The Cutting Crew - Steve Mosby

Sorry, the book that you are looking for is not available right now.

We did a search for other books with a similar title, and found some results for you that may be helpful.

The small team of policemen never even identified the dead girl and, for the officers involved, her murder came to symbolise everything that was wrong with the city : a haphazard sprawl of commerce and indifference.

Four months on, that group is in disarray. Sean has disappeared into the city's black heart and not returned, and Martin is separated from his job, his wife and his friends. But then a simple note from his ex-partner forces him to re-enter an investigation he'd rather forget. 'I found her', it says.

The search leads him from one side of the city to the other, in a downward spiral of violence and pain, and drags him into the orbit of the things that are really wrong with the city: the eight brothers rumoured by legend to have control over everything.

      Comments about The Cutting Crew:

      Steve Mosby's main character is refreshingly self-depreciating and amusing, as well as being very relatable. The story line is not entirely original (it is a murder mystery/thriller after all) but it reads well and is an enjoyable and at times, suspenseful, book. I think it would appeal to many different audiences, probably not suitable for YA, but everyone else should be able to find something to related to and enjoy about The Cutting Crew.

        Comments about The Cutting Crew:

        This is a cross between a crime novel and a fantasy/fable. Set in an invented world, but the people are close to normal. Gets stranger as it goes on, but is hard to put down nevertheless. The main problem is that I am not sure that the real audience for this novel tends to read... Maybe it would make a better movie???
