It's so easy
John Harvey can impress the reader, and grow to become a pure acquaried taste. His style is built on principles dating back to the folk storytellers of old times: "There was this angry man ..." He writes stories which force the unwary reader to being drawn into a strange mental country, where hate and revenge play off against an often rural or even bigcity English background. The stories plays in an English foggy climate, but the prose is crystal clear, and incisive.
Be sure to get aquainted with John Harvey. You will not regret it.

Of the 18 short stories in this collection, four feature Charlie Resnick, seven north London detective Jack Kiley, and one in which they both appear. Each, of course, is a well-known protagonist featured in prior John Harvey novels. And their characters come through even more strongly in a short story.

As Mr. Harvey writes in an introduction, the short story form gives an author greater latitude to experiment with an idea or character to learn whether or not use can be made later in the novel format. The extremely well-written, well-constructed short stories are a prime example of that observation.

Not lost in the shuffle is Harvey's fascination with the world of jazz, nor his descriptions of London and outlying areas, especially the more depressing aspects of English life and the world of crime.

Highly recommended.
