Brant gets shot

  • Jul 5, 2010
Ken Bruen can do more with a fairly short book that is long on dialogue than many other writers who feel compelled to load up their works with useless verbiage. He's not trying to win any artsy prizes for his writing, just trying to deliver a good story well told. As uusual, he succeeds with this book about the amoral Sgt. Brant and his cohorts.

The book begins with Brant being shot and ends on a somewhat enigmatic note, that will keep readers guessing until they read the next installment. Meanwhile, you just go along with the plot, which is, as I said above, dialogue driven, and it hooks you in and keeps you interested until the end of the book.

Once again we see the inner workings of the London police, and some of it is not pretty. There are bogus arrests, unnecessary beatings, gruesome murders and a panoply of other nasty things which don't put the police in a very good light. On their behalf, it appears that they really have a commitment to bring the bad guys to justice, even if the methods used are not what normal people would do. Brant doesn't have a lot to do in this book, because of his wounds, but his fellow officers pick up the police slack and soldier on until the end. I'm avidly awaiting the reading of the next book in this excellent series.
