The Order of Things

By Graham Hurley

  • Paperback
  • £9.99

The fourth novel in the Jimmy Suttle series, this is the latest novel from 'one of the UK's finest crime novelists' (INDEPENDENT ON SUNDAY)

The fourth novel in the Jimmy Suttle series, this is the latest novel from one of the UK's finest crime writers.

'There is no-one writing better police procedurals today' Sunday Telegraph

D/S Jimmy Suttle is called to a brutal murder in the picturesque Devon village of Lympstone. Harriet Reilly, a local GP, has been found disembowelled in the bedroom of her partner, climate scientist Alois Bentner.

Suttle's estranged wife, Lizzie, has abandoned Portsmouth, moved to Exeter and returned to journalism, hearing rumours of a local GP offering mercy killings to patients meeting certain criteria. The name of the GP is Harriet Reilly.

So begins two investigations of the same crime. Operation Buzzard, with D/S Suttle at its heart, and Lizzie, piecing together her own version of the events that led to Harriet Reilly's death.

The fourth novel in the Jimmy Suttle series is a story of ultimate betrayal, reaching much further and wider than its Devon roots.

Superior crime fiction — India Knight, Sunday Times
There is no-one writing better police procedurals today. — Sunday Telegraph
Graham Hurley's determination to look the seamy reality full in the face is refreshing because it is so rare ... Hurley's devastating account of Suttle's marriage is one of the best things he has done. — Daily Telegraph
'This book more than lives up to the previous three. It succeeds on several levels. It is a superb police procedural... it is a very cleverly manipulated whodunnit, with a trickle-down conclusion that contains one final twist; away from the police station, we have some memorable characters who are convincing if not always likable; and lastly we have one of the nastiest and most menacing villains that you are likely to encounter.' — CRIME FICTION LOVER
Hurley writes inch-perfect, matter-of-fact police procedurals, but he peoples them with an almost Dickensian cast that set the books way above most of his peers. — Sharon Wheeler, CRIMEREVIEW
A pleasurably intricate plot leads to a satisfying grotesque resolution, further enhancing the reputation of one of Britain's best-ever police procedural writers. — Mat Coward, MORNING STAR
There are some mighty subjects explored here within the context of a brilliant police procedural thriller... wrapped up in a typically tight and gripping plot. — PETERBOROUGH EVENING TELEGRAPH
This is an excellent police procedural mystery with an intricate plot... Hurley gets better and better with every new title. Superb. — CRIMESQUAD

Matthew is in prison . . . but he maintains he is innocent.Robert Ferringham, whose book about grieving his missing wife, Sam, propelled him into the public eye, is contacted by Matthew seeking help with his case and the intrigue of these missing people pulls him to Huddersfield to investigate.

Flowers Over the Inferno

Ilaria Tuti

Ilaria Tuti

In a quiet village surrounded by centuries-old woods and the imposing Italian Alps, a series of violent assaults take place. Police inspector and profiler Teresa Battaglia is called back from the city when the first body is found in the woods, a naked man whose face has been disfigured and eyes gouged out. Teresa quickly realises that the killer intends to strike again, and soon more victims are found - all having been subjected to horrendous mutilations. When a new-born baby is kidnapped, Teresa's investigation becomes a race against the clock...But Teresa is also fighting a different kind of battle: a battle against her own body, weighed down by age and diabetes, and her mind, once invincible and now slowly gnawing away at her memory...Something devastating has taken place here in these mountains. Something that requires all my investigative abilities. My name is Teresa Battaglia, I am a police chief inspector, specialised in profiling, and I walk through hell every day. It's not my gun, nor my uniform: my real weapon is my mind. Yet my mind is failing me. Not my body, weathered by the passing of time, nor my tormented heart. My name is Teresa Battaglia, I have a secret that I dare not reveal even to myself, and for the first time in my life I am afraid".(p) Orion Publishing Group 2019

NO ONE KNOWS THE MIND OF A KILLER LIKE EMMA KAVANAGH.How do you solve a puzzle when there are no pieces? When an attractive, well-dressed woman is found dying on a Chelsea street, it seems clear to DS Thea Walsh that this murder will be one that is wrapped up quickly. The policing murder manual describes the golden hour, that window in time in which the most critical information can be gathered and they have the best start. The witness who found her reacted quickly and respected the crime scene. And then there is the victim herself. She is wearing a wedding ring and has recently had a child, so someone will be looking for her. She is, to all intents and purposes, the perfect victim. Until she isn't. Because what if your perfect victim has no name? What if the woman that everyone should be looking for, can't be found?(p) Orion Publishing Group 2019
