The South East London police squad are down and out: Detective Sergeant Brant is in hot water for assaulting a police shrink, Chief Inspector Roberts' wife has died in a horrific car accident, and WPC Falls is still figuring out how to navigate her job as a black female investigator in the notorious unit. When a serial killer takes his show on the road, things get worse for all three. Nicknamed "The Blitz" by the rabid London media, the killer is aiming for tabloid immortality by killing copsin different beats around the city.

Blitz represents Ken Bruen at his edgy, lethal, and sharp-tongued best, and will reward fans of his Jack Taylor novels with another astonishing, smart, and brutal vision from a writer rapidly becoming one of the best of his generation.

Other: Drug use: one character becomes addicted to hard drugs. Dirty cops: some of the cops use their positions as police officers to garner favors and benefits for themselves.

Violence: The book is about a serial cop killer and some of the details for the killings are pretty graphic.

I really enjoyed this story. I recently saw the movie and wanted to read the book it was based on. I thought they both were very good. I didn't realize Brant was a recurring character until I finished the book. Now I need to find the first three.
