If John Harvey’s novels were songs, Charlie Parker would play them. Cutting Edge sings the blues for people too bruised to carry the tune for themselves. Writing in a minor key to tell this moody revenge tragedy.

Rough Treatment book. I really like John Harvey's Charlie Resnick books. The story is not so much about crime(s) but people and how they. are. Some good; some not so good; some just awful. And in the background is quiet Charlie Resnick taking it all in and thinking. what? That is the question. Does anybody (but John Harvey) know what Charlie thinks? Probably not what they think he's thinking.

I’ll bet, Resnick was thinking, heading for the kitchen, we’re still only checking the agencies that specialize in rented property; firms like Claire’s, I doubt if we even gave them a call. At the start of office hours the following morning, that was set right. The rental Resnick was interested in was a top-floor flat, unsold for too long and in this market unsaleable at a decent profit. The man who signed the lease had paid in cash, moved in right away, a short let exactly what he wanted, long enough to finish up his business, nothing more.

Rough Treatment is a story about a series of house break-ins that were too neat to be anything but inside jobs. It all adds up to another complex and fast-paced police procedural featuring Detective Inspector Charlie Resnick. This is a hardcover with dust jacket.

John Harvey has not tied Charlie Resnick to his personal history from the first book in the series, and this is good. Charlie is never sure about his personal life circumstances, but pursues whatever clues he can detect to solve the crimes. Good twists in story, some humor, with interesting character development. A good read

Just discovered this series of a somewhat out of the ordinary UK detective--Charlie Resnick. Loved the first and found the second a different sort of mystery--no mystery at all really except how John Harvey was going to tie up all the plot threads that he was weaving throughout this book.
A sexy, kind-hearted thief, a burgeled wife who appreciates being appreciated, less music and more sandwiches, and a very natural way of giving us info about the continuing cast of characters...
Reading "Rough Treatment" was akin to listening to a rondo --where various musical themes carry on separately and together in harmony.
Thought it was masterfully executed....definitely NOT the kind of mystery/novel where the writer ends the book in a way that makes you think s/he just ran out of ideas and took the quickest way out the door...As a reader you just have to be willing to allow the writer to set the pace and allow the story to unfold as it requires.

I have only read 2 of this series but really enjoy Resnick's character. Keeps you interested and not too many characters.
Look forward to reading more.

  • energy breath
A good read but a bit toouch personal angst.

up to his good standard
Every bit as tightly woven as any in this marvelous series; it is more of a character study than the others. Master thief Jerry Grabianski is as finely wrought as his protagonist, DI Charlie Resnick. Less blood, more subtlety.
