The Blood Divide by A.A. Dhand is a thrilling contemporary crime suspense that will have your heart racing as the tension rises.
The novel is set in the back streets of Bradford moving to the hot, dusty, exotic Delhi. With comprehensive descriptions the reader becomes immersed in the locations. We ‘sense’ the heat and ‘see’ the vibrant colours of Delhi which is in sharp contrast to Bradford.
We are a product of our past. A rich heritage should be persevered, not wasted or squandered. The criminal underworld contrasts with a respected Khali bloodline. Preoccupation with money and crime insults a family line.
Secrets from the past need to be unearthed. The truth must be faced.
All the characters were well drawn and realistic. Some struck fear into the reader.
Incidentally some of the book is set in Baildon where I have family. This enabled me to easily picture the location.
I thoroughly enjoyed The Blood Divide. I always find A.A. Dhand’s novels gripping and exciting, and being set in Bradford, the scenes really come to life for me.
I received a free copy via Net Galley. A favourable review was not required. All opinions are my own.
