When a seventeen-year-old Moldovan boy is found dead on Hampstead Heath, the case falls to DCI Karen Shields and her overstretched Homicide & Serious Crime team. Karen knows she needs a result. What she doesn't know is that her new case is tied inextricably to a much larger web of gang warfare and organised crime which infiltrates almost every aspect of London society, from the back streets and high rises of Tottenham to the multi-million pound hideaways of the new international entrepreneurs.

Several hundred miles away in Cornwall, DI Trevor Cordon is stirred from his day-to-day duties by another tragic London fatality. Travelling to the capital, determined to establish the cause of death and trace the deceased's daughter - an old acquaintance from Penzance - Cordon becomes entangled in a lethally complex situation of his own. A situation much closer to Karen's case than either of them can imagine ...

Brilliantly plotted and filled with rich, subtle characters, John Harvey's latest novel reveals him once again as a masterful writer with his finger firmly on the pulse of twenty-first century crime.

"Just when you thought Harvey couldn't get any better, up he pops with yet another brilliantly constructed, coolly written, chillingly sharp and utterly contemporary procedural."
Daily Mirror

"John Harvey returns in resounding form."
The Times

"John Harvey is not just a fine crime novelist but a fine writer, and an adornment to his chosen genre. I devoured GOOD BAIT in a day, and defy any reader to do otherwise.Great stuff."
John Connolly

"This is the latest from a veteran crime fiction writer...who never fails to deliver the goods... Intricate, character-driven plotting and a large canvas full of telling detail lift this above the average police procedural."
Guardian

"As ever, John Harvey's writing is cool, light, and beautiful. His combination of darkest emotion, present-day concerns, and simple human wanting, where everything isn't tied up neatly at the end, and pain goes on beyond the end of the novel - because it always does - is flawless."
