The discovery of a headless corpse in the sea beneath the cliffs is a grim beginning for Detective Inspector Joe Farraday's latest investigation on the Isle of Wight. Identifying the body proves impossible, but the disappearance of a young delivery driver who's fallen foul of a local nursing-home owner--an ex-soldier with a violent temper--gives the team an important lead. Meanwhile, Detective Constable Winter's life lurches from crisis to crisis as he becomes involved with a beautiful young prostitute at the center of an investigation of a powerful local businessman. Winter's problems are further compounded by a series of vicious and debilitating migraines, the implications of which are alarming. For Winter, it's beginning to look as if time is running out...The sixth novel in this highly praised series of police procedurals--and the best yet.
Brilliant new cover style for Graham Hurley. BLOOD AND HONEY is another vivid novel of an all too human policeman struggling against an overwhelming tide of crime. The fan-base for the Faraday novels is increasing with every book. All the Faraday novels are now in the terrific new cover style. The whole series has received excellent reviews: 'Crime writing with attitude. Read these books and you'll understand why Blair's Britain is falling apart' Observer. 'Hurley is now firmly at the top, with few rivals in this genre' Sunday Telegraph. 'Excellent modern British crime writing' Independent on Sunday. 'A great British police procedural. Faraday is a fine creation' Michael Connelly. 'Uncompromisingly realistic. This series grows with stature with each book' Sunday Telegraph. 'An ambitious police procedural epic ... A splendid achievement' Guardian. 'This is how a crime novel should be written, and it pushes Hurley right to the forefront of British crime writers, which is where he richly deserves to be' Independent on Sunday.
