Max Wolfe is back-the two-fisted homicide detective with a small daughter and dog waiting for him at home, and a crazed serial killer waiting for him somewhere out in the pitiless London streets. On New Year's Day, a wealthy family is found slaughtered inside their exclusive gated community, their youngest child stolen away. The murder weapon-a gun used to stun cattle before they are butchered-leads Max to a dusty corner of Scotland Yard's Black Museum devoted to a mass murderer who, 30 years ago, was known as The Slaughter Man. But The Slaughter Man has done his time and is now old and dying. Is he really back in the killing game? And was the slaughter of a happy family a mindless killing spree, or a grotesque homage by a copycat killer, or a contract hit designed to frame a dying man? Max desperately needs to find the missing child and stop the killer before he destroys another innocent family-or finds his way to Detective Wolfe's own front door. The Slaughter Man is another taut thriller from acclaimed international bestseller Tony Parsons.

"Colin Mace grippingly narrates this violent sequel to THE MURDER BAG. Detective Constable Max Wolfe can be as tough as a London cop needs to be. But Mace also captures another side of him--that of attentive, doting single dad to his precious daughter, Scout, who is also warmly rendered. On New Year's Day, the Wood family, who live in a gated community, are found brutally murdered, with youngest son Bradley missing. Mace is particularly adept at recounting police history when Wolfe goes to Scotland Yard's Black Museum to research past killers who may have committed the crime. In addition to his skill at depicting London's diverse neighborhoods and residents, Mace's portrayal of Mrs. Murphy, Scout's reliable nanny, adds a light touch to an engaging procedural.
