"Max Wolfe is back-- the two-fisted homicide detective with a small daughter and dog waiting for him at home and a crazed serial killer waiting for him somewhere out in the pitiless London streets. On New Year's Day, a wealthy family is found slaughtered inside their exclusive gated community, their youngest child stolen away. The murder weapon-- a gun used to stun cattle before they are butchered-- leads Max to a dusty corner of Scotland Yard's Black Museum devoted to a mass murderer who, 30 years ago, was known as The Slaughter Man. But The Slaughter Man has done his time and is now old and dying. Is he really back in the killing game? And was the slaughter of a happy family a mindless killing spree, or a grotesque homage by a copycat killer, or a contract hit designed to frame a dying man? Max desperately needs to find the missing child and stop the killer before he destroys another innocent family-or finds his way to Detective Wolfe's own front door. The Slaughter Man is another taut thriller from acclaimed international bestseller Tony Parsons"-- Provided by publisher.

Not as good as The Murder Bag but still entertaining as it shines light on abuse of women and children. Good argument for UK cops to carry guns so they don't become easy victims. Too many casualties from going in unarmed without backup too many times - defies credulity. But that would eliminate a good chunk of the story.

Where do these "credible" book jacket reviews come from. This character and storyline is mediocre at best. Gave up after team members attacked and "back to work as usual". Not at all believable.
