Gritty Crime Story...beautifully written...5*

Douthwaite tells a gritty crime story, thoroughly grounded in reality and generously peppered with unrelenting sardonic wit. There are no white hats in this one, only shades of grey and black. The Sweet Smell of Rain is a brilliant portrayal of flawed humanity at it's finest and worst, warts and all, but beautifully written. I always wondered what colossal screw ups were behind all those dry sanitised Police reports. Now I know.
