The South East London police squad are down and out: Detective Sergeant Brant is in hot water for assaulting a police shrink, Chief Inspector Roberts' wife has died in a horrific car accident, and WPC Falls is still figuring out how to navigate her job as a black female investigator in the notorious unit. When a serial killer takes his show on the road, things get worse for all three. Nicknamed "The Blitz" by the rabid London media, the killer is aiming for tabloid immortality by killing cops in different beats around the city.
Blitz represents Ken Bruen at his edgy, lethal, and sharp-tongued best, and will reward fans of his Jack Taylor novels with another astonishing, smart, and brutal vision from a writer rapidly becoming one of the best of his generation.

"The South East London police squad are suffering collective burn out: Detective Sergeant Brant is hitting the blues and physically assaulting the police shrink. Chief Inspector Roberts' wife has died in a horrific road accident and he takes solace in gut-rot red wine." "Black WPC Falls becomes lethally involved with a junior member of the British National Party and the Super's golden boy, PC McDonald, is investigating the death of a man he accidentally killed. Only Porter Nash's star appears to be in the ascendancy." "The team never had it so bad and when a serial killer takes his show on the road, things get worse. Nicknamed 'The Blitz', a vicious murderer is aiming for tabloid glory by killing cops. Harold Dunphy, ace crime reporter believes he's on to the story of the decade and the police have never had more incentive to catch a serial killer."--BOOK JACKET.
