‘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.
BIOGRAPHY Reece Pocock lives in Adelaide, South Australia, with his wife Marilyn, and after a short Army calling, he enjoyed a business career in sales and management. He had a major role in introducing the Bobcat Skid steer loader to the South Australian market.
However, as an avid reader, Reece's passion was to become a writer. He used this knowledge to launch his career with Marilyn's encouragement. He studied for four years and obtained his Advanced Diploma of Arts (Professional Writing). With these qualifications, he had to decide whether to become a novelist, a screenwriter, a short-story writer, an article writer, or children's stories. He tried all five with some success.
As a novelist he completed three novels, Murder on Display, (now published by Custom Book Publications) a crime story about a psychopath who displays his victims. The Soldiers, a German immigrant faces prejudice in Australia. The Politics of Murder is about a clandestine nuclear dump in Western Australia, and the associated political intrigue that followed. He is researching a fourth.
His major success as a screen writer was a high commendation in the Di Cranston Award administered by the Fellowship of Australian Writers, for his adaptation of The Soldiers.
Reece won the Burnside short-story contest. The on-line magazine TheCheers published twelve stories. The Crime Writers of SA anthology published, The Girl in the Red Beret and What a Dirty Little Town.
TheCheers published sixty articles written by Reece, mostly about politics, and he writes regularly for an Earthmoving magazine with a national circulation.
He has also written several children's stories.
