    A gripping and fast paced story that kept me hooked till the end. I liked the solid mystery that kept me guessing, the well written and interesting cast of characters, and the entertaining plot. It's the first book I read by this author and won't surely be the last. Recommended. Many thanks to the publisher and Netgalley for this ARC, all opinions are mine.

    Police Procdedural - Murder Mystery

    Blood Family by Graeme Hampton DI Denning and DS Fisher #2 Family, murder, secrets and more...generations gone in one night but why? Who would kill so ruthlessly then burn everything to hide their trail? How will the police finally unearth the murderer and find justice for those murdered? This book was a well crafted police procedural that dealt with arson and murder. It also revealed links to a cold case that kept cropping up as the search continued for the killer. A side trail lead to organized crime and human trafficking and the biggest thing of all was...not the actual investigation...at least not for me. No, the biggest thing about this book was that it dealt with real people. The author drew me in with not only the police bits but with the police themselves. In seeing the issues those who protect us and search for criminals deal with not only while working but while at home...well...that was the biggest thing...the thing that made this story so very real to me. I had not read the first book in this series but did not need to for this book to pack a powerful punch. I was drawn into the complexities of the story and search for the “bad guy” but also felt for both Denning and Fisher as they dealt with issues in their own lives. Family is many things...sometimes it is what we share with blood relatives and sometimes it is more or less than the tie blood provides. Families can be “good” or “bad” or “dysfunctional” but in the end...the family we find ourselves within will help mold and shape us and give us much that will help us become who we ultimately are – that person will think and make decisions and move forward dependent on their past...and I say that because I do believe that in this book Denning and Fisher are impacted by their familial relations and both grow in new ways before the end of the book. What made this special? It made me care and think about families and what my family means to me Did I enjoy this book? Yes Would I read more by this author? Yes Thank you to NetGalley and Hera Books for the ARC – This is my honest review. 5 Stars

    Blood Family A Good Read

    Lots going on to keep your mind engaged. Molly can be a little frustrating breaking rules all the time, but helps to keep the story interesting to the end This is my first reading of Graeme Hampton & look forward to more. Well worth the 5 stars.

    Outstanding!

    I am a Graeme Hampton novice and I was so impressed with this outstanding mystery-thriller! This is the second instalment of his DI Denning and DS Fisher series and I was happy to dive straight in. Although I have yet to read book one (entitled Know No Evil), the premise of Blood Family beckoned to me and I knew that I had to read this novel! Blood Family definitely did not disappoint. It had everything I would expect from a fantastic mystery/police procedural - a great plot, well-drawn characters and terrific pacing. Even though I have read quite a few books with a similar premise to this one - an "ordinary" family, unexposed secrets, murder, compulsive lies, manipulation, evil and several twists, so I began this book in the knowledge of what was to come. This police procedural has also been a great delight, full of jeopardy, deception, tension, dysfunction and fascinating characters, whether they were loved or hated and unexpected outcomes. There was oodles of suspense and it was definitely an enthralling reading experience that had me hooked throughout. I loved the shock factor and twisting plot, making this extremely difficult to put down. I really appreciated the smooth writing style of Graeme Hampton and it was easy to connect with the characters - to imagine them, like or loathe them. The great reveal was perfect, fulfilling and unexpected. Blood Family was everything I wanted in what was a pretty special mystery-thriller and I am already looking forward to my next read by this gifted author. I highly recommend Blood Family to lovers of the genre for a read that really packs a punch. I received a complimentary copy of this novel, at my request, from Hera Books via NetGalley and this review is my own unbiased opinion.
