As someone who has walked the streets of Nottingham on behalf of the local paper I enjoyed John Harvey's novel which located the story line in and around Nottingham. The main storyline tended to stretch the imagination a bit but despite this the plot was full of twists and turns although the final twist was signalled a bit early. The side issues and relationships were firmly rooted and highly believable. The main characters were interesting and well constructed and the overall quality of the writing was excellent. I'm off to get the third one in the series in the hope that it continues the excellent trend.

Having been a rather 'quick' (I skipped bits)reader I initially found John Harvey's books to be rather plodding, but now that I've just finished this book (my third Harvey book) I'm finding unexpected delights in the way he weaves a thread between the main characters' lives and creates new (in this case 'anti') heroes in the different books. They are starting to get to me and creating an interest in the lives that revolve around Resnick and Nottingham. I'm still an avid Rebus fan but Resnick seems to be less heroic and possibly more beievable as a character. As you have probably gathered I'm working my way through all the Resnick novels and have to say I'm looking forward to each new episode and learning to read more thoroughly to get the best out of these beautifully constructed stories.

Got wind of the John Harvey books through a local paper review and being a born and bred Nottingham man decided to take a look.

To be honest he's a damn good writer but this book seems a little far fetched. However well written and loving Charlie Resnick, jazz and cat lover, and I won't be put off by this slight dip in form.

Already on his next book and he's back to his best. Perseverance needed with this one.

"Rough Treatment" is actually sensitively written. Knowing Nottingham helps but the book stands alone as a good read anyway. The characters become real and you are taken into the world of crime and its detection as well as the private lives of the detectives. John Harvey deserves greater recognition than he has received if this book is anything to go by.

I enjoyed the characters, the plot and the pace of the story. I particularly liked Resnick as he did not seem to be as damaged as most fictional detectives. I have now read 4 of the series and enjoyed them all and I think it is significant that they were written in the 80s

The second book in one of the best British crime series. Resnick is a superb creation and his character is explored in this and the other books .

I like John Harvey but it annoys me that not only do the paperbacks contain spelling mistakes but so do the Kindle versions.
