After throughly enjoying and following Tony Parsons contemporary London based crime series that features DC Max Wolfe of Homicide and Serious Crime Command, West End Central since its inception, I have become used to the topical themes and contentious issues they raised The fifth and previous novel, Girl on Fire, disappointed me immensely largely due to the subject matter specifically how close to home the jihadi war against the West is and the political standpoint presented and character development With boss DCI Pat Whitestone making rash decisions and seeming throughly contemptuous of both her colleagues and the public, and with Max bending over backwards in an effort to play the political correctness card I was all set to ditch the series However even the death of a central figure in the last story wasn t enough to see me off and with this sixth instalment effectively working as a stand alone, taken brings a return to the form of the first four books with some solid crime thriller action Together with his diminutive and highly experienced boss, forty year old DCI Pat Whitestone, and young TDC Joy Adams just a year out of Hendon it sees Max Wolfe in the thick of another high profile case.The story se It s so nice to read a police procedural that doesn t play the Big Social Issues card I like my crime fiction to focus on the personal, and here we have the whole swirl of emotions, including love, hate, jealousy, revenge, fear, heartbreak That s the stuff I like, especially when long festering wounds erupt in the present, years later.We begin with an abduction of a beautiful young mother who seems to have been the wrong target It looks like the intended victim was an exotic dancer who is also the mistress of a 1990s drug lord now supposedly turned straight and doing business as a car recycling magnate The investigation takes Detective Max Wolfe and his boss, DCI Pat Whitestone, from multi million pound homes in London and the suburbs, to strip clubs, to car wrecking yards, and Everyone knows how important it is to recover a kidnapping victim fast, or it is likely the victim will be killed But in this case, everyone also lies Peeling away those lies is what leads Max to the solution of the crime But since this is a Max Wolfe novel, along the way there are plenty of chases, plot twists and
