Fantastic debut novel by crime writer Tony R. Cox! I have had a physical copy for the last week or so and I wish I had waited!
In the late 1960s and early 70s it was perhaps a 'rite of passage' for a young or cub reporter who'd shown some talent to be taken on a 'big story' by the chief crime reporter. The junior's adrenaline, enthusiasm and excitement could be channelled into seeing how major news items are researched and written and, most importantly, how difficult interviews are carried out. For Simon Jardine the sight of his first dead body is the catalyst for a mentoring relationship with the hardened, hard-drinking, hard-grilling crime hack Dave Green, alongside their mutual friend, DJ and part-time private investigator, Tom Freeman.
