Blood Tears – Michael J Malone – Gritty Glaswegian Crime

Blood Tears introduces us to DI Ray McBain – possibly the most flawed detective I have come across but also one who you cannot help being drawn to. As his mind begins to unravel his life follows suit as a brutal murder has links with his childhood in a Catholic monastery.
Only in Glasgow could we have comedy alongside paedophilia and Michael Malone manages to pull it off. This book gripped me right from the start, the subject horrifying yet still managed to make me laugh. The references to my hometown of Glasgow made it standout even more – I felt myself walk the streets and drive down the M8 with McBain at times.
Gritty and Glaswegian crime at it’s best – couldn’t put it down!
