Review by jan.fleming
Even darker and grittier than its predecessor. I am rather taken by the lumbering gentle giant that is Aector McAvoy with his traveller wife and his innate sense of justice. Trish Pharoah as his boss is beautifully drawn- brash, witty, ambitious and funny as hell. A tightly plotted, multi layered story that keeps you reading well into the night.
