"Simply put, Dead Man Running is one terrific read from cover to cover. . . ! The plot is magnificently tangled, the characters are memorably drawn, and the intrigue is page gripping down to the very last page!" -- Midwest Book Review --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

I've long been a fan of Roy Lewis' series of Eric Ward novels, and this one may be the best of a good bunch.

Eric Ward is a complex character - a former policeman who is now a solicitor (lawyer) in a North England town, he has suffered from an eye disease and is too independent to move in a crowd. As this book opens, he has been divorced for awhile from wealthy and well-connected Anne, and has turned his back on opportunities for a lucrative corporate and business practice. Ward prefers to serve a middle and working class clientele from his office in an unfashionable part of town. At a law association dinner he encounters Anne, who asks him to look in on farmer and old neighbor Paddy Fenton, who's in a bit of legal trouble.

Thus Ward gets involved in a fast-moving and complex set of events, including murder - which is finally untangled only on almost the final page of this exceedingly good crime novel.

Like many UK farmers, Paddy's been nearly wiped out by disease epidemics - or by the heavy-handed response of the government to those epidemics, take your pick. Approached to rent out his barn for a few days, Paddy took the money and asked few questions, because he was going to be away at the time. But the police had the place staked out, and arrested a small group of men producing "smokies" - illegally slaughtered, fire-seared whole sheep carcasses for which there is a big underground market in the UK in some immigrant communities, and which are a health hazard because they are not properly butchered. A policeman on the raid is badly injured by one of the fleeing criminals, who is then chased by a mixed bunch of characters through the rest of the story.

Simply put, Dead Man Running is one terrific read from cover to cover! Lawyer Eric Ward represents Paddy Fenton, a landowner who has tried to make a little money on the side by renting out his barn. The problem is that the renters are involved in the illegal business of making bush meat resulting in a police raid that goest completely sour. The result is Eric finds himself embroiled in a violent turf war. The plot is magnificently tangled, the charecters are memorably drawn, and the intrigue is page gripping down to the very last page!
