Another excellent novel by Elizabeth Corley, Innocent Blood is the fourth in a series all featuring DCI Andrew Fenwick and Sergeant Louise Nightingale.
These are really enjoyable crime fiction novels, written in the true British tradition, yet with a modern edge that keeps them bang up to date. Corley isn't afraid to explore the darker side of life in any of her novels, and in Innocent Blood she takes us into the murky world of paedophilia. A deeply unpleasant topic, yet she handles it superbly well, and the reader is never left feeling besmirched by the contents of the novel.
If you're a new reader, then you're in for a treat! Corley writes a gripping, suspenseful novel, with the personal lives of Fenwick and Nightingale interwoven into the story.
The tension never lets up for a moment, and the conclusion neatly draws all of the loose ends together, while still leaving one wanting more. (I have a personal weakness for tidy endings, having little imagination, I'm afraid!)
It's best to read these four novels in order, making Innocent Blood the last of the four, but don't be put off by that if you only want to try one. While this is excellent, my own personal favourite remains the outstandingly good Fatal Legacy. However, why not splash out and read them all? Hours of reasonably priced entertainment, and as good on the beach this summer as they are curled up in front of the fire on a wintry evening!
If, like me, you've completed the series, you'll be wondering when the fifth is due. So if you're reading, Mrs Corley, do tell?

RETIRED AND READING
BrilliantReviewed in the United Kingdom on 13 April 2014
I have now read all the Andrew Fenwick books to date and as they go on the stories get better . The characters develop as the story unfolds. I think this book was the best so far. I would certainly recommend this book to anyone who likes police procedures.

I really enjoyed this book and have now downloaded the rest of the series. Pity I didn't start on Book 1 but each book stands alone, so it didn't spoil my enjoyment.
