Bill James (1929-) is the author of numerous thrillers and crime novels as well as a critical work on Anthony Powell. His work is much loved and critically acclaimed; the Sunday Telegraph describes him as 'bruisingly good' and The Times as 'subtle and riveting to the last page'.

Bill James, with his daughter, Rachel, has done something truly . Really enjoyed this book about early serial killing and gives the reader solid proof that the killer is whom the book reveals as the killer.

Bill James, with his daughter, Rachel, has done something truly extraordinary. Bill James is my idol, if I could seriously have one. Although I hate where baseball managers and GMs have taken this stuff as much as I hate where evangelists have taken the Bible, Bill James has been responsible for my career in baseball statistics. When he admitted his love of true crime I was staggered, it being my secret vice.

Bill James has been called "the Elmore Leonard of Britain's underworld" . Kill Me Harpur & Iles Mysteries, Bill James.

James is concerned with the dilemmas and difficulties of policing Britain's inner cities, and he addresses these in hard-edged narratives that leave readers gasping and flinching, praying the people in these stories never come to live in their streets  .

If Eton Crop (1999) was the slack-paced setup, this is the payoff come to a rolling boil and served up with James's strident sense of drama. Still in place at the fashionable Eton, undercover . Naomi Anstruther barely escapes with her life when a ned drug intercept fails, the bad guys get away, and two of her former lovers on the scene are killed. Esme, also an ex-lover of one of the fallen, nudges Naomi to seek vengeance, but before Naomi is onboard, Esme's been tortured and killed.

A woman and her stepson are gunned down while driving to school on a quiet residential street. An former bodyguard kills himself by firing two pistols simultaneously. Was the killer really aft er the woman's husband, the notorious drug baron Mansel Shale? And what possible connection could Shale's collection of pre-Raphaelite works of art have to the killings? Nothing in Bill James's latest Harpur & Iles thriller is as it seems

"[A] terrific series.... Get these books; settle into peril and chaos."―Bloomsbury Review

Naomi Anstruther's undercover operation among the drug gangs, planned carefully by Detective Chief Superintendent Colin Harpur, has ended in a bloody shoot-out. Naomi escapes, but both her ex-boyfriend and her current lover―who shouldn't have been there―are dead. Now the biggest danger to Naomi is a young woman named Esme, who believes that she and Naomi should personally avenge Donald's and Lyndon's deaths. "One of the most exquisitely sardonic stylists writing crime fiction today."―Richard Lopez, Washington Post Book World "[A] black and zestful police series.... Matchless stuff by the genre's finest stylist."―Literary Review "One of the most exquisitely sardonic stylists writing crime fiction today."―Richard Lopez, Washington Post Book World "A tremendous writer. . . . Where else can you find a mystery series with as many layers of gorgeous stuff?"―Chicago Tribune "Bill James's Harpur and Iles books are deliciously unsavory.―John Harvey, "The Crime Writer's Crime Writer," The Guardian "[A] brilliantly stylish series of novels .... A unique author who is an acquired habit, but once discovered, impossible to kick."―Daily Express [London], Frances Fyfield "British mystery writing's finest prose stylist...startling, achingly funny and sometimes wholly surreal.... Essential reading."―The Observer [London], Peter Guttridge

"Kill Me" is another Bill James special showing how the class system works in real life . The top police are in cahoots with the drug rackets . The biggest art dealer is a crooked scam artist who rats on people to the police .The top policemen like sec with teenage girls .The working class has only one way to make a big score-- through crime ...Terrific real world books masquerading as mysteries . real 'em all and you'll see how the system really works .

I rated this low, but really the style is just not one I like or can get interested in. I've tried to start reading it twice, and had to set it aside. Just doesn't grab me.
