Nothing in Bill James’s latest Harpur & Iles thriller is as it seems. When the police chase the shooting suspect into a busy second-hand shop the action quickly turns into a deadly cat-and-mouse standoff.

Harpur & Iles to uncover a trail of illegal art trading and money laundering. I found I had a flair for tag-along, street level stealth. A Harpur & Iles Mystery - Bill James.

The 24th novel in the Harpur & Iles series follows DCI Harpur into an illicit narcotics ring.

There’s intrigue right from the start of this new entry in Bill James’s Harpur and Iles series: A houseful of paintings is stolen and the body of a finely dressed stranger is discovered. Villainous drug dealers fight for dominance on Constable Iles and Detective Harpur’s turf. While the kingpins maneuver and scheme, Harpur is helped-or hindered?-by his very persistent daughters and by Iles’s irregular and perhaps illicit methods. In this fast-paced thriller, there’s no telling who will catch the next bullet.

Pix, Bill James' continuing stygian, hilarious chronicles of his favorite cops, Harpur and Iles, provide appropriate, cliff-hanging moments that ornament good, tough detective fiction. But, underneath the action,things get even better. James provides his specialty: the satiric exploration of the complex relationship of the villains, the police, the politicians and the good folk of Great Britain. James' masterly dialogue plays like a concerto throughout and ends with two Iles' trademark notes: advancement of the policy of "masterly inactivity" and the reminder that "things are in goodish hands."

I'm a very big admirer of Bill James but although PIX was, as his books always are, wondefully written, cleverly developed, funny and horrifying, it didn't have as much substance as his other books. If I were trying to show someone why I think he's terrific, this isn't the book I would give them to read.

Love the series but it gets too cyclical after a dozen of these books; I still buy them though! If you like the Harpur and Iles series start with the first six or so and only venture out if you get obsessed like I did.

This is not really what one could call a mystery or a police procedural or anything else that's like anything else. The book is really about Mr. James's love affair with the British class system, his character's illusions about themselves and, above all, the English language. His continuing riff (over several chapters) on various people's reactions to a mauve shirt worn tie-less with a classic tailored suit by Mansel Shale to a dinner party astounds and delights, and one quickly realizes that Mr. James is an English prose stylist/satirist in the league of Jane Austen. For rock 'em and sock 'em, visit Ken Bruen; for a couple of hundred pages lived inside the heads of some of the queerest ducks in all England (and Wales), pick up PIX.
