may be a disquieting experience for readers, as liberal shibboleths are toppled. With unflinching rigour, Harvey stripmines this dystopian society and renders its horrors with his customary skill. Policewoman Lynn Kellogg is caught between brawling street gangs, and unwisely attempts to defuse the situation. The result is mayhem; one young girl is mutilated, another lies dead, shot by a young man wearing a bandanna. The policewoman herself is shot and.

It's Valentine's Day, and a dispute between rival gangs leaves a teenage girl dead. Detective Inspector Charlie Resnick, nearing retirement, is hauled back to the front line to help deal with the fallout. But when the dead girl's father seeks to lay the blame on Resnick's partner, DI Lynn Kellogg, Resnick finds the line between the personal and the professional dangerously blurred. Meanwhile, the Serious and Organised Crime Agency starts to show a keen interest in one of Kellogg's murder cases--a case the agency is convinced is linked to international gun running and people trafficking. Soon Kellogg is drawn into a web of deceit and betrayal that puts both her and Resnick in mortal danger.

Ah the 11th of the Charlie Resnick series. We find Charlie happily involved with live-in partner DI Lynn Kellogg. Lynn becomes involved in a shooting incident between youths. A young girl is killed and Lynn is shot.

Charlie gets pulled into the investigation of the girl's murder. Meanwhile, the girl's father loudly blames Lynn for the death of his daughter. Lynn then gets involved in investigating the murder of a woman and her daughter. This leads her to some bad Serbian criminals, but before she can pin it on anyone, something devastating happens.

This is a very good book. Well written, edited and steady paced, we are entranced with following these cases.

I am very much looking forward to reading the 12th - and last - Charlie Resnick book

I had previously read and enjoyed the Charlie Resnik series by John Harvey and own all the books in hardback. I thought the series was over. Thus I was very happy to see a new entry after many years. In a series, I feel the author and the readers have a certain understanding. Events that might be OK in a stand-alone novel may violate the trust a loyal follower has in a series. Traumatic events early in a series such as the death of Joanna Brady's trooper husband in the J.A. Jance series may be a necessary prequel to future developments; that is not so for a mature series such as this. The gratuitous violence in the present book was not necessary for the plot in any way. It did not contribute clues to the solving of any of the crimes to be solved. Given the age of the main character, it seems unlikely that future plot lines required this development. Therefore, I feel my trust in this author has been misplaced. I did not expect a detective "cozy" when I bought this book, The Resnik novels have been gritty and tough. But I think John Harvey went out of his way to disappoint his loyal readers. Perhaps Mr. Harvey's current views are those of one of the peripheral detectives in the current book who sees hopeless, meaningless ever-increasing crime and violence everywhere. I won't be purchasing his next book lest someone break into Resnik's house and torture all his cats to death.

Very competently written (of course it is, it's Harvey!).
Perhaps not as smooth as usual, the action has perhaps a tendency to run out of energy in places. But all in all a nice tale about the tirening policeman and his environment - with all the usual trimmings and sentiments.
Absolutely worth an evening with the book - and perhaps a kettle of your favourite brew.

I love Charlie Resnick and was so sad that he may be retiring. This was a very mournful episode. I wish the series would never end.

A GREAT READ ON A WET AND COLD DAY. I LOVE CHARLIE RESNICK AND ANYONE WHO STICKS WITH THE SERIES WILL LOVE HIM, TOO. HOPEFULLY, THIS IS NOT THE LAST.

This book was one of the best, I had Trouble putting this down, each page kept me wanting more. The end will surprise you.
First Sentence: It was the curious time, neither day nor night, not even properly dusk, the light beginning to shorten and fade, the headlights of a few overcautious drivers raising a quick, pale reflection from the slick surface of the road, the main route back into the city.

DI Lynn Kellogg has been shot while breaking up a fight between girls in two rival gangs. One girl was badly injured, while the other girl, attacking Lynn at the time, was mortally shot. Lynn's lover, DI Charlie Resnick is nearly retired but brought in to lead the investigation for the shooter while the dead girl's father blames Lynn.

Meanwhile, once Lynn is back at work, she is investigating a case which links to one being worked by the Serious and Organized Crime Agency. The case goes from dangerous to tragic.

I was so excited to see a new Charlie Resnick book and I wasn't disappointed. Harvey knows how to tell a story. He draws you in, gets you involved in the characters and the plot, hits your emotions, builds the suspense and brings it to resolution in a satisfying, realistic manner.

Charlie is a great character and Harvey gives you a real feel for his life and the people in it. Lynn, being much younger than Charlie, is a perfect balance and foil for him.

I've read all the books in the series but, with each new one, I want to go back and read them again. Not because I don't remember them, but because they are so good and this was the icing on the cake. I hope this isn't the last time we see Charlie Resnick.
