From bestselling Ian Rankin, winner of the 1997 CWA Gold Dagger for fiction for Black and Blue the three Jack Harvey novels, gathered together in one omnibus volume.
Withc Hunt, Bleeding Bearts, Blood Hunt. Three thrillers by mega-seller Ian Rankin, writing as Jack Harvey.
'Rankin's ability to create a credible character, delivering convincing dialogue to complement sinister and hard-hitting plots against vividly detailed atmosphere, is simply awesome.' - Time Out.
'His fiction buzzes with energy... Essentially he is a romantic storyteller in the tradition of Robert Louis Stevenson... His prose is as vivid and terse as the next man's yet its flexibility and rhythm give it a potential for lyrical expression which is distinctively Rankin's own... Rankin controls the material with extraordinary authority and even delicacy... Rankin ranks alongside P.D James and Michael Dibdin as Britain's finest detective novelist.' - Scotland on Sunday.
'Rankin's prose is understated, yet his canvas of Scotland's criminal underclass has a panoramic breadth. His ear for dialogue is as sharp as a switchblade. This is, quite simply, crime writing of the highest order.' - Daily Express.

Rankin must be one of the most popular crime writers alive. Here are three novels he wrote under a pseudonym, but his distinctive style and punch-packing plots are unmistakable. In Witch Hunt, MI5, Interpol and Donald Elder come together to track down Witch, a cunning, notorious assassin who has been uncatchable for years - until now. In Bleeding Hearts, hit man Michael Weston thinks the police may be on to him after his last job. And in Blood Hunt, ex-SAS Gordon Reeve's brother is murdered and it looks like whoever did it is now after him: his training might come in handy. (Kirkus UK)
