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.
