LoveReading Expert Review of Blood and Honey

A Portsmouth/Isle of Wight police procedural tale, the sixth in the Joe Faraday series, jumps the reader from one crime to another eventually linking them, but for most of the time it could almost be two books. The rather strange relationship between a hooker and an old, unwell PC adds interesting colour to a fragmented tale that keeps you on your toes and is surprisingly unputdownable.

Similar this month: Ann Cleeves.
Comparison: Simon Kernick, John Harvey, Reginald Hill.

 

Maxim Jakubowski, a Lovereading expert voice says: Joe Faraday; the investigations of a Portsmouth cop and a fascinating look into crime on the British coast. If you like Ian Rankin’s Rebus, this should be your next step. NO LOVELIER DEATH is the 9th book in the Faraday series.

Blood and Honey Synopsis

The discovery of a headless corpse on the rocks below cliffs on the Isle of Wight is only the beginning of a journey for DI Joe Faraday to the centre of the grim trade in human cargo from the crippled societies of the Balkans. From cheap labour to prostitution, Portsmouth, like every other city in the UK is home to untold human misery; a black economy built on illegal immigration.

Joe Faraday is determined to find the real criminals that lie behind the tabloid hysteria.

Detective Constable Winter on the other hand is determinded only to find a way out of the disciplinary action that threatens his entire career. A burgeoning relationship with a young prostitute isn't exactly helping his cause.

Graham Hurley has written another vivid novel of all too human policeman struggling against an overwhelming tide of crime. This is crime writing with a vivid edge of documentary realism.
