Summary

When an undercover police officer is killed and a deadly shipment of pure heroin hits land, it looks as though the operation to bring down Brighton's biggest drug dealer is compromised. But the investigation is in more trouble than either Detective Sergeant Minter or his boss, Tom Beckett, could ever imagine.

Embarking on a bloody journey that will set him on a collision course with his team, Minter is pulled back into his own troubled past - to a childhood spent in care and the vicious murder of his closest friend. Past and present converge and Minter finds himself pitted against the only family he has ever known - the police family - as he fights to uncover the startling truth.

Flesh and Blood is the first novel in a stunning new crime series starring DS Minter. By turns gripping, shocking, and poignant, it will keep you riveted to the end.

This book infuriated me!

This book was almost all filler with a lot of unnecessary detail and long drawn out torture and death scenes that added nothing to the story.
There were too many characters and it was just trying to do too much ,on top of all this it was so unrealistic.
I found myself skipping ahead just to get to the end of the story.
The book was only ten hours but it felt like twenty.
Avoid.
