Kurzbeschreibung

Jack Stallworthy is a bad detective just on the right side of corrupt. But now he's turning criminal...

Detective Sergeant Jack Stallworthy has been accepting backhanders for most of his career. And why not? He's spent thirty years putting villains behind bars, surely he's entitled to a little nest-egg?

Lily, the pretty wife he dearly loves, dreams of retirement on the tropical island Ko Samui, but Jack will happily settle for a bungalow in Devon. Until, that is, influential businessman Emslie Warnaby offers him paradise on a plate. All he has to do is steal one slim file from the Fraud Investigation office at police HQ. But soon Jack Stallworthy is dangerously out of his depth...

Synopsis

Assistant Chief Constable Ned French has no reason to remember a 15-year-old murder case, until it comes back to haunt him. For French and a colleague tampered with a confession to murder in what they deemed an open-and-shut case. But now someone else has confessed to the killing.

After serving on the Abbotsport Central police force for three decades, fifty-two year old Detective Sergeant Jack Stallworthy ponders retirement. However, he knows his meager pension will not cover the expense of him and his wife Lily living on the tropical island of Ko Samui.
A bitter Jack becomes approachable to bribery and information technology executive Emslie Warnaby offers the bait. In exchange for stealing a file the police sized during an arrest, Emslie will provide two plane tickets to Ko Samui and the deed to a hotel on the island. However, Jack's efforts to beat the clock imposed on him by Emslie fail even as the cop keeps raising his criminal activity.
THE BAD DETECTIVE shows why H.R.F. Keating deserves the life time achievement award he has received. The story line centers on Jack's efforts to retrieve the file. However, on a deeper level Mr. Keating provides an interesting financial parity between the crooks and the cops. Even as Jack digs himself into a more serious situation, readers will empathize with his efforts and actually root for his success. The author of Inspector Ghote writes another winner.

Where can I find a Jack Stallworthy? A fellow so dedicated to his choc eating wife that he'll do anything to get her what she wants...I can play that part! He doesn't even blame her! He admits that even without Lily to please he might have been bad.
And Jack isn't REALLY bad, he's just a little bit bad. And considering what the world has come to, who could blame him? Ah, these are the traps the devil sets! You can't help liking the guy, and the people he does down deserve it so!
I'm delighted to report this is the first Keating book I've read--meaning I've got 49 wonderful stories to go! Keating reminds me of Donald Westlake--a very complimentary comparison.
Great fun. But--I hate to admit--I don't understand the ending! I missed the twist! That's a recommendation...I hope I do better next time.

Being ill and lying in bed all day long I took the time to read this book. Thinking I had bought a crime story, it was just another sociogram of another unhappy detective, another Wallander. Boring!
The story itself was hard to believe with the detective trying to bribe his way to the blue folder and everybody keeping quiet. Yeah, right.
At some points the story picked up and was even interesting to find out with what idea the detective would come up next to get to the folder. But that was about it.
And PLEASE, if you do read this book, do not read the final chapters. When he gets the doctor's diagnosis. What has this got to do with the story? Maybe the author said to himself: if I write a strange story, why not add a strange ending.
All in all I was very disappointed and will not read another of this author's books.
