Annotation The third installment of David Peace's renowned Red Riding quartet introduces Peter Hunter, an illustrious detective who is brought in to catch the "Yorkshire Ripper," but finds he must also confront the legacy of corruption which has stained his new department. Each time the Ripper strikes, Hunter is simultaneously dismayed by his failure and energized by new evidence, but as he begins to make progress on the case, he finds that his investigation is endangering his marriage, his home, his career, and his life. But what Hunter's assailants don't realize is that their attempts to break his resolve are actually severing his social attachments and making him more dangerous than ever. Peace's vicious crime series was adapted into RED RIDING, which first aired as a prize-winning drama on UK's Channel 4 and was released theatrically in the United States in 2010.
Editors Note Continuing the narrative begun with Nineteen Seventy-Four and Nineteen Seventy-Seven, this electrifying third installment of David Peace’s Red Riding Quartet demonstrates a skill that goes above and beyond the limits of the genre.While Yorkshire is terrorized by the Ripper, the corrupt police continue to prosper. To give the case some new life, Peter Hunter, a “clean” cop from nearby Manchester, is brought in to offer a fresh perspective. As he goes about setting up a new case under the radar, he suffers the same fate as those who previously attempted to get in the way of the Ripper: his house is burned down, his wife threatened. But he soldiers on. And as he comes face to face with unthinkable evil, Hunter struggles to maintain his reputation, his sanity, and his life.
