Just finished Robbie's Wife by Russell Hill, a Hard Case Crime book. Quick review. A man's obsession turns to murder. The first half of the book nothing happens. The reader soon realizes that the American man in the story is actually English, but this has nothing to do with the book. Then, BAM! His slow descent into hell. Just the way I like it. 3 out of 5 bullets!
I just got a copy of The Hackman's Blues by Ken Bruen. Purchased on eBay from a seller in the U.K. called Fairandfast Bookshop. I highly recommend them.
