Publisher's Summary

Summer of love
She made a profit from her youth. She's not beautiful anymore - but she will be young forever.
Called away from his pregnant girlfriend, Detective Sergeant Cathal Breen knows the sight of the murdered prostitute will be with him all his life. But this is what he does: he finds killers. Helen Tozer, more than most, understands why.
Summer of death
The girl they called Julie Teenager had a client list full of suspects, all rich, powerful - and protected. Someone warns off the beat coppers; someone disturbs the crime scene. Breen begins to fear that this is more than the murder of a prostitute. It's political.
Then Helen, with her ex-copper's instincts and fierce moral sense, gets dangerously involved. And Breen knows he has more to lose than ever before. He is about to become a father. He can have no sympathy for the devil.
Breen and Tozer met through murder. They work in a world before forensics or criminal databases, a world that's bigoted and brutal. Tense, dramatic and ingeniously plotted, Sympathy for the Devil is a gripping police thriller that delivers crime with a conscience.

The change of narrator was a mistake

The usual gently compelling story with well drawn characters and satisfying storylines marred by a narrator whose grasp on accents varies from poor to dire. Never have so many English men sounded so Australian! The main protagonist is Irish, or English, or a bit Welsh...
The original narrator was much better
