Blind Cupid, by Max Brandt (paperback)

Nick Sloane has a moral compass that no one understands but him. The last thing he needs is a touchstone that hurls it into confusion.

Simon Nicholson’s job at Freeways children’s home is tough, fighting on the front line of child abuse cases and coping with the fallout from neglect. The last thing he needs is one of his youngsters disappearing.

DCI Montgomery Flute has dark memories that are interfering with his work. It’s almost a year to the day that his life-partner, Tom, committed suicide and the last thing he needs is a complex murder enquiry throwing fuel onto a fire that’s already burning him up.

The discovery of a tortured body in an isolated spot turns out to be an ex-resident of Freeways. The dark secrets from all their pasts are being skillfully woven together by a calculating killer. It’s the very last thing anyone needs; especially the children.

2 reviews for Blind Cupid, by Max Brandt (paperback)

  1. I am a massive fan of horror and thriller writers and I saw Max talking about this at his launch event in Lyme. It took me 3 sessions to get through Blind Cupid and I was more than suitably entertained by this new author. It unwrapped a story about kids in care (something I know all about) and had some delightfully shocking scenes in it but nothing gratuitous at all. There was a particularly splendid twist which revealed itself towards the end and gave me a great sense of ‘Oh yes!’ when I read it. It’s sweary, it’s gritty and brilliantly real. I look forward to reading more from Max and heartily recommend the book.

  2. I didn’t think it was going to be ‘my sort of thing’, but it wasn’t long before I was totally engulfed in the story which kept me reading quickly to the end. Max Brandt’s writing shows grit but sensitivity, with a little bit of humour mixed in. Harlan Cobenish, I look forward to more from this writer.
