Some readers will enjoy this than I did The British police procedural comes in a few forms and in this instance we see the nastier and less teamworking side of London crime I found it unusual that the narration jumps from a third person to a first person Then the first person is a man DI John Gallan not the female called DS Tina Boyd who is the overall title of the series Seems to me that the book came first and the series came later When we are in third person which is most of the time we often follow a man called Stegs Jenner who would be an antihero if he was worthy of the title but really comes across as pathetic Maybe there are policing units where a cop can spend his life sinking pints and swallowing speed Maybe no police dog has ever sniffed him and sat with eager ears at his feet waiting for the handler to notice And maybe some criminals really don t notice if they leave fingerprints trace evidence and hairs all over the place the author doesn t seem to care Discipline and teamwork are appalling and I found no sense of cohesion whatsoever among the coppers perhaps because they kept on being pulled off one job and put on another with no regard for who worked with whom or was expert at what North and east London are the main districts worked no very scenic locations We are shown a web of plots and characters many of whom are mere names like a gangster family and all of whom on the criminal side live by drugs prostitution and threats Anyway expect violence gory death strong language and sexual references from the start Almost all characters are male and we get only a few pages of female viewpoint If that s not your scene try Ruth Rendell s Inspector Wexford books or Cynthia Harrod Eagles s DI Bill Slider books
