9781605986166

Delighted to hear that Darkness, Darknesspublished in the US by Pegasus Crime, has been selected as one of Best Crime Novels of 2014-2015 by the American Library Association’s Booklist.

The selections were made by Booklist reviewer Bill Ott. Here’s what he had to say about Darkness, Darkness:

Thankfully, Harvey decided against his plan to kill off Nottingham copper Charlie Resnick. After an exquisite coda to the series (Cold in Hand, 2008), he now delivers a definitively final episode in the story of a detective whose focus is perpetually clouded by his abiding melancholy over the all-too-human lives of the individuals caught in the backlash of crime. So it is again as the now-retired Resnick is asked to help investigate a murder that ties back to one of his first cases. The Resnick novels remain one of the high points in the history of crime fiction.

Thanks, Bill …

And these are the other books and authors that make up the Top Ten.

Broken Monsters, Lauren Beukes; The Girl on the Train, Paula Hawkins; Hush Hush, Laura Lippman; The Long Way Home, Louise Penny; Nobody Walks, Mick Herron; Perfidia, James Ellroy; The Secret Place, Tana French; Tigerman, Nick Harkaway; The Whites, Harry Brandt (Richard Price)
