Jack Harvey
Three thrillers by mega-seller Ian Rankin, writing as Jack Harvey. Rankins ability to create a credible character, delivering convincing dialogue to complement sinister and hard-hitting plots against vividly detailed atmosphere, is simply awesome Time Out His fiction buzzes with energy. Essentially he is a romantic storyteller in the tradition of Robert Louis Stevenson. His prose is as vivid and terse as the next mans yet its flexibility and rhythm give it a potential for lyrical expression which is distinctively Rankins own. Rankin controls the material with extraordinary authority and even delicacy. Rankin ranks alongside P.D. James and Michael Dibdin as Britains finest detective novelist -Scotland on Sunday Rankins prose is understated, yet his canvas of Scotlands criminal underclass has a panoramic breadth. His ear for dialogue is as sharp as a switchblade. This is, quite simply, crime writing of the highest order Daily Express
