"Excellent, Charlie Priest is a sort of Yorkshire Inspector Morse, and a likeable hero." -- Yorkshire Post
About the Author
Stuart Pawson lives in Fairburn, Yorkshire, and when not hunched over the word processor likes nothing more than tramping across the moors, which often feature in his stories. --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

The plot has several well-developed themes which Pawson controls deftly, keeping the tension without ever compromising the story's plausibility. And he covers a lot of ground - gang warfare, sex-trafficking, illegal car racing, shahtoosh smuggling and mountaineering rivalries.
It helps that Charlie Priest is an immensely believable detective - empathetic and flawed - and his team at Heckley CID are equally realistic.
As usual this book contains lots of humour which balances with the violent crimes, and makes for a wonderful read.
Cannot recommend highly enough.
The wise-cracking and irrepressible Yorkshire humour somehow manages to hone down the sordid nature of the very real criminal situations Charlie encounters and Stuart is incredibly competent interweaving many variable themes which come together well .
The world of greed, corruption, murder, intimidation, people trafficking, smuggling, and fraud - Stuart has it all.
This is a series not to be missed.
Book 13 had just been released - eagerly anticipated!
It's so well written, you can actually see it all in your head. Brilliant!!
