Blood, Salt, Water

Blood, Salt, Water

*** SHORTLISTED FOR THE CWA GOLD DAGGER 2016 ***

Salt water lifts blood. Only salt water.

Loch Lomond is a mile deep but the woman’s body surfaced anyway. Found bludgeoned and dumped in the water, she now haunts Iain Fraser, the man who put her there. She trusted him and now that misplaced trust is gnawing through Iain’s chest. He thinks it will kill him.

Nearby Helensburgh is an idyllic Victorian town – quaint, sleepy and chocolate-box pretty. But the real town is shot through with deception, lies and vested interests. As tensions rise and the police seek a killer, the conflicts that lurk beneath Helensburgh’s calm waters threaten to explode.

As DI Alex Morrow investigates, she uncovers a connection too close to home – and the case is gets more personal than she could possibly imagine.

Reviews

We're big fans of Denise Mina's DI Alex Morrow - and her fifth book in the series doesn't disappoint
BELLA
Mina's novels are engrossing, deeply rooted in reality and astutely perceptive about human nature and the internal politics blighting modern police forces. Blood Salt Water is also beautifully written and plotted, cementing the author's place as one of the finest contemporary British crime writers.
DAILY EXPRESS
Gritty, unpredictable and keeps the reader involved to the end
CHOICE
Mina is one of the most fiercely intelligent of crime writers . . . testament to how brilliantly intricate and psychologically complex her books are
GUARDIAN
Another authentic-feeling well-written tale of dark Glaswegian crime . . . dourly brilliant
