The Field of Blood by Denise Mina

The Field of Blood

Denise Mina

Not for the faint-hearted. The kind of book that the Glasgow Tourist Board would like to bury alive. Which is not what happened to the victim - definitely dead.

Extract

James was left alone. It had blood all over its chin and down its front like a bib. The blood was warm when he had his hands in it, when he had his hands around the baby's neck.
