Baker & Taylor
Retired Detective Inspector Frank Elder struggles with guilt when his teenage daughter deteriorates into reckless behavior following a rape that he could have prevented, while Detective Sergeant Maddy Birch becomes increasingly uneasy in her suspicions that she is being stalked. By the author of Lonely Hearts.

Blackwell North Amer
In the depths of his Cornish hideaway, retired Detective Inspector Frank Elder's solitary life is disturbed by a call from his estranged wife, telling him his seventeen-year-old daughter, Katherine, is running wild, unbalanced by the abduction and rape he feels he should have prevented. Meanwhile, in the heart of London, the takedown of a violent criminal goes badly, and Detective Sergeant Maddy Birch is uneasy about the reasons why, an uneasiness that is compounded when she starts to believe she is being stalked.

Maddy and Frank have a connection, a brief and clumsy encounter years before that has left a trace of lingering regret. In Ash & Bone their lives connect again when a second phone call persuades the unsettled, unhappy Elder out of retirement, only to find that a cold case has a devastating present-day impact.

Great characters and plots. I am now hooked on John Harvey books.
