Flesh and Blood by John Harvey

Flesh and blood

Mixed reviews for this one on Amazon. Sense some disappointment from those who have been spoiled by the qualities of the Resnick series but this really is a pretty good effort at a different approach with retired tec Frank Elder being asked to pick up an old cold case involving a missing girl and then getting drawn into a whole new set of more current crimes. Elder is entertainingly curmudgeonly and tortured but makes a credible lead. Pretty compelling in large part.
