Summary

Marylebone, November 1968. Detective Sergeant Breen has a death threat and two burned bodies on his hands. One is an un-mourned vagrant; the other the son of a politician. One case suffers the apathy of the police; the other obstructed by a PR-conscious father. Then the potential perpetrator of his death threats is murdered. Banished from a corrupt system, Breen is finally forced to fight fire with fire.

Absorbing

The narration has improved a lot from the first in the series and the writing was better too. I like the characters and the period detail was well done. Would suit anyone who likes PD James and Ian Rankin. Not sure why main character has an Irish accent if he’s never been there though.
