"Another great addition to an outstanding British police series" Library Journal on No Stone Unturned "Turnbull's vividly evoked Yorkshire setting will appeal to fans of Peter Robinson's Alan Banks series, and the interplay between his team of detectives suggests John Harvey's Charlie Resnick novels" Booklist on No Stone Unturned "A solid British police procedural with a plot full of unexpected twists and a pair of protagonists who can play in the same league as any of Britain's top cop duos" Booklist on Chelsea Smile "Give Hennessey and Yellich to fans of Reginald Hill's Dalziel and Pascoe" Booklist on Fire Burn "Recommend this one to fans of John Harvey and Ian Rankin" Booklist on Chill Factor" --Ce texte fait référence à l'édition Gebundene Ausgabe.
This title presents the new Hennessey and Yellich mystery. A police officer finds a badly injured man lying in a street in the centre of York in the early hours of the morning. The man subsequently succumbs to his injures without regaining consciousness. Hennessey and Yellich are brought in to investigate, along with the other members of the team, Ventnor and Pharoah. Their inquiries reveal that the man was looking into the death of his brother and that he wouldn't accept the fact that he'd died from 'natural causes'. The police investigate further and discover a vindictive divorcee and her involvement with a deeply suspect finance company which has connections to other unsolved murders. --Ce texte fait référence à l'édition Gebundene Ausgabe.

The story begins with a constable walking his beat in York, who discovers a dying man. The man is quickly identified, but there seems little to help police find his killer or killers -- although there is reason to believe it may not be a random act of violence. The man's widow comments that he had been upset about something but would not provide her with any information because it was that kind of a marriage - he was a very private man who was very close to his brothers. Unfortunately, one of his brothers also died unexpectedly, not too long ago. The police wonder if this death - apparently natural -- may be connected in some way. This begins the careful process of following leads to learn more and try to discover what the murder victim was upset about, since this might have given someone a motive for murder.
The reader follows the police through their investigation, as more information is revealed with each interview. If you like well-crafted police procedurals that are low on violence and not interested in romance, I think you will enjoy this entry in the series. The book is tightly written, and the quality of writing well above average, particularly the dialogue and characterization.
