THE SLAUGHTER MAN BY TONY PARSONS

WHO DO YOU WANT DEAD?

SPECTACULAR TENSE AND HUMAN, FAST AND AUTHENTIC

A murdered family.
A dying serial killer.
A missing child.
DC Max Wolfe hunts a pitiless killer through the streets of London, he learns that even the happiest of families have black twisted secrets that someone is ready to kill for.
On New Year’s Day, a wealthy family is found slaughtered inside their exclusive gated community in north London, their youngest child stolen away.
The murder weapon – a gun for stunning cattle before they are butchered – leads Detective Max Wolfe to a dusty corner of Scotland Yard’s Black Museum devoted to a killer who thirty years ago was known as the Slaughter Man.
But the Slaughter Man has done his time, and is now old and dying. Can he really be back in the game?
And was the murder of a happy family a mindless killing spree, a grotesque homage by a copycat killer – or a contract hit designed to frame a dying man?
All Max knows is that he needs to find the missing child and stop the killer before he destroys another innocent family – or finds his way to his own front door…
MY REVIEW
I read Tony Parsons first novel The Murder Bag  which I just couldn’t put down and highly recommend readers to read it. The Slaughter Man is an excellent thriller and I highly recommend it.
What I like about  Tony Parsons is that he has created a Detective Max Wolfe that features in both of his novels. We get to learn more and more about Detective Max Wolfe from each novel.
I found The Slaughter Man a very good story and very frightening it will have you on the edge of seat. when an author produces a frightening nail-biting story you know he or she is a good crime author to follow.
 A little about what to expect from The Slaughter Man. On New Years Eve a boy wakes up to his father scream. His sister calls for the police. A wealthy family is found slaughtered inside their exclusive gated community in North London and their youngest child has been stolen away. I look forward to reading Tony Parsons third novel in 2016 when detective Max Wolfe returns.
