Tony Parsons will always have a warm place in my heart after his ground breaking Man Boy now unbelievably written 20 years ago What Parsons excels in is relationships and in particular the dynamics of family life how passion can easily turn to sadnessand how there is very little that separates those great human emotions love and hate So when the author turned his skillful hand to writing a detective series I was eager to see if he could bring the same warmth to characters in a totally different setting and I was certainly not disappointed D I Max Wolfe is a a single parent living above Smithfield meat market in central London He shares his life with daughter Scout Stan the dog and irascible Mrs Murphy who sees herself as guardian of this lovely little family Ex wife Anne has flown the nest although we do meet her periodically in the series and she paints a rather sad picture of a mother too concerned with her own financial aspirations to be bothered about her daughter But this helps Parsons develop the character of Wolfe letting his warmth shine through and loved without uestion by Stan and Scout To me relationships form the heart of TP s writing brilliantly depicted against a criminal background Not like most crime novels Parsons has a clear simple plot Jessica Lyle is kidnapped whilst driving her friend Snezia s BMW Is this a case of mistaken identity were the kidnappers really after Snezia and by doing so hoping to blackmail her gangster boyfriend Harry Flowers Thats the plot and it runs along at a cracking pace but as implied above this is not what endears me to this novel It is TP s razor sharp observations of the human condition and the human heart with all the pain it must endure in a short lifetimethe recently dead do not leave us immediately They stay close by held by the sadness of leaving and the human bonds that were made in this worldThey were like brother and sister towards the end Isn t that the way it always ends up between men and women if you leave them together long enoughThere is a wonderful scene in the final chapter It is sports day at Scouts school and because her birthday is at the end of July she is always competing against fellow classmates who are older and thus have the advantage of age All she wants to do is just once win a gold silver or bronze sticker either in the heats or in the final She lines up against 3 fellow competitors one of whom is a rather overweight pupilsurely on this day she can win not a first place not even a second place but just possibly a third and perhaps finally receive a bronze stickerwell this is Tony Parsons writing and I am sure if you now understand his psyche a little better you will surely know the answer and the race outcome A wonderful writer that brings a much needed warmth to a great detective series Highly Recommended

Why aren t there Tony Parsons out there writing books for me Or barring that why can t Tony Parsons have the superpower of writing incredibly fast so I don t have to wait so long for his next book Parsons writes real complicated multi dimensional characters and crimes The main character is one of those few who stays with me and I am always a bit annoyed at the end of a book in the series because I am going to have to wait to see what happens next in his life Parsons writes real people both men and women not stereotypes Reading his books makes it painfully clear what crap the majority of crime fiction is Every one of the now 6 books in this series is just excellent That s all
