John Harvey - Resnick news

It seems a number of series are finishing up at the moment, including John Harvey's Charlie Resnick series (though Cold in Hand broke my heart). From The Bookseller:
William Heinemann has signed a final book featuring Charlie Resnick from crime writer John Harvey. Cornerstone m.d. Susan Sandon aquired UK and Commonwealth rights.

The novel, Darkness, Darkness, is set in Nottingham, and sees Resnick revisiting a cold case focused around the 1984 miner's strike.

Sandon said: "John lived and worked in Nottingham during the strike and witnessed the strife first hand.  His depiction of the violence and anger which not only divided a community but set brothers, husbands , wives and entire families against one another is both wholly authentic and riveting. I’m extremely sad to know that this is Resnick’s last appearance."

Darkness, Darkness will be published in hardback in May 2014 to coincide with the 30th anniversary of  the strike. It will be published as a paperback in autumn 2014 by Arrow.
