Very entertaining. Pawson has a very deft touch and manages to balance a well- developed and perfectly plausible plot with some woeful wise-cracking from his principal character, the immensely likeable and utterly believable Detective Inspector Charlie Priest.
This is the fourth novel of Pawson's that I have read so far and I am looking forward to the rest of the series. ( )

This is the first book in the DI Charlie Priest series. It's an English Police Procedural, but quite a bit different than most of the books that I read in this genre. For one thing it is wickedly funny. I love the humour in the book, and I really like Charlie. I cannot wait to read more about him. In this book he is off on temporary disability, but he can't stay away from police work, so agrees to a surveillance job that turns out to be anything but simple. It appears on the surface to be a simple drugs running operation that takes Charlie over to Rotterdam on the ferry, but the group he's observing has its fingers in a lot more pies than that, and they are extremely dangerous. This book has a reality feel to it. Pawson gets British police work just right!! ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 074908314X, Paperback)

Detective Inspector Charlie Priest of the East Pennine force is officially on sick leave, but this brief break from work comes to an abrupt end when Mrs. Marina Norris's chauffeur is found dead from unnatural causes - namely a blast to the head from a Kalashnikov. Her husband, an American tobacco tycoon, is distinctly unfazed. Meanwhile, big-time drug smugglers on the Hull to Rotterdam run demand his attention. When Charlie discovers the connection between his previous enquiry and the drug smugglers he realizes that he's on very dangerous territory indeed.
