The final DI Charlie Resnick novel from the Cartier Diamond Dagger winner and Sunday Times bestselling author of Cold in Hand Thirty years ago the Miners' Strike threatened to tear the country apart turning neighbour against neighbour husband against wife father ag ”So much had changed; so much remained the same” This book had stared at me accusingly for many years I’d pretend not to notice but was well aware that I was ignoring it I simply was not ready to say goodbye to Charlie Resnick It’s been an absolute pleasure reading this Nottingham based series John Harvey’s writing style is such that it takes you in and captures your attention No sooner have you started reading than you find yourself at the last page of the book Realistic well thought out police procedurals with well fleshed out characters in real life settings What could a reader ask for? Jazz loving coffee drinking gourmet sandwich creating Charlie is now semi retired working a few days a week as a police consultant He’s asked to help with the cold case of a skeleton that has been unearthed on a building site It appears to have been buried in 1984 at the height of the miner’s strikeThe story moves seamlessly between the turmoil and upheaval of the mid 1980s and the present time The miner’s strike tore communities and families apart which Charlie witnessed first hand having been in the police force at the time The disuiet of those times is handled well by telling both sides of the story for those both for and against the strikeIn Charlie I feel a sense of inevitability Being a policeman he would have seen it all Human nature cannot be changed There will always be the push and pull of needs and wants For anyone looking for a decent read of well written police procedurals you cannot go past this series In fact in one of these lifetimes I’d very much like to re read them from start to finishI’m so sorry to say goodbye to such a humane empathetic likeable character But it’s time for Charlie to hand over the baton and put his feet up I’d like to think that Charlie is out there somewhere listening to a rare recording of a jazz classic enjoying a coffee and watching the world go by
