The Killing Club- Paul Finch

Published May 2014

the killing club

Get hooked on Heck: the maverick detective who knows no boundaries. The perfect read for fans of Stuart Macbride and Luther.

DS Mark ‘Heck’ Heckenburg is used to bloodbaths. But nothing can prepare him for this.

Heck’s most dangerous case to date is open again. Two years ago, countless victims were found dead – massacred at the hands of Britain’s most terrifying gang.

When brutal murders start happening across the country, it’s clear the gang is at work again. Their victims are killed in cold blood, in broad daylight, and by any means necessary. And Heck knows it won’t be long before they come for him.

Brace yourself as you turn the pages of a living nightmare. Welcome to The Killing Club.

My thoughts

I read ‘Stalkers’ a while back and fell in love with the crazy maverick cop, Heck. Heck is a fantastic character. There is just something about him, that is special. I want him to go off on his own and get the baddies, with bullets flying in all directions. Who needs an entire police force, when you have Heck?

In ‘The Killing Club’ Heck is following the trail of ‘Mad Mike Silver’ aka Rochester, who has been sprung from jail by the ‘Nice Guys Club’. We met the Nice Guys in ‘Stalkers’ and they weren’t very nice. The Nice Guys specialise in rape and murder, for a £75,000 fee. All hell breaks loose, as the Nice Guys go on a killing rampage across the UK.

Heck unfortunately isn’t allowed to be a part of the investigation into tracing the Nice Guys. It is hardly surprising that our heroic copper from the Met, goes off on his own and gets in on the action.

I wish there were more scenes with Gemma and Heck. They were my favourites. Gemma is his ex-girlfriend and his boss. She really knows him and doesn’t stand for nonsense.

Recommended if you like an action packed read!

About Northern Crime

Reviewer with a mind of her own. This is a collection of book reviews, which started in 2014. Mostly crime and odd other genres thrown in. Some I loved. Some I loathed. You get the picture.
