Read in June, 2011

Stories in this series are supposed to evoke the spirit of a city while showing its gritty, noir underbelly. Almost without exception the stories in this particular collection make London sound like Hell's Kitchen in NYC in the days when the Westies were running wild and cutting off people's fingers for the fun of it. It's a really violent, sadistic read. If I got paid a quarter for everytime I read the words f**k and c**t, i could take myself out for a nice dinner.

Gail This is precisely the sort of thing that made me stop reading the quite well-written Elizabeth George mystery series featuring Inspector Lynley. It just gets to be too much after a while.
