Taming the Alien by Ken Bruen

Taming the Alien is the second book in the White Trilogy and features the corrupt London cops Chief Inspector Roberts and Detective Sergeant Brant. Taming the Alien is a series of brief snapshots of criminal lowlifes and their depraved versions of getting their own way.

Murder, muggings, mayhem, stand-over tactics and corruption are told in a clipped style that spares not a word. And all of it is told with a regular smattering of weird and wild humor that insinuates itself into the violence. This is a modern day noir book that is at the forefront of a reawakening of a genre that was more often found during the 1930s.

The books that make up The White Trilogy are: A White Arrest, Taming the Alien and The McDead.
