"The Blood Detective" is a gripping genealogical crime novel of blood-stained family histories and gruesome secrets...the first of it's genre to explore the growing interest in family trees. "The Blood Detective" recently won "Your Family Tree" magazine's Fiction Book of the Year Award. As dawn breaks over London, the body of a young man is discovered in a windswept Notting Hill churchyard. The killer has left Detective Chief Inspector Grant Foster and his team a grisly, cryptic clue...However it's not until the clue is handed to Nigel Barnes, a specialist in compiling family trees, that the full message becomes spine-chillingly clear. For it leads Barnes back more than one hundred years - to the victim of a demented Victorian serial killer. When a second body is discovered Foster needs Barnes' skills more than ever, because the murderer's clues appear to run along the tangled bloodlines that lie between 1879 and the present day. If Barnes is right about his blood-history, the killing spree has only just begun...This recording is unabridged.

Review quote

"Unabridged audio books present the text in all its glory, just as it should be. No buts - no cuts. I was as excited to hear that there was to be an unabridged audio version of The Blood Detective as I was to get it published." Dan Waddell "Expertly plotted." Mark Billingham"
