This is John Harvey and Resnick at their best!

As usual the action takes place in Nottingham (and I particularly enjoyed the occasional references to Loughborough!), and the beleaguered Resnick is up against it once again. A local festival is celebrating crime fiction and some classic noir films, and popular American author Cathy Jordan, responsible for the immensley successful series of garish and violent thrillers featuring feisty PI Annie Q Jones is the star attraction. However, she has been receiving threatening letters, and the police are approached to render additional security.

Meanwhile a prostitute is attacking her male clients at various venues around the city. Eventually, as the police feared would be the case, a punter is murdered.

As always with Harvey's masterful series of Resnick novels, the plot is entirely plausible and the characters perfectly credible. The readers shares Resnick's weariness and the sheer despair of Lynn Kellog, his long-suffering DC. And, as usual, we are treated to sumptuous descriptions of the marvellous sandwiches that Resnick somehow always finds time to construct! ( )

Living Proof by John Harvey is the 7th book featuring DI Charlie Resnick, and adds to the general excellence of this series. These deceptively simple police procedurals follow Charlie and his team as they investigate a number of various crimes. In this outing, the city of Nottingham is hosting an Arts Festival and one of the best-selling authors has been receiving threatening letters. At the same time, along with other crimes that need to be more closely examined, there appears to be a prostitute that is making a practice of sticking a knife in her Johns. The team is feeling a little stretched with their various cases, not being able to give their best to any one case but instead trying to clear them all.

The storyline involving the author is a fun one, at various points real life authors like Ian Rankin, Sarah Dunant, Sarah Waters and Val McDermid are either part of the story or mentioned. The various plotlines are interesting, at times appear intertwined, and a nice twist is delivered at the end of the story to wrap everything up nicely.

I enjoy looking at my shelves and seeing that I still have a few more Charlie Resnick books to discover as these are some of the best police procedurals I have read. ( )
