Publisher's Summary

On New Year’s Day, a wealthy family is found slaughtered inside their exclusive gated community in north London, their youngest child stolen away. The murder weapon is a gun for stunning cattle, leading Detective Max Wolfe to a dusty corner of Scotland Yard’s Black Museum devoted to a killer who thirty years ago was known as the Slaughter Man. But the Slaughter Man is now old and dying. Can he really be back in the game?

Extreme gore, torture, and abuse

Extreme violence and sexual abuse of women and children, plus detailed descriptions of torture -- and a likable little girl and adorable dog thrown in as palate cleansers between the scenes of gore. To me, this is just lazy, uninteresting writing driven by the easy shock "value" of ultraviolence. I like a bit of gore as much as anyone, but in small doses it can be more interesting and more shocking than lots and lots of goriness. The unknown and the unspoken can be way more terrifying. For example, see the movie "The Conversation" and the witty, character- and plot-driven crime novels of Adrian McKinty and Patricia Highsmith.

Fine sequel to "The Murder Bag"

Very good series developing here, with multifaceted central character and solid writing. Keeping an eye on Tony Parsons - I expect even better things to come from him. Well worth the credit.
