Graham Hurley's novels about Portsmouth, Faraday and Winter are absolutely spot on. He captures the spirit of the city and its environs - the Isle of Wight and parts of south east Hampshire - to a "T". His characters are realistic and his narratives are spell binding.
Ian Rankin, Michael Connelly eat your respective hearts out!
As you may have gathered, I highly recommend Graham Hurley's Faraday novels - buy the lot and start from the beginning!
The key to Hurley, as another reviewer pointed out, is the sense of place. My father was a cop in Portsmouth, and the atmosphere, the language, the description and the sense of sneering, striving desperation is spot-on.
Allied to this, Hurley's characters ring true, and he is prepared to leave a crime unsolved, something many others in the genre would do well to attempt.
Faraday, on the other hand, has to solve the reasons why a man's mangled body was found in a train tunnel. The way the author deals with the procedural aspects of police work is, as ever, excellent. Portsmouth has not improved during the life of these seven books but then, neither has my hown town. I've been hooked on these books since day one and now, reading the latest Lee Child book, it is interesting to compare the two very different styles of putting a crime mystery thriller on to paper. I like them both but I'm still looking forward to picking up a copy of 'The Price Of Darkness' as soon as I can.
This is not Agatha Christie however where by the end, at least, you know 'the goodies' from 'the baddies' and 'the baddies' get their just desserts. Life, alas is much more complicated than that. I won't spoil the end but you can feel it coming from a little way out, just like the train which the book title alludes to. I was hoping that I was misreading the signs. I wasn't, and for me the ending was satisyingly unsatisfactory - unsettling, just because I would have liked things to have worked out differently for all the protagonists.

Up to Hurley's high standard of story telling. As usual in this series, two stories in one book. You follow not only Faraday but also Winter. Hurley seems to be a master at this.Published on 5 April 2013 by KenW
