    Dear Mark:

    Although John Harvey writes under a slew of pen names his series with Scott Mitchell, a private eye in England, was published as John Harvey: Amphetamines and Pearls (1976) The Geranium Kiss (1976) Junkyard Angel (1977) Neon Madmen (1977) I did not read any of them but they were inspired by the american P.I.

    As said John Harvey is best known for his richly praised sequence of ten Nottingham-based Charlie Resnick novels. However, I also highly recommend his three novels with Frank Elder, an ex-cop from Nottingham.
