A Foul Play Press Book. W. Norton & Company. Not necessarily, thought Harry Devlin as he followed Shaun Quade out of the juvenile court. It was the week before Shaun would make his discovery at St Alwyn’s and Harry had been watching his young client get away with murder – or, at least, with the theft of enough cars to fill a main dealer’s showroom. The prosecutor’s shame-faced application for an adjournment had been rebuffed by the bench and Shaun had pumped Harry’s hand with delight.

Great Series!!!!!

Harry Devlin's a Liverpool lawyer who's also a "recidivist amateur sleuth....as keen on mysteries as some people are on sex." He can't help his passion for solving mysteries: violent or unexpected death has been part of his experience since he was a little boy. In Eve of Destructionit comes to him--improbably--through tape recordings.
Liverpool is "England's largest village" so Devlin's used to running into people he knows. But even he's surprised when a client seeking a divorce plays Devlin tapes he recorded of his wife on the phone with her lover. Devlin recognizes the man's voice and starts his own investigation without telling his client what he knows. Before long everything starts to come out in the wake of brutal murders which point directly at his client.
Devlin's client is a landscaper with a talent for building mazes, and Devlin finds himself lost in a maze of lust and rage. Eve of Destruction is an engaging no-frills mystery with characters you can care about and an enjoyably complex plot.
