A Man of Sorrows
By James Craig
The sixth in the thrilling Inspector Carlyle crime series set in the heart of London's West End taking in all the memorable places like Covent Garden, Piccadilly Circus and the British Museum.
Hunting down a paeodophile priest, Carlyle finds himself up against his old adversary Christian Holyrod. The Mayor of London is responsible for hosting an upcoming visit by the Pope and does not want any more scandals involving the Catholic church. Carlyle, however, is not prepared to let crimes side, putting him on a collision course with both the mayor and the church.
Without his sympathetic boss, Carole Simpson, to protect him, could this be the end of the line for Carlyle? Never one to fight only one battle at a time, he also has to deal with an armed robbery at an upscale jewellers in Mayfair... and a serious health scare for Helen, his wife.
James Craig was born in Scotland but moved down South early on in his life. Like his protagonist he lives in central London with his wife and daughter. He supports Liverpool FC.
