Description

A man, chained inside a tunnel and then dismembered and scattered along the tracks by the early morning train from Portsmouth to London. The beginning of DI Joe Faraday's most gruesome case yet. A bizarre suicide? The cruelest of murders? Checking the list of missing persons as the police attempt to identify the body DC Winter comes across a missing man, someone who stepped out of their ordered life with no hint of leaving. He's not the man in the tunnel, he's simply disappeared. The only person he can find who knew him works in the city morgue. Once again Graham Hurley has taken his forensic skill to the lives of people, victims, criminals and police, struggling to survive life in a modern British city. With his trademark realism and his focus on two very different policeman; one awkward and by the book, the other bolshy and walking the thinnest of lines, Hurley's Faraday and Winter novels are earning ever more spectacular reviews, and building readership. One Under: two deaths, two tangles of emotions and thwarted love, one brilliant microcosm of Britain today.show more

Review quote

'There is no-one writing better police procedurals today than Graham Hurley. He gives an almost cinematic quality to the narrative, creating a convincing sense of watching a team of real detectives at work' -- Suzanna Yager SUNDAY TELEGRAPH 'Hurley is one of the great talents of British police procedurals. Every book he delivers is better than the last and ONE UNDER is no exception. I can't recommend it highly enough' -- Mark Timlin INDEPENDENT ON SUNDAY 'A first-rate thriller, which is graphic and gritty and will hit you right in the stomach from the very start.' PETERBOROUGH EVENING TELEGRAPH 'A wonderfully plotted yarn' SUNDAY TRIBUNE (Ireland) 'ONE UNDER is a majestic book. It's immaculately-plotted, has a strong character to anchor it, and shows police work in all its graft and frustrations' REVIEWING THE EVIDENCE Hurley started the DI Faraday series in 2000, when you might have thought the genre didn't need another police series. But he brings something different to an overworked medium...The story begins in the dark of a train tunnel, and finishes in the darkness of men's hearts.' TANGLED WEBshow more
