Product description

Review

In all his [Hurley] books, the humanity of his police officers is as important as their ingenuity as detectives, in fact it is their sensitivity that makes this thriller... admirable rather than tasteless... the second in the new series, is as thought-provoking and vivid as his previous writings (LITERARY REVIEW)

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)

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. (SUNDAY MIRROR)

TOUCHING DISTANCE is a storming read and is yet another fantastic addition to an already addictive series (CRIMESQUAD)

In all his [Hurley] books, the humanity of his police officers is as important as their ingenuity as detectives, in fact it is their sensitivity that makes this thriller... admirable rather than tasteless... the second in the new series, is as thought-provoking and vivid as his previous writings. (LITERARY REVIEW)

"TOUCHING DISTANCE is a storming read and is yet another fantastic addition to an already addictive series." (CRIMESQUAD)

TOUCHING DISTANCE is quite simply the best crime book I have read this year. Hurley puts his readers centre-stage in a labyrinthine investigation. He draws you in and makes you feel like one of the players. Brilliantly done! (Peter May, author of THE BLACK HOUSE)

A superbly thrilling ride through the ebbs and flows of an investigation. With TOUCHING DISTANCE Hurley proves he's in the top rank of British procedurals. Lean, dark and with plenty of heart (Stav Sherez)

His ability to create cracking plots involving charactersso real they leap off the pages, has established Hurley as a Top 10 writer of darkly moody crime thrillers... a dangerous puzzle that explodes in a page-ripping hostage climax. (PETERBOROUGH EVENING TELEGRAPH)

Book Description
