Product description

Product Description

Looking for a classic murder mystery from an acclaimed crime writer?

Discover Eric Ward, policeman turned lawyer. This beautifully told story, from a time before smart phones and DNA testing, will have you gripped from start to finish.

Tough, salty and realistic.” Times Literary Supplement

Please note this book was first published as “A Limited Vision”.

AN OFFER TOO GOOD TO BE TRUE

Former police officer-turned-solicitor Eric Ward is recovering from a serious eye operation when the offer comes in.

Come down to London.

Help Philip Scarn, a successful entrepreneur, break into the North East.

Get paid handsomely doing it.

On the journey, Ward is nearly killed. At the other end of a phone call, a shadowy voice warns this is just the beginning.

Then a young woman is murdered. Ward finds himself caught up in a turf war between gangs as he races to prevent another killing.

Is an old enemy from his policing days on his tail? Or is this something to do with Scarn?

Can Eric Ward discover his enemies when what’s preventing him from seeing them has nothing to do with his eyes?

This fast-paced mystery will have you enthralled from the start. Set in England in the early 1980s, this is the third book to feature Eric Ward. More coming soon.

DISCOVER YOUR NEXT FAVOURITE MYSTERY WRITER

Perfect for fans of Peter James, Ruth Rendell, P.D. James and Peter Robinson.

THE DETECTIVE
Eric Ward is forced to retire from the police when he discovers he suffers from glaucoma but qualifies as a solicitor (lawyer) and sets up his practice on the Quayside in Newcastle, where he deals with the seamier side of the law. When he marries a wealthy young woman she attempts to persuade him to settle in Northumberland and work with wealthier clients but he stubbornly refuses to give up his criminal practice in Newcastle. Although she draws him into the world of high finance he still insists on continuing at the Quayside — which causes tensions within his marriage, and lead to fatal consequences.

Roy Lewis is one of the most critically acclaimed crime writers of his generation.

“Roy Lewis is a writer who believes in keeping his readers on their toes with plenty of twists and surprises. He writes well, too with an admirable sense of character and place.” Daily Telegraph

Good on atmosphere.” Newcastle Journal

“A wrenching and compassionately handled tragedy that transcends the conventional mystery form.” Chicago Sun-Times

Tightly written, well-paced and relentlessly accurate.” Oxford Times
