Inspector Brant must draw on all of his ruthlessness, street smarts, and skills as an investigator as he and his team with the Southeast London police squad pursue The Vixen, a sensuous, psychopathic, female serial killer who has been setting off a series of lethal explosions across the city of London. Original. 20,000 first printing.

McMillan Palgrave

For the Southeast London police squad, it's rough, tough, dirty business as usual. The Vixen, the most sensuous, crazed female serial killer ever, is masterminding a series of lethal explosions. She is unpredictable, wild, angry--and the cops don't even know she exists.

Meanwhile, Inspector Roberts is helpless to stop the explosions and his subordinates aren't doing much better. Brant is consumed with an even-bigger-than-usual mean streak, and fast-rising Porter Nash finds himself facing serious health problems--everything to do with needles. PC MacDonald is determined to soldier on, whatever the cost, and the career of a new addition to the squad, WPC Andrews, starts spectacularly but with Falls as her mentor she's not expected to last long. At the top, Superintendent Brown is close to a coronary, and arresting the wrong man in a blaze of publicity is only the beginning of his problems.

If the squad survives this incendiary installment in Ken Bruen's blazingly intense series, they'll do so with barely a cop left standing.

For the Southeast London police squad, it's rough, tough, dirty business as usual. The Vixen, a sensuous, crazed female serial killer, is masterminding a series of lethal explosions across London. She is unpredictable, wild, angry - and the cops don't even know she exists. Inspector Brant is consumed by a bigger-than-usual mean streak, fueled by the arrest of the wrong man in the case, and his colleagues are ducking their heads anytime they're unfortunate enough to catch his eye. He's the best cop in town by far, but it'll take all of Brant's street smarts, and his notorious lack of any ethical boundaries, to catch this killer. If the squad survives this incendiary installment in Ken Bruen's blazingly intense series, they'll do so with barely a cop left standing.

Bruen with his Brant invention is again making this book not a page turner, but a page burner. Fast, funny, and totally entertaining, Brant is a must read.
