Describing London police detective Nick Belsey, hero of The Hollow Man, an enthrallingly original thriller from British crime novelist Oliver Harris - the Daily Mail declared, "He's got to be London's coolest cop." Crime fiction fans are sure to agree, especially those hooked on the novels of Ian Rankin, Peter Robinson, Mark Billingham, and Jo Nesbø. The first book in a series of tense and twisting police procedurals, The Hollow Man starts with Belsey at rock bottom, and then embroils him in a brazen identity theft scam and possible murder that could leave him either wealthy or dead. It's time to discover Oliver Harris, a new master of noir who's destined to be a big man at the scene of the crime.

"The narrative is buoyed by good writing and piercing insights ... And is our heel-hero really a study in conflict or a have-it-both-ways fraud, true blue under a raffish surface? That's the real puzzle, and one thoughtful readers will relish." - Booklist
"A twisting spiral of lies and corruption, a pitch-perfect portrait of contemporary London, and a beguiling bastard of a herowhat a recipe for a great read." - Val McDermid, author of The Mermaids Singing
