Storyline

The mutilated corpse of an elderly man is dragged from the Thames. From his hand-made shoes he is identified as Lenny Cobb, an old lag who once testified against the notorious but long dead Kray twins who ruled London's gangland in the 1960s. East End historian Buchan believes it is the first in a series of copycat murders in the style of the Krays and is proved right when another ex-villain who gave evidence against the Krays, Slasher Gainford, is also killed. There is also a resurgence in violent attacks such as the mutilation of young Dan Street in a pub toilet, another hallmark of Kray warning shots. Prime suspect is surly pool hall owner Steven Dukes though Buchan thinks he is not the right sort. Strangely enough his more civilized business associate Jack Cheshire has requested that local officers Chandler and Miles stay on the case, rather than it being given to the organized crime squad.

A New Vicious Set of Killers
20 April 2018 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

After failing to catch the new Ripper, the gang awaits a crime worth investigating. Even though we all know what happened to the Ripper, Chandler is thought to be ineffective. Here we have a beginning of a set of copycats that pattern themselves after a vicious family called the Crays. Once again Buchan offers his services, an expert on more criminals than Jack the Ripper. The guys begin to investigate some horrible murders. One man's brain has been removed. There are victims who have recovered from having been cut up by these guys. Once again, Chandler and his men receive no respect at all from the powers that be. It is assumed that many of the police are confederates to the Crays. This one really reaches, but I am enjoying it.
