From Ken Bruen’s hard-nosed best seller comes tough, uncompromising and totally un-PC, Dirty Harry-style London cop Tom Brant (Jason Statham The Mechanic, The Bank Job). Unlikely teamed with his new gay boss Sgt. Porter Nash (Paddy Considine The Bourne Ultimatum, Cinderella Man), who’s battling homophobia from within the force, Brant is on the track of a vicious cop-killer who calls himself ‘Blitz’. With their prime suspect narrowed down to the seriously unhinged Weiss (Aidan Gillen TV’s The Wire) who demands to update his Facebook before he sees his lawyer, they lack sufficient evidence to charge him. Weiss is released and police continue to die. No matter the rules, no matter the method, Brant must hunt him down and stop him before he himself becomes the city’s next dead cop!
