Vixen

Inspector Brant Series

Ken Bruen

Minotaur Books

For the Southeast London police squad, it's rough, tough, dirty business as usual. The Vixen, the most sensuos, crazed female serial killer ever, is masterminding a series of lethal explosions. She is unpredictable, wild, angry--and the cops don't even know she exists.

Meanwhile, Inspector Roberts is helpless to stop the explosions and his subordinates aren't doing much better. Brant is consumed with an even-bigger-than-usual mean streak, and fast-rising Porter Nash finds himself facing serious health problems--everything to do with needles. PC MacDonald is determined to soldier on, whatever the cost, and the career of a new addition to the squad, WPC Andrews, starts spectacularly but with Falls as her mentor she's not expected to last long. At the top, Superintendent Brown is close to a coronary, and arresting the wrong man in a blaze of publicity is only the beginning of his problems.

If the squad survives this incendiary installment in Ken Bruen's blazingly intense series, they'll do so with barely a cop left standing.

REVIEWS

Praise for Vixen

"Amongst writers, Ken Bruen has become the crime novelist to read. He is further revolutionizing the art of crime fiction."-George Pelecanos , author of Hard Revolution

"Bruen is a brilliant, lyrical, deeply moving writer who can make you laugh and cry in the same paragraph and whose characters are so sharply portrayed that they almost walk off the page at you. If you like Ian Rankin, Dennis Lehane, George Pelecanos, and the like, Bruen is definitely a writer to reckon with."-Denver Post

"Bruen is an original, grimly hilarious and gloriously Irish. I await the further adventures of the incorrigible Jack Taylor."-Patrick Anderson, Washington Post

"The next major new Irish voice we hear might well belong to Ken Bruen."-Chicago Tribune

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

  • Ken Bruen

  • Ken Bruen spent twenty-five years as an English teacher in Africa, Japan, Southeast Asia, and South America, and once worked as a security guard at the World Trade Center in New York City. In the late 1970s he was imprisoned and tortured over a period of four months in Brazil. Of this time he has said, "There's not enough alcohol or valium in the world to wipe out those memories. So I decided to write books. Just to prove to myself that I was still alive, if nothing else."
