BeschreibungWhen a seventeen-year-old Moldovan boy is found dead on Hampstead Heath, the case falls to DCI Karen Shields and her overstretched Homicide & Serious Crime team. Karen knows she needs a result. What she doesn't know is that her new case is tied inextricably to a much larger web of gang warfare and organised crime which infiltrates almost every aspect of London society, from the back streets and high rises of Tottenham to the multi-million pound hideaways of the new international entrepreneurs.
Several hundred miles away in Cornwall, DI Trevor Cordon is stirred from his day-to-day duties by another tragic London fatality. Travelling to the capital, determined to establish the cause of death and trace the deceased's daughter - an old acquaintance from Penzance - Cordon becomes entangled in a lethally complex situation of his own. A situation much closer to Karen's case than either of them can imagine ...
Brilliantly plotted and filled with rich, subtle characters, John Harvey's latest novel reveals him once again as a masterful writer with his finger firmly on the pulse of twenty-first century crime.
Pressestimmen"Just when you thought that Harvey couldn't get any better, up he pops with yet another brilliantly constructed, coolly written, chillingly sharp and utterly contemporary procedural." -- Henry Sutton Daily Mirror "John Harvey is not just a fine crime novelist but a fine writer, and an adornment to his chosen genre. I devoured Good Bait in a day, and defy any reader to do otherwise.Great stuff." -- John Connolly "John Harvey returns in resounding form . Terrific plot and, in Karen Shields, a splendid new heroine." -- Marcel Berlins The Times "Intricate, character-driven plotting and a large canvas full of telling detail lift this above the average police procedural." -- Laura Wilson Guardian "John Harvey shows he is one of the best crime writers around: perhaps even Britain's answer to the great Elmore Leonard" Mail on Sunday
