In Easy Meat John Harvey probes some of the most intractable social problems of our age--writing with the same concern for character, story and style that led Jim Harrison to say, There's an improbable technical grace to Harvey's work, and Elmore Leonard to conclude, He reminds me of Graham Greene.

A teenage thug goes to prison when a simple robbery turns bloody Nicky Snape likes robbing old people. The fifteen-year-old snatches shirts from stores, purses from his teachers, and as much money as he can lift from his mother. But for an easy score he knows no better target than the elderly. When he sneaks into the home of Eric and Doris Netherfield, his footsteps wake the old couple. With a piece of steel railing he keeps by the bed for protection, Eric attempts to defend his home. He fails. Nicky fights back, battering them both to within an inch of their lives.   Nottingham police inspector Charlie Resnick knows Nicky Snape, and doesn't hesitate to arrest him. But what should be the end of the crime is only the beginning, as Snape's arrest sparks a chain reaction of rape, suicide, and murder.
