A stiffish wind was gusting up the face of the hill and a young girl with blonde hair was flying a scarlet kite, making it swoop. and soar against the pale blue of the sky. Brodie had been watching her for some time now. She’d once had a kite, she said, as a kid. Her brother had borrowed it without asking and the thing had ended up entangled in power lines, miles from home. That was the day she’d decided to become a copper

DI Joe Faraday's Management Assistant, Vanessa Parry, is dead The Price Of Darkness.

DI Joe Faraday's Management Assistant, Vanessa Parry, is dead. Killed in a head-on car smash. Her funeral is a bitter end to another grim week in the front line of the ongoing war against Portsmouth's surging crimewave. Graham Hurley has written another vivid novel of all too human policeman struggling against an overwhelming tide of crime. This is crime writing with a vivid edge of documentary realism. The Price Of Darkness. D/C Winter has gone undercover in an attempt to infiltrate the inner circle of the city's premier drug's lord Bazza McKenzie.

DC Winter has gone undercover in an attempt to infiltrate the inner circle of the city's premier drug lord. Isolated from his colleagues, resenting the way his superiors have presented him the job as a fait accompli, and abroad in a world where money is easy and respect is earned in brutally straightforward ways, Winter is in his element—worryingly so. Concerns among his superiors that Winter may finally have had too much temptation put in his path are soon supplanted by two vicious murders. First a high-profile local property developer is shot, with clinical efficiency, in his own bed. A few days later a government minister is assassinated while his car is stuck in a traffic jam. A fevered investigation begins with Winter's erstwhile boss, detective inspector Faraday, in charge. With clues hard to come by, the government panicking, and the anti-terrorist branch circling, Faraday is shoved off the case and left in charge just of the investigation into the property developer's murder. Faraday is also tasked with keeping track of Winter and soon discovers that Winter, the arch-conspirator, has been set up. As Winter begins to realize what his bosses had in mind for him and Faraday begins to put together the pieces of a heartbreaking story of personal and political betrayal that may well link the two murders, The Price of Darkness becomes a study of the desperate measures some people take when their friends and their society let them down.

i AM SORRY BUT i WROTE THE REVIEW OF "THE PRICE OF DARKNESS" UNDER the column for "Doors Open".
This is my mistake and I have not read "Doors Open" yet.

Very well plotted and described. Portsmouth must be a hugely depressing city for the cops, despite urban regeneration.

I am not sure the author wants us to admire Winter, a cop who walks off the force to become pally with a criminal and his trashy thuggish friends. Maybe Hurley has got tired of writing true to life police procedurals in which small lives are wasted and big crimes can't be pinned on anyone. This social comment leaves us in no doubt that men can make big money from crime and women can be used and abused by criminals. Even the women given luxuries are just status symbols, to be passed around to other men at the boss's whim.

We also see the murders of a property developer and a minister. I cannot believe it took so long for someone to see the similarities meant they were almost certainly linked. I saw it right away. The painstaking work of the detectives is illustrated through Faraday, who has his own concerns about his ever more strange son JJ.

Well worth a read; and the story draws the reader in at parts, the writing smooth and forceful in turn. This is an unbiased review.

After looking forward to another Joe Faraday storyThe Price of Darkness, I was rather disappointed by this latest offering from Graham Hurley. The characters as usual, are well drawn and speak with voices true to their setting. Faraday is also true to form -- concerned, sensitive and sensible, empathetic with the victims, but also vaguely vulnerable and naive at times. The police's, and Pompey's, nemesis Bazza McKenzie is firing on all cylinders, but still manages to draw the reader into a love-hate relationship.

A couple of issues though. How is it that the police, with all their resources, and through so many stories, have failed to nail McKenzie after all these years? And what of the subplot involving Faraday's deaf son J-J and his over-the-top real estate purchase: why was it included?

This storyline was almost a bit too clever in its construction. The various "subplots" were too distracting -- but at the same time not adequately fleshed out. Things moved along at a fairly brisk pace, but then some relatively inconsequential bits and pieces subtly broke its pacing. I found myself sometimes reading a chapter and then saying, "oh yeah, I'd forgotten about him,or that, or whatever", which shouldn't really happen in a good, evenly-paced storyline.

Even the jet-ski tournament sort of fizzled out as an idea (in the author's plan of things) without a particularly concrete solution. And Paul winter: good-guy or good-guy turned bad? It was left hanging at the end. And when Winter admitted to Bazza that his new marketing agent was an undercover cop, surely Bazza would've had her killed. Or, alternatively, Winter wouldn't have given her game away. Didn't really gel at all.

So... basically just an okay read, but I'm thinking I won't be looking for any more Graham Hurley/Joe Faraday books in the near future. 6/10
