Having read and liked the first book in this series, The Reaper, I found this second book a bit of a let down. It started well with a suspicious death in Brighton but then moved to Derbyshire and the original death was hardly mentioned. A rather convoluted plot then develops where the author uses the split-time technique: the current storyline and a parallel one from the past. This serves to interrupt the flow of the story with the result that it was hard to maintain continuity in either plot. The actual storyline, that there are shadowy people in the Police force and elsewhere who will "eliminate" the undesirable elements in society, is a very interesting premise but I felt it wasn't developed adequately. My impression of this novel is that this is an author who has a very interesting idea but he needs to work a little bit harder to develop it.
