Western Approaches

Western Approaches

A body. A policeman. Over the edge…
The launch of a stunning crime series from the author of the acclaimed Faraday and Winter novels.


No one liked Jake Kinsey. A rich man, he turned up out of nowhere, acquired Exmouth’s trophy penthouse flat, and then bought his way into the local rowing club. And now, after a long fall from his balcony, he’s dead.

DS Jimmy Suttle, a newcomer to the Devon and Cornwall force, is the one detective who suspects that Kinsey has been killed – but there is very little evidence.

Left to work alone, Jimmy is all too conscious that time, the pressure of the job, and the wreckage of his private life are lengthening the odds against any kind of result. And with a wife embittered by the move to a remote country cottage, Suttle must gamble his own integrity against the mounting chaos of the lives around him.

Reviews

Hurley is a giant of British police procedural novels, and with Western Approaches we find an author on top of his game. As good as, if not better than Peter James and Ian Rankin.
Mark Timlin, CRIME TIME
This is another cracker from Graham Hurley...This is a very good opportunity to climb aboard and savour this writer's very addictive series. Brilliant.
CRIMESQUAD
Graham Hurley's determination to look the seamy reality full in the face is refreshing because so rare...Hurley's devastating account of Suttle's marriage is one of the best things he has done.
Jake Kerridge, DAILY TELEGRAPH
Skillfully combining murder mystery and police procedural drama with a West Country travelogue, this is a satisfying read.
