‘The Colour Of Blood’ By Declan Hughes


The last case I worked, I found a sixteen-year-old girl for her father; when she told me what he had done to her, I let her stay lost.

The case before that, I provided a husband with evidence of his wife’s infidelity; that night he beat her to death, then hanged himself in the marital bedroom.

Now I was calling on a man who by nightfall would be the prime suspect in two murder cases.

Maybe one of these days, I’d get a better class of client. Maybe some day. Maybe not today

 They say that the first lines of a piece of writing, are always the most difficult to set down on paper. It seems to me, that they may also be the most definitive, as I find they often set the scene in my mind, even before I have turned the first page. Those were some more ‘first lines’, which have done just that for me …

That, and a very intriguing synopsis, made this a book I didn’t want to pass on before reading…….

Declan Hughes establishes the credentials of his character Ed Loy PI, in this, the second book in the series.

I can’t remember a time, even as a child, when I haven’t been passionate about books and reading.
I began blogging, when I realised just how many other people out there shared my passion for the written word and I have been continually amazed at the wealth of books that are available and the amount of great new friends I have made, from literally 'The Four Corners Of The World'.
