Review quote

"Strong characterization and tight plotting." "--Publishers Weekly" on "One Under" "Strong characterization and tight plotting." "Publishers Weekly" on "One Under"" "This book has everything required of a first rate police procedural and Hurley is now firmly at the top, with few rivals in this genre." "Sunday Telegraph"" "A great British police procedural. Faraday is a fine creation." Michael Connelly, author, "A Darkness More than Night"" An exceptional crime novel with an intelligently constructed plot, meticulous attention to the detail of police operations and an array of colourful and lifelike characters--ENIGMA Hurley is one of my favourite Brit crime writers of the last few years, and long may he continue to chronicle Portsmouth's seedier side--INDEPENDENT ON SUNDAY This is a bravura piece of downbeat crime writing; Hurley just seems to get better and better with each Faraday book--CRIME TIME This is how a crime novel should be written, and it pushes Hurley right to the forefront of British crime writers, which is where he richly deserves to be--INDEPENDENT ON SUNDAY Uncompromisingly realistic and often depressing in its view of the battle against crime, this series grows in stature with each book--SUNDAY TELEGRAPH An ambitious police procedural epic... A splendid achievement--GUARDIAN "Readers who haven t already found the brilliant Joe Faraday series of novels by Graham Hurley should pick up the latest superb episodeCut to Black. Hurley is one of the best of the new crop of realistic cop-shop writers . . .He s a very different kind of writer to Ian Rankin but he s every bit as good." "Toronto Globe and Mail"" "Readers who haven't already found the brilliant Joe Faraday series of novels by Graham Hurley should pick up the latest superb episode--Cut to Black. Hurley is one of the best of the new crop of realistic cop-shop writers . . . He's a very different kind of writer to Ian Rankin but he's every bit as good." "--Toronto Globe and Mail"
