Overview

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 cops in 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.

The police psychiatrist asks South East Detective Sergeant Brant to talk about his tendency towards violence when the patient lights up a cigarette in the non-smoking office and head butts the shrink. As the Super lectures Chief Inspector Roberts over his failure to reign in Brant¿s abusiveness, the latter learns his wife died in a car accident. Super has his favorite poster boy handsome PC McDonald take home the distraught Roberts. Officer WPC ¿Black is Beautiful¿ Falls fails a key exam while goof McDonald, who almost cost her life, remains the Super¿s pet. Still the fair haired McDonald runs into trouble; Brant sets him up to look like a stooge and he had an accident in which hekilled a bloke ....................................... While Roberts replaces his wife with alcohol as his companion, Falls turns to drugs and a skinhead for solace, and Brant is on the brink of suspension, The BLITZ murders police officer Sandra Miller. Other cops are killed and soon the South East London Police Squad knows they must stop a vicious serial killer. However, with Roberts deep into mourning and Brant in deep trouble, Porter Nash leads the investigative task force which only angers his superiors, Roberts and Brant................................ Living up to its title, BLITZ, fans will feel just that way with this one sitting trip on London¿s wild side. Readers get a close up look at several cops struggling with personal problems when the serial killer, seeking publicity, begins a reign of terror that grips London and the audience. The ending is a delightful twist that will leave police procedural lovers seeking more urban noirs from Ken Bruen (see THE GUARDS and KILLING OF THE TINKERS)............................
