really liked it

Written three years ago, this is a gritty police procedural set in the dark depressing world we’re all now afraid we might wake up to tomorrow. The NHS is as good as gone, the police are riddled with corruption and the banks are calling the shots. A visceral and disturbing thriller, A Matter of Blood is also compelling and unputdownable. Furthermore the slow drip feed of supernatural goings on surrounding the central serial killer case keeps you on the edge of your seat.

Despite his myriad faults, central character DI Cass Jones knows the difference between right and wrong and cares about which side he's on. The problem seems to be that this new world has no room for people like him.

The book leaves the reader with more questions than it answers - but that's what the first part of a trilogy should do. I look forward to part two, Shadow of the Soul, which is now waiting on my Kindle...
