Beats around the city Blitz represents Ken Bruen at his edgy lethal and sharp tongued best and will reward fans of his Jack Taylor novels with another astonishing smart and brutal vision from a writer rapidly becoming one of the best of his generati. Blitz is the fourth in Ken Bruen s crime series about London cop Detective Sergeant Brant the first three are collected in The White Trilogy and it s the best one yet While retaining the character focus the gritty tone and the dark gallows humor of the previous entries Bruen crafts a tighter narrative this time with a plot that has a satisfying conclusion instead of veering off into a dozen different odd directions Barry Weiss a thuggish young barfly snaps and starts murdering cops throughout London calling himself the Blitz and seeking to emulate the serial killers in his favorite books Brant is on the case but his usual superior Chief Inspector Roberts is on leave after losing his wife in a car accident Brant is instead paired with Sergeant Porter Nash a gay officer recently transferred to the precinct As Brant and Nash hunt for Weiss Roberts tries to get back into policework in the wake of his wife s death Police Constable Falls continues her spiral into depression and PC MacDonald tries to rise in status SPOILERSThe characters are the best part of these books and Brant in particular He s still a violent angry alcohol soaked hard case but he shows a softer side in Blitz When Nash is assigned to lead the investigation into the Blitz s murders everyone assumes Brant will blow his top but uite the opposite is true Brant actually likes Nash not bothered at all by his homosexuality in the way some of the other cops including the astoundingly bigoted Superintendent and actively pursues a friendship with him Brant tells Nash that he s been depressed of late barely able to find a reason to get out of bed in the morning and he latches onto Nash as a means of support Is it because Roberts is busy coping with his loss or is there something going on When MacDonald tries to spread the rumor that Brant and Nash are lovers Brant is mildly amused And when Brant agrees to go with Nash to his father s wedding he tells him he s on for anything Is Brant attracted to Nash Is he a bisexual or possibly a newly budding homosexual It isn t spelled out but it s an interesting wrinkle to Brant Brant is also explored through the villain Barry Weiss hates cops and after three run ins with police officers in the same day he gets hold of a Glock and starts executing them throughout London Now Weiss is clearly a psychopath and he likely would have become a murderer no matter what but what was the genesis of his cop hatred It was an incident where he was causing a disturbance at a bar and a young officer showed up and beat the shit out of him hurting him and humiliating him in front of a bar full of people cheering Brant on not that this isn t warranted Weiss and his rampage are the results of Brant s ruthlessness and cruelty and it s being visited on innocent cops It s a representation of how cops like Brant reflect on the whole police force getting the public to distrust and even resent them and pushing lunatics like Weiss over the edge to murder Brant is dangerous in ways than one and the saddest part is that he never even realizes it Aside from Brant Roberts is still funny sarcastic and entertaining In the wake of his wife s death he s struck initially by how little he cares He and his wife didn t get along and as he explains to the Superintendent while he loved her he didn t like her However he is now all alone as his miserable brat of a daughter only wants money from him It s sad seeing him adrift at the supermarket unsure of what he needs but it s invigorating when he comes back to work and starts solving cases left and right like a wrecking ball bashing London crime Roberts replacement Porter Nash is also a great character very different from Roberts and Brant and a good counterpoint to both He s professional than Brant but not an opportunistic ass kisser like MacDonald and it s suggested that deep down he may have a bit of a monster longing to escape something that would make him like Brant than he s comfortable being Falls returns as well coping with her friend s death as well as trying to keep in touch with black culture while being immersed in white British London What s so fascinating about this is how alien it is to her as well and while she tries her best to embrace it it takes a lot of work She experiences loss this time with the skinhead who became her friend sacrificing himself to save her from Weiss and she eventually loses herself in cocaine shaking down dealers for a fix By the end she s off the drugs but it looks like she may have traded one addiction for anotherThe seediness of Bruen s London is alive and well in Blitz but what s interesting than the dive bars and drug pushers are the facets of government and other authorities that are portrayed with much contempt The Superintendent is brazenly racist and bigoted against homosexuals and Roberts relishes sticking it to him But the book actively shows how wrongheaded his thinking is by having him back MacDonald the straight white guy who kisses his ass then shows MacDonald to be incompetent and ultimately capable of allowing an innocent person to die to cover himself something Falls and Nash would never do Brant is ordered to see the department s psychiatrist and he assaults the man forces him to drink on the job then calls the British euivalent of internal affairs and pretends to be MacDonald when ratting him out The shrink isn t evil but he s incapable of curbing someone like Brant And when Falls goes to rehab it s a torture chamber run by smug uncaring sadists who dehumanize those who need their help And rather than letting them break her Falls knocks around the worst of them and makes him apologize to those he torments This seems particularly brave as things like rehab are considered above reproach Bruen s work feels rebellious because of things like this and that makes it all the fun to read Blitz is a fun cool brisk read for fans of crime fiction especially British crime fiction I wish I had the next Brant story on hand but it won t be long Čokoladne godine of his Jack Taylor novels with another astonishing smart and brutal vision from a writer rapidly
