Somewhere in the teeming heart of London is a man on a lethal mission. His cause: a long-overdue lesson on the importance of manners. When a man gives a public tongue-lashing to a misbehaving child, or a parking lot attendant is rude to a series of customers, the “Manners Killer” makes sure that the next thing either sees is the beginning of his own grisly end.

When she starts mailing letters to the Southeast London police squad, he’ll soon find out just how bad a man’s manners can get. The Southeast is dominated by the perpetual sneer of one Inspector Brant, and while he might or might nor agree with the killer’s cause and can even forgive his tactics to some degree, Brant is just ornery enough to employ his trademark brand of amoral, borderline-criminal policing to the hunt for the Manners Killer. For if there’s one thing that drives the incomparable inspector, it’s the unshakable conviction that if anyone is going to be getting away with murder on his patch, it’ll be Brant himself, thank you very much.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Bruen’s furious hard-boiled prose, chopped down to its trademark essence, never fails to astonish.”

    Publishers Weekly (starred review)

  • Brant’s passion for classic crime fiction—with frequent references to works by Charles Willeford, Jim Thompson, Dashiell Hammett, Raymond Chandler, et al—and the abundance of priceless hard-boiled one-liners throughout make Bruen’s Inspector Brant novel a down-and-dirty neo-noir gem.

Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by Donald | 3/8/2011

    " I've run out of superlatives for Bruen's books. The entire Brant series is brilliant.

    I'd suggest reading these books in order. They work as stand-alones, but much better within the context of the series.

    Highly recommended. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by Eric | 9/23/2009

    " Read the whole book in one day while home sick. Hardboiled and fastpaced - soon to be a movie starring Jason Statham. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Jeff | 8/12/2008

    " If you haven't read Ken Bruen, you have a treat in store. Great noir writer from Ireland. His Jack Taylor character is wonderful, a depressed alcoholic ex-cop to whom the downtrodden come to find lost loved ones. Great antihero. "
