Read Duffy by Dan Kavanagh é PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB free Me shady characters from his past Duffy discover that while things have changed in the years since he was working the area the streets are still mean and the crooks walk arm in arm with the bluesFull to bursting with sex violence and dodgy dealings DUFFY is a gripping and entertaining crime novel with a distinctly different and entirely lovable anti hero. Duffy the first novel in a British PI series from author Dan Kavanagh caught my attention mainly because Kavanagh is the pen name for none other than Julian Barnes and when you consider how serious his recent novel is you realise that an author s writing life consists of very specific phases I ve been a fan of Barnes for many years loved Flaubert s Parrot and Staring at the Sun so Julian Barnes writing a crime series I m in The series was published back in the 80s and that probably explains why the tone reminded me so much of Before She Met Me a Barnes novel published back in 1982 Duffy begins very strongly with a bizarre home invasion Mrs McKechnie a middle class woman who would seem to have no enemies whatsoever is tied up and cut by two men It s a very professional job except for what happens to the cat and the incident seems to be a message for Brian McKechnie a London businessman who sells party items at his drab little London office Under the threat of additional violence McKechnie is then systematically sueezed for cash it seems to be a case of blackmail as the perps know that McKechnie s mistress who doubled as his secretary but if it s simple blackmail then why the home invasion and the violence towards McKechnie s innocent albeit dull wife The local Guildford police are mystified by the case and consider the incident the work of a maniac pair of maniacs while the London police obviously don t give a toss Enter PI Duffy a bisexual ex copper set up on vice charges and drummed out of the force in disgraceLife for Duffy has been going downhill since he left the force He s hobbled together a PI firm that mostly dabbles in petty jobs and while he manages to pay the rent his relationship with his girlfriend Carol never recovered When he s contacted by McKechnie to investigate the identity of the man behind the pressure Duffy steps back to Soho on to his old turf hookers peep shows porno films and porn mag shops and once Duffy starts digging he realizes that his unresolved past is connected to the McKechnie caseIn spite of its subject matter Duffy has a light ironic and amusing tone This is partly Kavanagh s style but it s also the colorful characters who step across Duffy s path Everyone in the sex biz is a professional here and that includes an aging workhorse hooker and a motley bunch of peep show girls and there s even a gang boss whose taste for decorating could be amusing if he weren t so vicious Duffy once worked vice but now he s just another customer cruising through the tacky sex shops of Soho where sex isn t glamorous or even exciting it s just damn hard work If you re the type who s offended by the Blue World then this is not a book for you if however you have no problem with Duffy attending and sharing details of peep shows and moronic porn films then you may enjoy this off beat PI taleAt one point Duffy sits in on a porn film and his description of the thin ridiculous plot is really very funny but best of all for this reader is Duffy s explanations for just how a copper becomes corrupt Still every year around the Golden Mile brought different temptations He knew how it happened you didn t take the free booze even if everyone else did you didn t take the first girl you got offered you turned down the smokes and the snort and then something uite trivial happened like you asked for a couple of days to pay at the bookie s uite suddenly the place had got you It wasn t necessarily that there was a particular gang always on the look out to bend coppers though sometimes there was it was somehow the place that got you It was one suare mile of pressure and everyone had a weak pointDuffy a man with a fetish for neatness makes an interesting series character He knows how to BS the punters who want all the bells and whistles of PI work but nevertheless he takes his job very seriously The novel argues that working vice stepping in a world in which every imaginable desire is for sale is a corrupting environment which will stain any copper who lingers there long enough

Dan Kavanagh À 5 Read

Read Duffy by Dan Kavanagh é PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB free Ual ex policeman with a phobia of ticking watches and a penchant for Tupperware But what he lacks in orthodoxy he makes up for in street smart savvy and no nonsense dealings Intrigued by McKechnie's dilemma and the apparent incompetency of his ex colleagues Duffy heads to his old patch the seedy underbelly of Soho to begin inuiries of his ownHelped by so. Enjoyable stuff I picked it because the author is a pseudonym of Julian Barnes whose Sense of an Ending I loved so much recently This is uite a tame affair which I ought to have expected from a literary author but was a tad disappointing for a crime novel Some great characters though and an interesting plot though the ending felt rather rushed
