When Dennis Milne--now living under an assumed identity in the Philippines--hears that his old friend and colleague Malik has been gunned down in a restaurant, he decides to go back to the violent city he once called home and bring the murderer to justice. Milne arrives in a pre-Christmas London that is cold and hostile. But he is no longer a policeman; no longer charged with keeping the peace and upholding the law. Although his old friends at the King's Cross station do not know that Milne is back in town, it soon becomes clear that his arrival has been expected by men who are after his blood. Hungry for revenge and determined to uphold his own very rough brand of justice, Milne searches for the person behind his friend's demise--and leaves a trail of death and destruction more wide-reaching than even he could have expected.

From the Hardcover edition.

From Booklist:

*Starred Review* Fans of Kernick's stellar debut (The Business of Dying,2003) will hail the return of pragmatic disgraced copper Dennis Milne to the series after a two-book hiatus. With a new face and a new name (Mick Kane), Milne is now incognito in the Philippines as a hotelier, dive instructor, and reluctant hit man, who kills only those who deeply deserve it, such as a homicidal pedophile on holiday, or the slippery fellow killer-for-hire who did in his old partner, Asif Malik. Returning to London to hunt down those responsible for Malik's death, Milne eases onto the brutal streets and into his old ways with all the relish of tucking into a plate of chips, a pint of bitter, and a pub brawl. Milne's arrival has been anticipated, and the tension doesn't let up for a single page as he dodges a nasty array of potential captors and killers, teaming with a comely journalist to go after very big bottom-feeders. Kernick spins a nonstop mystery thriller, leavening the grimy noir with a renegade hero every bit as likable as Spenser and as tough as Hawk. A good book for a breakthrough and a sure bet for fans of gritty Brits and hard-boiled thrills from Ken Bruen to Ian Rankin to Michael Connelly. David Wright
