Flesh and Blood (A DI Amy Winter Thriller Book 4)
Flesh and Blood is another excellent book in the DI Amy Winter series. It is book 4 but it can easily be read as a standalone, although I do recommend the entire series.
In Flesh and Blood, the death of a colleague takes Amy, and her team, to Clacton. The apparent suicide sends shock waves of grief throughout the team and questions are raised. This soon sparks an investigation into other suicides in seaside towns. Nothing seems to connect the victims, but something doesn’t sit right with them. It’s soon obvious that there is much more to these incidents than meets the eye and nothing could prepare them for what they find out as their investigation progresses.
This is a hard-hitting storyline which is even more horrifying as these things do happen in the real world. There are some brilliant characters throughout this book who really bring this story to life. They really made me think about the awful things some people go through and how lucky we are to live in a safe, secure, and happy environment.
Amy is an excellent character. I love how real she is. I always like that we get to know a little more about the ‘main’ characters, who feature throughout a series, as their stories progress. I’m excited to find out what happens next in her life, especially given that ending!
I always enjoy a police procedural and Caroline Mitchell knows exactly what she’s talking about being a former police detective.
This is a fast-paced, suspenseful, and emotional read which kept me glued to my kindle. I loved it and will highly recommend to anyone who will listen.
