Praised for their riveting, ingenious plot twists, John Lawton's series of espionage thrillers featuring Chief Inspector Frederick Troy of Scotland Yard have an uncanny ability to place readers in the thick of history. Now in 'Flesh Wounds', an old flame has returned to Troy's life: Kitty Stilton, wife of an American presidential hopeful. Private eye Joey Rork has been hired to make sure Kitty's amorous liaisons with a rat pack crooner don't ruin her husband's political career. But he also wants to know why Kitty has been spotted with Danny Ryan, whose twin brothers, in addition to owning one of London's hottest jazz clubs, are said to have inherited the crime empire of fallen mobster Alf Marx. Before Rork can find out, he meets a gruesome end. And he isn't the only one: bodies have started turning up around London, dismembered in the same bizarre and horrifying way. Is it possible that the blood trail leads back to Troy's own police force and into Troy's own forgotten past? 'Flesh Wounds', a compulsively readable thriller, finds one of our most able storytellers at the height of his game.… (mais)

Are the Ryan twins modeled after the Kray twins? Seems like it. ( )

Couldn't get in to this one. Story just never seemed to develop. Quit ar end of tape one. ( )

Very slow beginning. Lawton has replaced finesse with violence and sex. ( )

This is one of the most fascinating series of books I've ever read, and I recommend it highly. The setting is London, mostly from 1940 until 1960, but little in the series is chronological. Books overlap, and sometimes leapfrog the timelines of subsequently published books, resulting in several teasers, and even enhancing books you've already read. So a reference may be made to a famous arrest following a gunbattle that happened prior to the storyline of a book, but the details may not happen, in "real" time until a subsequent book. And it works ! I have to refrain from reading the remaining books in the series to see how everything plays out. Before engaging this series, I would often complain about books relying on flashbacks, back and forth, back and forth - seemed gimmicky, but lawton's storytelling takes timelines to a whole new levels. The ultimate is reading a subsequent book and having a character introduced who you know is going to die. And the writing is just excellent. Lots of atmosphere, complex plots mixing, politics, history, sex, and crime. And some of the most incredible scenes take place in a cemetery. My next read, which will be my third, is the first book. Got it? Not easy to get, ordered it secondhand.... ( )
