... Flesh and Blood by British writer, John Harvey. OK, it was a thriller, a good one, of the British kind.
I mention it mainly as John Harvey is a poet and was also the editor of an English poetry mag called Slow Dancer, which was the first overseas journal to publish me way back in the late 1980s. I was published there about three times between 1988 and 1991. The mag folded in the 1990s.
When I saw the book, I had to buy it and have a read.
