The publication achieved huge local coverage. Local newspaper THE NEWS ran two 2-page spreads on the book with a promotion, Graham was interviewed on PORTSMOUTH TELEVISION and the launch was filmed by local news programme MERIDIAN NEWS. Displays of Graham's photographs of Portsmouth looked fantastic and were a great focal point at the launch.Graham has been doing several talks and book signings locally. In Ottakar's, Portsmouth he is their number 1 seller this week, selling 80 copies of ANGELS PASSING and 60 copies of THE TAKE at one signing event. PRAISE'The often sordid life ofa large British city is caught with pinpoint accuracy, together with a host of realistic characters on both sides of the law. The picture of a society infreefall, littered with wrecked families, drugs and corruption, feels painfully true to life, and the conflicts facing the investigating policemen betraytrue emotion and pathos. this could well be the book that drags Graham Hurley into the rarefied atmosphere of crime bestsellerdom in the wake of IanRankin and Val McDermid.
