Burnside is an old style CID copper made famous in hit crime series such as The Bill. Life on Mars come to mind but this is realism. Now working for the crime investigation squad, Burnside investigates when a gang of drug dealers start gun running. He also investigates a serial killer, again copied in new crime programs. The Russian Mafia also feature, all copied by lesser coppers! When a trial ends in disaster, Burnside and his team find themselves investigating a Gangland murder. When a group of women are killed one by one, Burnside and his team race against the clock to find the killer before he strikes again.
Watch out for Ronnie "The Razor" Buchan, a former London gangster and Burnside's nemesis.
Wonderful acting by Ellison as Burnside and good stories.
Highly recommended good old fashioned crime stories.
Tough anti hero .
