The final DI Charlie Resnick novel from the Cartier Diamond Dagger winner and Sunday Times bestselling author of Cold in Hand Thirty years ago the Miners' Strike threatened to tear the country apart Darkness Darkness Epubturning neighbour against neighbour husband against. ”So much had changed; so much remained the same” This book had stared at me accusingly for many years I’d pretend not to notice but was well aware that I was ignoring it I simply was not ready to say goodbye to Charlie Resnick It’s been an absolute pleasure reading this Nottingham based series John Harvey’s writing style is such that it takes you in and captures your attention No sooner have you started reading than you find yourself at the last page of the book Realistic well thought out police procedurals with well fleshed out characters in real life settings What could a reader ask for Jazz loving coffee drinking gourmet sandwich creating Charlie is now semi retired working a few days a week as a police consultant He’s asked to help with the cold case of a skeleton that has been unearthed on a building site It appears to have been buried in 1984 at the height of the miner’s strikeThe story moves seamlessly between the turmoil and upheaval of the mid 1980s and the present time The miner’s strike tore communities and families apart which Charlie witnessed first hand having been in the police force at the time The disuiet of those times is handled well by telling both sides of the story for those both for and against the strikeIn Charlie I feel a sense of inevitability Being a policeman he would have seen it all Human nature cannot be changed There will always be the push and pull of needs and wants For anyone looking for a decent read of well written police procedurals you cannot go past this series In fact in one of these lifetimes I’d very much like to re read them from start to finishI’m so sorry to say goodbye to such a humane empathetic likeable character But it’s time for Charlie to hand over the baton and put his feet up I’d like to think that Charlie is out there somewhere listening to a rare recording of a jazz classic enjoying a coffee and watching the world go by

Darkness Darkness Resnick 12Wife father against son enmities which smoulder still Resnick recently made up to inspector and ambivalent at best about some of the police tactics had run an information gathering unit at the heart of the dispute Now in virtual retirement and still grieving over the viole. The last of the series 6 years have passed since Lynn Kellogg's murder and Charlie has retired only to be taken back as a civilian investigator Then a skeleton is uncovered during the demolition of some disused miner's houses The body is identified as that of a woman who disappeared during the 1984 miner's strike At the time the thought was that she had run off from a loveless marriage Charlie is co opted as a helper onto the team tasked to investigate as he had been involved in the very emotive and at times bitter strike which was a full on clash between Margaret Thatcher's government and Arthur Scargill the miner's leader Throughout story follows the investigation with Charlie calling in favours from old time colleagues most of which are retired Jenny's story as the victim which finds her becoming involved in an active role with the unions which involved speaking at rallies and couriering money being distributed to the strikers after the union bank accounts had been frozen this did actually occur and her relationship with her husband and a young miner down to Nottinghamshire from YorkshireA side story is the new Detective leading the investigation and her abusive boyfriend Charlie is just a sad shadow of the man in the previous stories and he rather drifts through the book mostly looking on as a bagman Something of a come down The story itself was good enough and the blend of fact and fiction over the strike was good but the ending came abruptly and lacked continuity of plot felt as if John Harvey had had enough at this pointI could only give this one 2 stars
