Review

5.0 out of 5 stars Be drawn into the Vortex, 17 Sep 2013 By Linda Acaster (Yorkshire, UK) Nick Quantrill's writing has deepened with each of his three Joe Geraghty novels set in Hull, and in 'The Crooked Beat' the complex story threads perfectly match his spare writing style. He has become a master at mirroring personal trauma with the public face of the city's life, and the subtleties of past and present, and a hoped for future, are interwoven with great skill around the main storyline. Geraghty's brother has agreed to store a consignment of smuggled cigarettes in his lock-up, except overnight they're stolen. So the vortex begins to turn, sucking in the good and the bad, and laying bare motivations and fears rooted a generation before. The power of Nick Quantrill's writing lies not in telling the reader what is happening, but in setting a scene and allowing the reader to become embroiled in its dynamics - a so-called hard man out of his depth when faced with implacable foreign criminals; the poignant interaction of Geraghty and an old lady, both knowing her missing son has been murdered but neither wanting to name the reality; a policeman living with a view of himself that can no longer paper over the cracks. This thought-provoking novel is based among real streets; the characters may be fictional, but the people they portray are very real indeed. If Nick Quantrill maintains the quality of his work he will doubtless become The Next Big Name in Noir Crime. Pick it up. You won't put it down.

From the Back Cover

When Joe Geraghty’s brother finds himself in financial trouble, it’s only natural that he turns to the Private Investigator for help. But when it relates to a missing consignment of smuggled cigarettes, it’s not so easily sorted. Drawn into the murky world of local and international criminals around the port of Hull, Geraghty knows the only way to save his brother is to take on the debt himself. But as he attempts to find a way out of the situation, the secrets and conspiracies he uncovers are so deeply buried in the past, he knows he’s facing people willing to do whatever it takes to keep them that way.
