There are some marvellous scenes in this book which show another side to Gently himself and show how sheer speed can affect people and make them do things for the adrenaline rush that they would not normally do. When the local force's chief suspect vanishes apparently without trace Gently has to try and work out what is really going on and who is masterminding the activities of the bikers.
I found this book quite disturbing and very dark in places. The way people can be manipulated by others is very well done and I could almost feel the menacing atmosphere while I was reading. If you haven't tried the Gently series because you think it might be too `cosy' then give this book a try as it is far from cosy. There are some very dark undercurrents in the book which are well handled. Throughout the book Gently is his usual imperturbable self, watching and waiting for some small detail to reveal the identity of the murderer.
"So this big-shot screw came down from the Smoke, started making with the action like he could figure the whole deal. There were some sticks going about, he latched hard on them, man. Threw a curve they were the reason of Johnny Lister taking off. First he hung up Sid Bixley, wild keen he was on Sid. But Sid was too good for him, he knew the jazz to hand screws. Then this crazy big-shot goes for Dicky, wild way-out Dicky Deeming, the mostest guy who ever cooled it on a ton plus action . . ."
The story is typical Allan Hunter and moves right along. If you can take a bit of slang, you will greatly enjoy the story as I did.
This book, however, represents a bit of a departure. It's overall memory for me is one of confusion. The movement he's exploring is one that is alien to me. He has rendered the dialogue and psychic landscape of this fringe group and I suppose I have to take it on trust that he's done it accurately.
Long, italicised discursions presuming to enter the minds of an 'everyman' of the type were an unexpected and not altogether welcome innovation in this particular volume.
Having said all that, though, I think most of my objections to this book can be put down to resistance to change. This is a solid effort, well worthy of Hunter and enjoyable, despite all my carping little objections.
