"Harvey's police procedurals are in a class by themselves--near Dickensian in their portrayal of human frailty, cinematic in their quick changes of scene and character, totally convincing in their plotting and motivation."-- Kirkus Reviews

Grice and Grabianski are an ill-matched pair of burglars working Charlie Resnick's patch. When they break into the house of television director Harold Roy, they get more than they bargained for. Grabianski falls in love--or is it lust--with the director's wife, and the pair become enmeshed in a dangerous plot to sell the cocaine that was in the safe back to its supplier.

A willing victim complicates a case for Detective Charlie Resnick, "one of the most fully realized characters in modern crime fiction" (Sue Grafton).
Maria Roy is in the tub, musing on her hatred for her movie producer husband, when Grabianski and Grice break into her house. Though she is fearful at first, something about Jerry Grabianski's confidence calms her down. Over tall glasses of Scotch, she directs them to her valuables—jewelry, bonds, her wedding tape—even doing them the favor of unlocking her husband's safe. There Grabianski finds a surprise: a kilo of cocaine. He leaves with the drugs, the valuables, and a piece of Maria's heart.

This is not the story she tells to police inspector Charlie Resnick, but Maria's confusion makes the disheveled detective doubt her account of the robbery. As he combs Nottingham for the burglars, Maria and Jerry's love affair charges ahead. She is about to learn that not even love can keep crime from turning bloody.
