Wasted Years - A DI Charlie Resnick Novel - BBC Radio Audiobook 2006 - Episode 1 of 10.
Philip Jackson reads John Harvey`s 1993 crime novel, featuring Detective Inspector Charlie Resnick.
A series of brutal robberies takes Detective Inspector Charlie Resnick back ten years. To a time when a rash of very similar incidents left him face to face with a frenzied sociopath who nearly brought his life to a premature end... and to a time when his wife ran off with her lover, putting paid to their marriage and leaving him with a psychic wound that still hasn't healed. Now with the look-alike robberies escalating in violence, Resnick fights to track the men down before they kill, just as he fights to stem the poignant memories that threaten to overwhelm him. (The fifth book in the Resnick series)
Charlie Resnick is a Detective Inspector in the English City of Nottingham. Working with a small team of officers from a sub-station on the outskirts of the city centre, his patch containing both the highly expensive and huge Victorian houses of a private estate, The Park, and the more run-down areas around the Alfreton Road.
John Harvey is best known for his richly praised sequence of ten Nottingham-based Charlie Resnick novels, the first of which, Lonely Hearts, was recently chosen by The Times as one of the `100 Best Crime Novels of the Century`.
Harvey was recently honoured by The Crime Writers’ Association with the award of its Cartier Diamond Dagger for 2007. The presentation of the award, made for sustained excellence in the genre of crime writing, was made by M. Arnaud Bamberger of Cartier and took place at a champagne reception at the Savoy Hotel in early May 2007.
John Harvey is also a poet, dramatist and broadcaster. After living in Nottingham for a good number of years, he has now returned to London to live with his partner and their young daughter.
