A topical and amusing police procedural,
This review is from: The Circus (An Inspector Carlyle Novel) (Kindle Edition)
I've read the previous Carlyle yarns and enjoyed them. No change here. The characters are believable and interesting. I find it attractive that the author allows his prejudices full reign through his characters and the plot. The plot is topical and is Mr Craig's take on what lies behind recent London headlines. So, an excellent, pacy read and a refreshing escape from anodyne PC wooden characters. The crooks are evil, the cops are not much better, moral ambiguity everywhere except with our shabby hero. Don't miss it.
