Despite having given a heads up to Commander Anderson about his theory, DI Chandler is called before a review board after a second murder takes place. Again, it has all the earmarks of Jack the Ripper's second murder 100 years ago and appears to vindicate his theory of the copycat killing. DS Miles checks with some of the girls who are on the game and there is a soldier, eventually identified as Pvt. John Leary, who's been roughing some of them up. They bring him in for questioning but he proves less than cooperative. As some of his squad begin to develop at least a modicum of respect for him, Chandler stuns them by coming up with another key piece of evidence: the killer's DNA which the pathologist got from the victims' eyeballs, the killer having apparently licked them at the time of the murder.

Overzealous Incompetence
18 April 2018 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

Chandler continues to try to depend on his men, including his chief sergeant. This guy jumps to conclusions. He is always spouting about his twenty years on the force. But, once again, he doesn't consider all the implications of his decisions. Buchan is locked up because of his insight and his competence. He has predicted the next murder and, since one of the officers blew the theories to the press, the effort to capture the killer are messed up are messed up. There is also a military man who has beaten women in the past and it is decided hat he's the guy. So off they go like keystone cops. One thing I would question about this series is the pace. There is too much action and not enough thought. Chandler has a lot to learn.
