    Blitz, part of the Inspector Brant series reads like a modern day take on Ed McBain s perinatal cop 87th precinct series In typical Bruen style the writing pulls no punches, short on content but big on impact Despite being the 4th book in the series it reads perfectly well as a standalone, however I wish I had tracked down the first three books to gain a better understanding of where the characters were at in their professional and personal lives pre cop killer Blitz being thrown into the m

    Blitz is part of a series of books by Ken Bruen It did not detract from my reading experience in any way to have not read any of the other books in this series I think the best way to describe this novel would be to compare it to a fifteen round boxing match with Muhammad Ali a young Ali at the height of his prowess Blitz is written in a staccato style I can best compare to a series of jabs by a skilled pugilist you are moved round the squared circle and have no recourse but to take it as you Blitz is

    Just like the title would indicate this was a quick read Having already seen the movie I was surprised how faithful it was to the bookThough I thought the character and motivations of the killer were better fleshed out in the film and the plot was a bitstreamlined.Bruen manoeuvres about a dozen characters in this book and somehow he makes them come alive with only a few lines of description This was my first Brant book and it was a lot faster and less contemplative than the Jack Taylor n Just like the title would

    Fourth in the Inspector Brant suspense series set in London and revolving around Sergeant Tom Brant, a corrupt, brutal cop with a heart My Take Oh, I was so hoping the opening scene with the shrink would be Brant It s one of the things I like about Brant he has no compunctions about destroying self righteous know it alls like Dr Hazel Then there s Falls treatment of a group therapy leaderoh yeah.It s an interesting mix of cops helping each other and, metaphorically, beating on each ot Fourth in the Inspector Brant suspense series set in

    Pure Bruen genius When thinking about authors that write noir well, no one comes to mind quicker than Ken Bruen He has a remarkable ability to present us with characters that are rotten inside but still manages to makes us care for them In the Inspector Brant series we get to read about the despicable policeman who has little regard for the law, tramples over people as if they were a small bump on the road and acts as tough as any character out there But the mesmerizing part is that once you Pure Bruen genius When thinking about authors that w
