Dennis Milne is back! A dark, gritty, utterly page-turning novel set in Londonís meanest of mean streets: the follow-up to the hugely acclaimed debut, The Business of Dying.

When Dennis Milne ó now living under an assumed identity in the Philippines ó hears that his old friend and colleague Malik has been gunned down in a restaurant, he decides to go back to the violent city he once called home, and bring the murderer to book.

Milne arrives in a pre-Christmas London that is cold and hostile. But he is no longer a policeman; no longer charged with keeping the peace and upholding the law.

Although his friends at the Kingís Cross station do not know that Milne is back in town, it soon becomes clear that his arrival has been expected by men who are after his blood. Hungry for revenge and determined to uphold his own very rough brand of justice, Milneís search for the person behind his friendís death leaves a trail of death and destruction that is more wide-reaching than even he could have expected.

Review: A Good Day to Die (Dennis Milne #2)

User Review  - Pam - Goodreads

Good read, entertaining well explained, but I need to get away from the books that have the buildup to the ultimate fight at the end and everyone dies but the good guy. Better than Jack Reacher books in my opinion and better written than Patterson Read full review
