When a stranger enters DI Carmichael’s local church, with blood on his hands claiming to have committed a murder, Carmichael and his team are quickly summoned.
And when the man disappears, as mysteriously as he arrived, with few clues to his identity, where he came from and where he went, Carmichael quickly realises that all may not be as it seems.
The conundrum becomes even more puzzling when, in less than 24 hours, a corpse is discovered in the boot of a Bentley car down a quiet country lane.
As the body count rises Carmichael and his team remain confounded as to who is behind the murders and what motive they have for taking so many lives. In this, the eighth gripping murder mystery from the pen of Ian McFadyen, the author once again captivates the reader with an array of beguiling characters tightly woven within an intriguing, skilfully scripted plot.
It will keep you guessing right until the end…
This is part of a series, but Blood on His Hands can be read as a standalone, easily. What’s awesome about starting in a series like this is that it makes me want to read the rest of the series. Ian McFadyen has a new fan in me.
This book is a bit of a slow burn and took a bit for me to get wrapped up. But once the pace picked up, I was really excited. I really love the writing style. This plotline is really great and I thoroughly enjoyed it.
The characters were fantastic. They were very clearly written in a way to feel real. I felt like I was part of the team, knowing the characters like friends.
I really enjoyed Blood on His Hands. I definitely recommend checking it out!
