So Very Bad!,
This review is from: Bad Men (Kindle Edition)
I'm a long-time Guthrie fan. His writing has a quality that sets him above so many of the crime-writers of today. 'Hard Man' was always up there as one of my favourites by him - Slammer and Two-Way Split also taking their turn from time to time. Now I have to bring in 'Bad Men' to muddy the waters. Pearce is a fantastic character and here he goes against someone who is also a very hard man (as well as being slightly insane). Pearce is dragged into a family crisis and it leads to a real romp across Edinburgh. The writing's top-notch as you'd expect - tension, energy and pace - with the usual smatterings of very dark humour and highly vivid protrayals of violent behaviour.
Bad men? Nobody writes them better.
