Gone to Ground - John Harvey

Gone to Ground - John Harvey. A copy of Shepperton Babylon had been left open, face down, on the arm of one chair, a young Dirk Bogarde in shiny black leather trousers and improbable black hat staring out from the cover.

I love John Harvey's books. His writing is always clear and straightforward and perfectly detailed. His Charlie Resnick and Frank Elder series are wonderful, but in GONE TO GROUND he introduces a new pair of police investigators who should delight all fans of British mysteries. Will Grayson (married with kids) and Helen Walker (alone and not happy about it) are a great team, and their first case is very exciting.

Having read the Charlie Resnick series by John Harvey I decided to try this series which seems to be just two books. It is a good, straightforward police procedural novel featuring Detective Inspector Will Grayson and Detective Sergeant Helen Walker base in Cambridge. A college lecturer is found beaten to death in his home. Initial suspicion falls on his gay lover but nothing puts him in the house at the time and the trail goes cold.

In 2007 John Harvey was awarded the CWA Cartier Diamond Dagger and in 2009 he was awarded an honorary degree, Doctor of Letters, by the University of Nottingham.

When police detective Will Grayson and his partner, Helen Walker, investigate the violent death of Stephen Bryan, a gay academic, their first thoughts are of an ill-judged sexual encounter or a fatal lovers’ quarrel. But they soon shift focus to the book Bryan was writing about the life and mysterious death of fifties film star Stella Leonard. While Bryan’s sister puts herself in danger by conducting her own investigation, Grayson and Walker peel away the secrets of a family blighted by a lust for wealth and power and by its perverted sexuality. On the heels of his critically acclaimed Frank Elder series, John Harvey delivers a page-turner both subtle and devastating.

Past and present overlap when British film professor Stephen Bryan is brutally murdered in his home. At first it seems to be a crime of passion or a hate crime (the victim was gay), but soon the case becomes more complicated. Prof. Bryan was working on a book, a biography of a 1950s movie star named Stella Leonard. As the local police and Bryan's journalist sister investigate his death, the old movie star and her dysfunctional family keep coming into view. It seems someone didn't want Stella Leonard's secrets to be made public in a biography. And the killing may not be over....

I love John Harvey's books. His writing is always clear and straightforward and perfectly detailed. His Charlie Resnick and Frank Elder series are wonderful, but in GONE TO GROUND he introduces a new pair of police investigators who should delight all fans of British mysteries. Will Grayson (married with kids) and Helen Walker (alone and not happy about it) are a great team, and their first case is very exciting. Highly recommended.

As though you are falling into an old friend, usually you've already enjoyed some of the authors and the characters before. This is the first John Harvey novel I've had the pleasure to read, and I'm only a few pages in. Usually I would never post a review at this stage, what's to review ? But in this case, this author is just plain amazing ... I cannot wait to read the other book in this series as well as his other 2 series, and have a strong feeling I should of discovered him many years ago, but am just darn glad I can sit back and enjoy all his books in a row, and if you've not had the pleasure, then please do ....

A new series for John Harvey. Passages of this book are like virtuoso music - you it's played by a master. I know there are those who compare this series unfavourably with Resnick. I think they are very misguided. This has all the earmarks of being as much of a classic. The second in the series (Far Cry) even outshines this stunning overture!

A few detective novelists are as good at the "novelist" part as they are at the "detective" part--maybe better.

Such people as Robert Crais, Sara Paretsky, Robert Barnard, Lawrence Block (in the Scudder novels) create characters and situations that are involving and emotionally true--whatever the supposed "thriller" plot may be.

John Harvey is certainly one of these.

His prose is superb. He trained as a poet, and it shows. His word-choice is spectacular--tight, multilayered, vivid.

Even better are his characters.

In this one, we get a whole new set: principally the Cambridge police detective team Will Grayson and Helen Walker.

Grayson is stiff but tough. He has a lot to learn--not about detecting, but about life--and, amazingly, he learns it.

Walker is excellent. Sharp-tongued, brave, bright, sassy, tenacious. When she is attacked, you can feel your heart sink. She's like a real person, like one of your friends.

There are two plots here, but they converge.

Great stuff.

If you haven't read Harvey, and like good prose, good novels, and interesting thrillers, give him a try.

The murdered body of a gay academic is found in his own shower, savagely beaten and almost unrecognizable. The police start an investigation with detectives Will Grayson and Helen Walker as the leads and they naturally home straight in on the victim's former lover, whom they question at length but fail in making any connection with the crime. The area where the man lived is home to a number of homophobic thugs, all of whom have taken part in random and often mistaken bashings on anyone they choose. It's an ugly situation, made uglier by the poverty, ignorance and hooliganism of the East Midlands at that time. Helen herself is attacked and hospitalised while Will is left to try to make some kind of connection with the fact that the murder victim was attempting to write the life story of a former 50's movie star and getting no cooperation from her remaining family, only threats from the bully boy husband of her grandaughter. There are some very dark sides to this story which was very well written and which would hold the reader's interest, right to the end.
