Raves and Reviews
"Well-rounded, sympathetic characters have always been a hallmark of Harvey's work, and he's at his best here. The richest character of all is Elder himself, tough on the job but stopped in his tracks by a song."
– Marilyn Stasio, New York Times Book Review
"Harvey’s taut, fast-paced plotting and lean prose lead to a heartbreaking climax. Body & Soul is both a top-notch procedural and a powerful tale of a gulf between a father and daughter — and the ties that can bind them together."
– Seattle Times
"Harvey writes with great power about the disappointments and tragedies of living, and he always digs deep into the emotional recesses of his characters—all of which makes the devastating ending of this remarkable novel all the more powerful."
"A story of deep emotional truth, with good people seeking to restore lost things and regretting their memories. There’s enough tension in this book to please any lover of a good detective story and quality writing that will satisfy general fiction fans."
– Library Journal (starred)
"Harvey’s lean prose and fast pace keep the pages turning. A few terrifying twists up the stakes and a shocking finale will have readers reeling. Procedural fans with a soft spot for P.I. tales will love this, but a father’s love and a young woman trying desperately to crawl out of the darkness and into the light are at the heart of this crackling tale."
– Criminal Element
"Darkly atmospheric, intense, heart-wrenching."
– Publishers Weekly
"Fans of John Harvey’s books are already familiar with his signature sharp dialogue construction and subtle character development. This novel is not an exception. A good read from a master of crime storytelling."
– Mystery Tribune
