When a seventeen-year-old Moldovan boy is found dead on Hampstead Heath, the case falls to DCI Karen Shields and her overstretched Homicide & Serious Crime team. Karen knows she needs a result. What she doesn't know is that her new case is tied to a much larger web of gang warfare and organised crime which infiltrates almost every aspect of London society. Several hundred miles away In Cornwall, DI Trevor Cordon is stirred from his day-to-day duties by another tragic London fatality. Travelling to the capital, Cordon becomes entangled in a lethally complex situation of his own. A situation much closer to Karen's case than either of them can imagine ...

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Just when you thought that Harvey couldn't get any better, up he pops with yet another brilliantly constructed, coolly written, chillingly sharp and utterly contemporary procedural." -- Henry Sutton * Daily Mirror *
"John Harvey is not just a fine crime novelist but a fine writer, and an adornment to his chosen genre. I devoured Good Bait in a day, and defy any reader to do otherwise.Great stuff." -- John Connolly
"John Harvey returns in resounding form ... Terrific plot and, in Karen Shields, a splendid new heroine." -- Marcel Berlins * The Times *
"Intricate, character-driven plotting and a large canvas full of telling detail lift this above the average police procedural." -- Laura Wilson * Guardian *
"John Harvey shows he is one of the best crime writers around: perhaps even Britain's answer to the great Elmore Leonard" * Mail on Sunday *
