Detectives Ray Paterson and John Clocks find themselves sitting right in the middle of two notorious drug lords fighting to be top dog.

They are called in to investigate the finding of a man's body. The man, identified as the son of one of the city's most notorious crime lord has been burned alive.

The war between two criminal empires results in escalating violence on the streets of London. Many more bodies will fall .. one way or another ... unless the detectives can find the killer or killers soon. Men who have no fear of the law and its consequences and who are unafraid to kill anyone who stands in their way — including other police detectives.

Paterson is a young man who has plenty of money behind him. He's on track to be the youngest ever commissioner of police, but he doesn't have near enough experience. He is not well liked among his peers but he has the will to learn and the desire to be an excellent policeman.

Clocks is a different kind of man. He was raised in poverty, spent some time as a very young criminal. He loves to taunt people, jut daring them to react. Of course, he will never rise in the ranks of the police department and he doesn't seem to care. He has sort of befriended Paterson and it's quite entertaining to watch the relationship between the men.

This is the third in a series of action-packed, edge-of-your-seat crime thrillers, with an ending that will have your heart in your mouth. This easily reads as a stand alone, but there are just a few spoilers from the first two books. As always, I recommend starting at the very beginning.

Many thanks to the author / Joffe Books / Netgalley / Books n All Promotions / Jill Burkinshaw for the advanced digital copy of this crime fiction. Opinions expressed here are unbiased and entirely my own.
