A mass shooting. An amoral Romanian gangster. A Russian oligarch who claims to be an honest businessman, but isn’t.

No one knows who was the target or why, but there are eight dead. The men seem the most likely, or could have it been one of the two women, the attractive Gillian Dickenson, or even the celebrity-obsessed Sal Maynard?

A mass shooting in a high-end hair salon for men is the start of a big problem for DCI Isaac Cook and his team. Even the minor local mafia boss doesn't seem like a likely target for this type of killing. But as Isaac and his team keep digging, it begins to look like it had nothing to with anyone there--and everything to do with a brewing gang war between a Romanian gang well established in the area, and a major Russian mafia gang moving in.

The deaths in the mass shooting are, of course, not the

A gunman walks into a high-end London hair salon and opens fire, killing the owner, two staff members, and five customers. For DCI Isaac Cook and his team, the race is on to find the killer, but they must start with a relatively blank slate. At first, there’s no motive, but as they begin to look under the rug, they find much trash: a ruthless Romanian gangster and his henchmen, a Russian oligarch with an impeccable reputation in England, but who heads one of Russia’s top mobs, and assorted other ...more

"Ripped straight from the day's headlines"

This isn't fake news, it's the real thing. In your face, with no holds barred. Isaac Cook and his colleagues are fighting crime with one hand tied behind their back. Everyone on the wrong side of the law is scared of the Romanians. The London gangs were tough, the West Indian Yardies were ruthless, but they were swept aside by the newcomers. They ruled the roost, until the day the Russians decided they wanted a piece of the action in the English capital.

ECO Cook solves another one

What can be done in a country where law and order rule,where even the badguys are innocent until proven guilty? What can be done if the police know, beyond a shadow of a doubt who the master mind is but they have no evidence for a court of law? This book really makes you consider all of those thoughts. Another excellent read by Phillip Strang.

International gangs playing ruthless, with mass murders and more, Isaac knows who they are, getting the evidence or someone to come forward, won’t happen Upscale hair salon, a tv star, a girl harassing him, side jobs of the barber. a lot of motive for Isaac’s team to look into. Answers came unexpected, well written to figure out.

Stilted

Characters seem two dimensional, dialogue is stilted. No passion from any of the characters, just sentences with as few words as possible.
I like it here books by Mr Strang but this series very sterile

This book starts well, as it's quick, precise and very captivating, but then it's downhill. There's not as much detecting by the police as circumstances that solve crime, and the last half of the book is more like nonfiction than fiction. I believe the author has done, and can do, better.

3.5 stars. Subject matter is good. However, the book (and series) lacks any significant character development and the ending are generally very abrupt.

Great Series

Lots of conflict and murders. All three factions of the bad guys fight it out in the streets. The winner gets the drugs and distribution in England.
