Lovereading view...

A second novel starring DCI Frank Keane which is not for the faint hearted. Full of swearing and gratuitous violence, it starts with horrific and seemingly senseless murders in Liverpool and ends in Los Angeles. Along the way we follow the battle between Frank Keane and the psychotic killer Noone keeping us firmly on the edge of our seats. We learn the identity of the killer early on so this is not a who but a why tale with a clever ending, leaving plenty of room for the sequel.

Synopsis

Down Among the Dead Men by Ed Chatterton

This is the dark, gritty second novel in the Detective Inspector Frank Keane series. At first glance, the bloody crime scene in suburban Liverpool looks like a straightforward murder-suicide - the husband kills the wife and then himself. But what of their missing teenage son, Nicky? Is he their prime suspect or the third victim? With Nicky's holiday job on a film being shot in the city bringing unwanted press attention, newly-promoted head of the Merseyside Major Incident Team DCI Frank Keane knows that time is running out to find the boy. But all too soon the case starts unravelling into one that will test Keane to the limit - and haunt him to his dying day.
