I read two crime books (there may be more by the author) in the 1980s.

The titles were just year dates. I think one was 1975, the other 1982 (not entirely sure of the exact title dates).

They were fictional crime novels that included corrupt coppers. The books were written, in the main part, as dialogue only. It was a little like reading a film/play script.

They were excellent - gripping and atmospheric which was very clever considering there was very little in the way of descriptive prose.

I can't for the life of me remember the author's name or any further details. Typing the year dates into Amazon or Google has got me nowhere. Does anyone know of the books by my meagre description?

Many thanks.

I was thinking of David Peace's books but I think I'm wrong.

Desmond Bagley I think, also did the tightrope Man x
No I've just checked his bibliography I'm getting him mixed up with someone else, he did The tightrope Men and I read them at around the same time. I'll ask my Mum they were her books lol x
I must admit Mamya,I doubted myself that much I ought to have checked!
I must apologise for not seeing your answer Ag, well done.
No probs Mamya ;-)
