The last words Norma Snape said to her youngest that Thursday: "You let me get my hands on you, you little tripeshanks, and I'll wring your miserable neck!" (from the first line)
The best--and most challenging--book in the Charles Resnick series.
From the Publisher:

?John Harvey, British poet and novelist, brings depth of character study and beautiful imagery to the police procedural.??The Washington Post

Why would a fifteen-year-old boy commit suicide? Despite the fact that he?s a no-good kid on trial for bludgeoning an elderly couple to death. But when the senior investigating officer is then found brutally murdered, DI Charlie Resnick is put on the case, which leads to sinister and startling revelations. It also brings Resnick into contact with Hannah Campbell, with whom he finds himself falling unexpectedly and awkwardly in love.

Annotation:
Shortly after his 15th birthday, young miscreant Nicky Snape is found dead from hanging in the juvenile detention home where he is being held. Usually a petty thief, it seems that this time Nicky had gotten in way over his head.

Praise

New York Times Book Review
"The characters in John Harvey's urban crime novels are so defiantly alive and unruly that they put these British police procedurals on a shelf all by themselves. The author animates an entire family in 'Easy Meat', studying them in obsessive detail to determine what makes them the way they are....Mr. Harvey writes with painful urgency about the kind of sexual and psychological abuse that no child can completely outgrow. If this is one of Mr. Harvey's darkest books, it is also one of his most enlightened." - Marilyn Stasio 09/29/1996

Kirkus Reviews
"Without question, 'Easy Meat' is John Harvey's best."

Literary Review
"Pacey, sober and compassionate, with a feeling for here and now authentic enough to pack in a time capsule...A terrific return to form by Harvey." - Philip Oakes October/1996
