The Slaughter Man by Tony Parsons

5 Stars from me

Punk, Late '70s Fashion and The Wrong Trousers

The Hanging Club

The Hanging Club by Tony Parsons

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I do love it when a new book comes out in a series I like, The Hanging Club is the third book in the Max Wolfe series, a London cop who somehow always has to consult Scotland Yard’s Black Museum when investigating a case. 138 more words
