My rating: 4 of 5 stars
The Slaughter Man is the sequel to The Murder Bag (it’s going to be a trilogy apparently). In this one DC Max Wolfe is investigating the gruesome murder of a very well off family and the disappearance of the four year old son. There’s lots of exciting sequences but almost too many in a way. No policeman could be that unlucky and Wolfe was beginning to feel a bit like Jack Bauer, so there was definitely some disbelief that needed suspending. So much so I was actually beginning to loose interest towards the end of the book as Wolfe and the rest of the MIT stumbled from one serious injury to another. But still it was entertaining enough.
