London's southeast precinct, ruled by Chief Inspector James Roberts and Detective Sergeant Tom Brand, is an area where even the pit bulls travel in pairs. When Roberts' brother is killed, the inspector sets out to bring down the man responsible, Irish gangster Tommy Logan. While Roberts and Brand set their trap for Logan, other detectives in their squad are setting up one of their own as a decoy to catch the Clapham rapist, a serial pervert with a penchant for black women. This is the third entry in Bruen's White trilogy, and it offers a stark glimpse of a London that tourists hope never to see. Brand and Roberts don't enforce the law as much as they wage war against those they see as challengers to their rule. Fans of British procedurals and noir novels will savor every speck of grit in this unrelenting crime novel. Wes Lukowsky
