A band of vigilante executioners roam London's hot summer nights, abducting evil men and hanging them by the neck until dead. SENTENCED TO DEATH: the gang member who's abused vulnerable girls; the wealthy drunk driver who's mowed down a child; and the hate preacher calling for the murder of British soldiers. As the bodies pile up and riots explode across the sweltering city, DC Max Wolfe hunts a gang of killers who many believe to be heroes. And discovers that the lust for revenge starts very close to home...
Someone just brought back the death penalty. The third book in Tony Parsons' bestselling DC Max Wolfe series.

Confirms Parsons has earned a place at the very pinnacle of British crime writing." Daily Mail "Spectacular! Tense and human, fast and authentic." Lee Child "A relentless plot, evocative prose and compelling portraits of the characters, good and evil, conspire to make this a must read."
