Someone is killing paedophiles in Manchester. No great loss to society one might think, and in the context of this story you’d be right. It takes a while for the police to make the connection that the victims are all paedophiles and once they do they realise that catching him is not going to be easy. When the killer becomes a media celebrity, stirring up public feeling and speaking out against the authorities and their ineffective punishments for, and monitoring of, paedophile activities they realise that things will be harder still.
DCI Andrew Miller is the youngest of his rank in recent history, but he soon learns that higher ranks are doing their level best to prevent him catching this killer, citing the old chestnut of budget cuts etc. Fuelled by his anger, Miller continues to investigate.
Steven Suttie has penned a really explosive novel that goes deep into the nitty-gritty of police station politics and probes the depths of the emotive effective of crime on the general public. Few police procedurals ever go that deep. He tells the story with evocative prose and dialogue so that you can feel the emotion rising off the page. Suttie’s characterisation is also vivid and explores both working and personal relationships with a depth and sensitivity rare in this kind of fiction.
This book is a must for fans of Manchester-based crime fiction. For authors of the same, this book is a warning. This is good writing, crime fiction at its best and you could learn a lot from it. I am already reading the second DCI Miller book.
