The one that's getting deserved attention, THE MERCY SEAT, kicks off a new series starring journalist Joe Donovan, so it's a great place to start. Otherwise, the Stephen Larkin books are excellent (begin with MARY'S PRAYER) and I have a real soft spot for Waites' larger-themed standalones, BORN UNDER PUNCHES and THE WHITE ROOM, which are less commercial and perhaps a bit unwieldy, grim as all hell but very emotionally effective.

He is truly one of my favorite crime writers right now.


I second that - Waites is excellent and I have a peice on his work currently
