...danger stalks the night streets of Tower Hamlets in London... a wave of unwarranted vicious attacks bring serious injury to defenceless street-sleepers... until the inevitable death of a homeless man... the detective hunting the assailants is faced with a parallel crop of reprisal killings to solve as bodies of criminal offenders in the area turn up with regularity... evidence points toward a vengeful figure, living in the shadows of the borough... a man with honed professional killing skills coupled with an addictive hungry lust to watch others die by his hand... Harry's rules govern his own brand of justice... Seumas Gallacher, author of the Jack Calder series. --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.
About the Author
Glen R. Stansfield is a qualified aircraft engineer, a profession he has pursued for over forty years. A lifelong interest in crime, in particular forensic psychology, led him to write his debut novel, Fishing for Stones. When not writing, he can sometimes be found on two wheels, often using his motorcycle to raise money for charity. His work has taken him to Bahrain, where he lives with his wife, Jess.

In keeping with the author’s style, the characters are distinct, and tangibly real, even those operating outside of the norm. There is an arc of change and development for most of them, which makes for refreshing reading. Additionally, there prevails a sense of hope in the writing.
There are some interesting twists and reveals as one progresses, and it’s the marque of an excellent writer. The structure of the novel lends itself to the creation of a robust series, each book self-contained, and I’m rather eagerly awaiting the next instalment.
Overall, Harry is a great read without the senseless and vivid gore. I found it to be creative and original. If you enjoy a good mystery or crime story, this one fulfils both.
There are carry-over characters from the author’s first book, Fishing for Stones, which I’ve also read and enjoyed. Both books are stand-alone, but they also play together well.
Though I’m more partial to romance than crime drama, it’s fun to venture outside of my usual genre sometimes. I’ll be watching out for Stansfield’s next book. He puts together complex, fast-paced and very readable stories.
