In a grimy flat in the city of Cork, a man lies dead. His face is unrecognisable: seven gunshots have shattered cartilage and bone. Yet DS Katie Maguire, of the Irish Garda, knows exactly who he is. Amir Xaaji Maxamed, an evil man who trafficked young girls to be sold for sex. When a second pimp is killed, Katie must decide. Are these vigilante murders justified? And can she stop them spiralling out of control?
"One of the most original and frightening storytellers of our time" (Peter James)
"This is Graham Masterton’s third novel featuring Irish detective Katie Maguire. A natural storyteller with a unique gift for turning the mundane into the terrifyingly real." ( New York Journal of Books)

Have a strong stomach and a sense of humour
I really like the narrator, she makes Katie Maguire come to life, and transports you to Ireland. I enjoy the rather gory macabre type of criminal detective work and how the baddie "gets it" in the end. But thats my preference.
If you enjoy Stuart Macbride then you will enjoy this series. Start at the first book though, it introduces the characters. Make sure you have eaten first, unless you are on a diet. It puts you off your food a bit.
The story should have stayed with the murders and not splayed off onto the supposedly sexual life of the police woman.
No but the reading was fine.
I would have cut out all the stupidity, e.g. there is no need for the boyfriend to say he had taken the dog out and it had done it's business! Also there were parts of the book that could never have been true in a murder scene, there were too many anomalies. It seemed that the writer kept going off into a 'coronation street' mode, with the listener often feeling as if the book had, now and again, to be aimed at those who read Mills & Boom!
