Brant and the cop killer

Ken Bruen is simply a fantastic writer! I can't think of any other thriller author who can do so much with spare prose and a tremendous amount of dialogue. It seems as if he's lived some of the life about which he writes.

In this excellent book, Sgt. Brant (not yet an Inspector) and his cohorts are on the trail of a maniac who hates cops and has decided to kill a number of them, first with a gun and then with a hammer. The reader knows from the beginning who the killer is, but its the investigation that keeps interst going.

Additionally, we get glimpses of the "off the job" lives of Brant and some of his colleagues, and we can get a feel for the stress and strain of being a policeperson. Meanwhile, the investigation goes on and there is an arrest, but that is not the end of the story.

The true end, when it comes, is somewhat of a shocker, but if the reader has been paying close attention to the story, perhaps it isn't. I know that I would rather read Ken Bruen's books to the exclusion of almost any other thriller writer, and that's taking in a lot of territory.
