Blood Guilt by Ben Cheetham
  

Lovereading view...

Just out of prison for serving a manslaughter charge, our ex-policeman, guilt-ridden , self-hating protagonist wants in some way to atone for his crime. Then fate hands him a solution that he can set up and run with. This really is page-turning, plot twisting, well written stuff. Dark, gritty, Sheffield-based with that horrid feeling … there but for the grace of God … this ordinary man, who acted foolishly and is now truly paying the price, does get your sympathy. Highly recommended.

If you like Ben Cheetham you might also like to read books by Allan Guthrie, Stuart MacBride and Neil White.

Synopsis

Blood Guilt by Ben Cheetham

'Last night, eight-year old Ethan Reed was abducted at gunpoint from his home by an armed intruder. We are urging members of the public to get in touch. A coordinated search of the local area will be carried out.'Four years ago, Detective Inspector Harlan Miller killed someone. Now - divorced, alone, consumed by guilt - the world outside his prison walls holds little for him. Until, mere days after his release, an eight-year-old boy is abducted. Ethan Reed. The son of the man he killed. Frustrated by a police search that finds nothing, driven to desperation by repeated appeals that bring in no new leads, Ethan's mother knocks on the door of the man she has reason to hate most in the world. She has one question to ask - beg - of Harlan Miller. Find her little boy. Do whatever it takes.
