Fourteen years ago, Shane Donald and Alan McKiernan were arrested for the brutal rape and slaying of a young girl. Now another young girl has disappeared and all fingers appear to be pointing to Shane. Elder was responsible for the original arrests and is now hired as a consultant in the case given that he knows Shane.
However, as Elder investigates, things get way too close to home. Specifically I am referring to the leisurely paced novel that truly centers on the police officer almost to the subjugation of the plot. When done right there are few works that compare in terms of richness of language, character and the locale itself.
This is a very impressive work and it is the subtle tension of the missing women and the subsequent murders that truly keep the pages turning. My one gripe is the truly disappointing ending which any reader of the genre would have picked out near the beginning of the book.

I felt it was both a cheap and a manipulative device. However, this is one of the best books of the year,overall and a worthy winner of the CWA Silver dagger. Fans of John Harvey's Charlie Resnick mystery novels rejoice: Harvey's new mystery novel, featuring retired police inspector Frank Elder, is as gripping and as chilling as the Charlie Resnick books.
Dare one hope that this will be the beginning of a brand new series? I devoutly hope so. When his marriage fell apart, Detective Inspector Frank Elder handed in his notice and retired to the Cornish coast.
There, haunted by nightmares and his unresolved feelings about his failed marriage, Elder maintains a day to day existence, reading novels, until an ex-colleague informs him of the early release of rapist-murderer, Shane Donald. The case had been especially disturbing in its brutality and violence; but what really haunted Elder was that he had been unable to get either McKeirnan or Donald to admit to having had anything to do with the disappearance of another young sixteen, Susan Blacklock. Now, with the early release of Donald, Elder finds in himself a renewed interest in trying to find Susan.
Had McKeirnan and Donald been involved in Susan's disappearance? Elder had always believed that the two had met and murdered the unfortunate girl. But if so, why had they always denied any connection to her? Had the police after all made a fatal mistake in trying to tie Susan's disappearance to the duo? And had they missed an important piece of evidence in their rush to connect the cases?

As Elder struggles to answer these questions and go over again the old clues, Donald breaks parole and leaves his halfway house, while another sixteen year old disappears. Is history is about to repeat itself? Gritty, gripping and magnificently rendered, "Flesh and Blood" was truly unputdownable.
The novel unfolds smoothly and swiftly, with authour successfully mounting tension upon tension, and plot twist upon plot twist with each succeeding chapter. Also brilliantly done was the authour's ability to relate in stark and realistic terms the depressing, painful and hopeless lives that some of the characters led and continue to lead. Obviously what carries "Flesh and Blood" through though, is Harvey's sympathetic chief character, Frank Elder -- a sensitive, decent and caring man, who hasn't quite figured out how his life has ended up the way it has.
Elder may belong to the often used British police detective type, but he was totally engaging and easy to relate to and root for, and I for one, am hoping that there will be more Frank Elder books. Acting on the request of detective Maureen Prior, Elder returns to Nottinghamshire with some trepidation. One of the perpetrators of a kidnapping-murder has been released on parole; Prior believes Shane Donald may lead them to the other missing girl who has never been found. To that end, she persuades Elder to help in a renewed effort to reopen the case.
But when Donald, whose former crime was heinous in the extreme, is threatened, he disappears from the assigned group home into the countryside.
