Cutting Edge: (Resnick 3) by John Harvey



Cutting Edge sings the blues for people too bruised to carry the tune for themselves. Charlie was noted for his Polish descent and love of both sandwiches and jazz. The first novel in the series, Lonely Hearts was published in 1989, and was named by The Times as one of the "100 Greatest Crime Novels of the Century".

Maura! Got to go. Resnick pushed himself up. Right. Anything else special about him? Except for bad taste? Standing there, Resnick was conscious of the creases in his bagged trousers, the stain on his jacket lapel. What about it? Not a lot of it. For someone his age. Maura! All right!

Cutting Edge (Charles Resnick, by John Harvey. An original anthology. A collection of twenty-seven original geezer noir stories by some of today’s top crime writers, including John Harvey, Laura Lippman, Ken Bruen, Colin Cotterill, and more. Bill Crider’s Cranked was nominated for the Ed. Ash & Bone (Frank Elder, by John Harvey. When the take-down of a violent criminal goes badly wrong, something doesn't feel right to Detective Sergeant Maddy Birch. And her uneasiness is compounded by her belief that someone is following her home. Retired Detective Inspector Frank Elder's daughter.

About book: It's a lot darker than Rough Treatment. The streets of Nottingham are gritty, full of disaffected, frequently violent youth, but that's just the backdrop. This is my second read through of the John Harvey Charlie Resnick series. In CUTTING EDGE it seems that doctors and nurses are safe enough if they stay in the hospital, but when they leave the curing corridors a scalpel wielding maniac is on the loose. The question is are the patients safe IN the halls of healing or are their maniacs with scalpels in there as well. You can't go wrong with Resnick and the background music of jazz and the blues which echo the human condition in all it's sorry state.

Charlie Resnick is one of those British coppers who seem to have a dark cloud constantly hanging over his head. He's a good guy; he doesn't drink himself numb, and the officers in his squad would do anything for him. His job is really the only thing that keeps him going. Charlie is hovering somewhere between dedication and obsession when it comes to his work.

On the personal front in Cutting Edge, Charlie's ex-wife is doing her best to mess things up for him, and he's trying to help a down-and-out alcoholic musician. Both situations lead to mixed results, but they show readers much of what is so good about Resnick.

Harvey has created one extremely difficult and scary case to solve, and although I never really came to grips with it, it certainly was a pleasure to follow along with Charlie as he solved it. If you like tough investigations run by a smart, flawed, and very likable policeman, John Harvey's Charlie Resnick mysteries are just the ticket.

John Harvey is a great author, I have read all of his books twice before purchasing these. This group of books are the Charlie Resnick series, anyone who enjoys a good police procedure would like these. He also is well versed in Jazz and it is featured all the time, which I find very enjoyable. These books are set in England,and as an expat it is a look into into the way things have changed in the UK, of course these are fiction but you can get idea of the social problems that are arising. I think he is under estimated in the US, hopefully these e books will introduce him to new readers who will in turn read his newer books, which are every bit as good . I am now on pre-order for his newest book inprint form. Looking forward to that!!

Harvey is a happy discovery for me even though his protagonist can be depressing

Unexpected plot twists-totally believable but unique. Charlie at his best in solving crimes but not his problems. Very enjoyable read!

This author just keeps getting better with each read.

good story as usual
"CHARLIE" as he is so affectionately called, just keeps getting better and better as the books go on. I've read through the first three and have just ordered the next three. I'm intent on reading the entire series. John Harvey has created a most interesting man.
