All families have secrets... some are deadly.
When D.I. Matthew Denning is called in to investigate a house fire in a North London street, he never anticipated the horrors that awaited him. As Denning and D.S. Molly Fisher search the wreckage, the bodies of the Galloway family – Brian and Ellie, son Simon, daughter Amber and 9-year-old grandson Caleb – are discovered in the smouldering house.
All evidence points to a tragic accident… until Matthew and Molly discover that the family was dead before the fire, murdered in their home by a faceless psychopath. What started as a routine investigation swiftly turns into a murder investigation, with Denning and Fisher hunting a killer who has wiped out three generations with a shotgun.
But as the case deepens, Denning and Fisher discover that the Galloways were no ordinary family. Like all families, they harbour secrets - but unlike others, their secrets were so deadly, someone is willing to spill blood to keep them hidden…
An utterly gripping detective novel set in London, Blood Family will thrill fans of Angela Marsons, Mark Billingham and Robert Bryndza.
I didn't realise when I started reading this book that it is actually the second in the series. I am normally so good at checking things like this but clearly hadn't bothered this time. However I don't believe it took anything out of the book for me as I had no trouble following the story.
An interesting and well written story, I think it's safe to say that I will certainly be looking out for more from this author.
The MIT team in East London has two officers who I've just been learning about, DI Matt Denning and DS Molly Fisher
This book starts off with a great story line, and crime that you really need to follow, you want to know what has happened, it keeps you intrigued.
What is thought to be a house fire turns out to be something quite a lot more and bodies have been found in the house.
As usual I love reading about the characters and their lives and I think over the next few books it will be interesting to find out more and more about all the characters.
I can safely recommend this book and I think most crime fiction fans will really enjoy it.
