Product Description

Review

"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.

A welcome return to top form here for Stuart Pawson. After the previous novel in this series I had wondered whether it was about time for his Detective Inpsector Priest to think about retiring. However, here Pawson is back at his impressive best.
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.

A much underrated author, Pawson has created a lovable character in Charlie Priest, who lives an exciting life, whilst maintaining a very normal personality.
As usual this book contains lots of humour which balances with the violent crimes, and makes for a wonderful read.
Cannot recommend highly enough.

I only came across Stuart Pawson's Charlie Priest series recently. What a treat! I have now read all of them in quick succession. Sadly it doesn't look as if there will be any more. I love the characterisation, the plotting, the sense of place and, above al,l the wit in every one. What I can't understand is why they are not more widely known. Surely his sense of humour is not confined to Yorkshire! Every book in the series is a great read. In my opinion they would make a great television series.

This is the 10th book in Stuart Pawson's impressive series featuring long-serving Detective Inspector Charlie Priest and his team at Heckley nick.
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!
