Blue Wicked – Alan Jones

Someone is killing cats in the most gruesome manner in Glasgow and Eddie Henderson, local vet, is taken on as a consultant by police when he raises concern that the killer has started targeting humans.

The first couple of chapters of this book are not for the faint hearted and I found myself wincing and trying to read with my eyes hidden! But persevere as this is a bloody good read!

It’s a raw, gritty Glaswegian read (glossary included at the back for those not familiar with the terms used) which provided WTF moments along with laughs – typical black Glasgow humour.

It’s fast paced with a strong plot and I am intrigued to see where Alan goes with Eddie next – something slightly different from your usual police procedurals but with enough realism to keep you hooked!

I fully intend to keep an eye open for more from Alan Jones – 4 stars from me
