    In my ongoing quest to finally read books that have been sitting on my shelf for 15 years, I grabbed this the other day and dove in I must have picked this up during acquisitive binge of British crime fiction, since it s about a private detective in York and his curious assortment of helpers About twenty pages in it seemed like there was quite a lot of backstory to the characters, and that s when I checked and discovered that it s the third book in what was a six book series featuring the det In my ongoing quest to finally read books that have been sitting on my shelf for 15 years, I grabbed this the other day and dove in I must have picked this up during acquisitive binge of British crime fiction, since it s about a private detective in York and his curious assortment of helpers About twenty pages in it seemed like there was quite a lot of backstory to the characters, and that s when I checked and discovered that it s the third book in what was a six book series featuring the detective I didn t stop to seek out books one and two, but it s certainly a series that should be read in order, as events from past books crop up as key subplots here.In broad terms, the story is about a nasty pedophile ring and the two steroid monsters who act as their enforcers The detective is hired to look into the unsolved murder of a young boy, and is also asked to help a woman whose ex husband was recently murdered The two cases naturally dovetail and take him into the path of the pedophiles It s pretty clear that the author is seeking to create a hard boiled seedy counterpoint to York s touristy historic facade That s all well and good, however, the villains of the story are just a bit too extreme for my taste, and their excesses were too over the top for me A good portion of the story is given over to the detective s personal life, and that of his workers, which gives it a littledepth than the typical crime novels They are all damaged people, come together under his umbrella, and I could see how that kind of quasi family would be nice to follow across all six books However, the central storyline wasn t compelling enough to push me to track down the rest of the series

    Humorous, honest and at times brutal.
