Flesh and Blood by John Harvey
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Following his wife's betrayal and his own retirement from the force, Detective Inspector Elder has fled as far as it is possible to go in England without running out of land. But he is haunted by the past and in particular by the unsolved disappearance of sixteen-year-old Susan Blacklock back in 1988. Shane Donald and Alan McKeirnan, convicted just one year later for the brutal rape and murder of a young girl, remain the prime suspects in Elder's mind, and when he hears of Shane's early release from prison, he feels compelled to leave his safe haven and to revisit the scene of the crime. When Shane then breaks parole and disappears and yet another young girl is horribly murdered, Elder's involvement becomes crucial. McKeirnan seems to still wield a frightening power over his ex partner even from his prison cell, and the new murder bears the all hallmarks of Lucy Padmore's earlier death. An increasingly desperate Elder is already running out of time when his own daughter goes missing and a taunting postcard reveals that she is in the hands of the killer.
