‘The Hoodyman did not enjoy murder, but it was necessary. His victim, running along the River Torrens Linear Park on this cool Adelaide morning, deserved to die.’
A killer is on the loose in South Australia. A task force headed by Detective Sergeant Dan Brennan is soon on the case.
But, upon closer investigation, it seems that all the victims are criminals themselves; murderers, rapists, drug runners and crooked cops, all previously set free by the authorities. A vigilante has decided to do what the police and the judiciary apparently can’t. And soon the newspapers report ‘hoodymen’ killings in other states
What begins as a routine murder investigation becomes a national crisis and Brennan’s task takes him to the highest levels of the army and the government, revealing deep secrets, conspiracy, corruption and ruthlessness. After an assassination attempt, Brennan realises he is in a fight for his own life too.
In The Killing Men, Reece Pocock presents his third Dan Brennan novel.
