Western Approaches by Graham Hurley

Continuing the Faraday series (Farady now long gone) with Jimmy Suttle as protagonist and having moved to Devon, this book does not disappoint. A great police procedural and some ‘human drama’ behind the story. The only negative thing to say is that there were a disappointing number of typos – it really could have done with better proof-reading.

This classic book, written in 1939, didn’t do much for me I’m sorry to say. Having read the book I turned to the Introduction in my 2014 edition (that would have served better as a postscript or similar) and learned a lot more about it. I still wasn’t overly impressed. I found various parts to be implausible and found the main character’s actions disappointing.
