I agree that Frank Elder was very well developed... a solitary, retired Detective Inspector in his hide-away in Cornwall... yet his investigative skills are in great demand....
John Harvey also wrote the Charlie Resnick series... they all take place in London. Charlie is less asocial than Frank Elder... and he is a very unique creation in the police-procedural genre.
I highly recommend them.

Mary, Elizabeth Berg just came out with a new book but it wasn't a sequel to "dream when you are feeling blue" It was a book of shortstories about things like "eating whatever you want and women stuff. ha. It was cute and all, not serious like most of her books. Have you read "You all are invited to our home" That is such a winner of a book. A mother is in a iron lung trying to raise a child. I liked the gravedigger's daughter even though it was dysfunction in the real definition. right!
