Publisher's Summary

The fourth novel in the DI Sean Corrigan series - authentic and terrifying crime fiction with a psychological edge by an ex-Met detective. Perfect for fans of Mark Billingham, Peter James and Stuart MacBride.
Guilty or not guilty? A lone vigilante is abducting wealthy Londoners and putting their fate in the hands of the public. Within hours of disappearing, the victims appear on the Internet, bound to a chair in a white room.
Revenge or mercy? Their crimes of greed and incompetence are broadcast to the watching thousands who make up the jury. Once the verdict is cast, the man who calls himself The Jackdaw will be judge and executioner.
Live or die? DI Sean Corrigan and his Special Investigations Unit are under pressure to solve this case fast. But as The Jackdaw's popularity grows, Corrigan realizes he's hunting a dangerously clever and elusive adversary - one who won't stop until his mission is complete.

"A confident, aggressive and very promising debut by a former Met detective." (The Times) "An authentic voice on how the police operate with a stone-cold killer striking randomly around London...scary authenticity". (The Sun)

Sloppy work!

With it's rehashed plot line, it's cod psychology and the clumsy writing style - Luke Delaney's fourth novel is a great big disappointment. He started out with such promise and his lack of writing style (as an ex copper) was excusable. However, despite having the time to work on this he clearly does not think it is worth the effort. The result is sloppy, embarrassing and a sad waste of talent.
The reader is perfect in that his incompetence and lack of effort perfectly mirrors the atrocious writing. A match made in limbo....
