Blood at the Root

by Peter Robinson

December 1, 1998 | Trade Paperback

Blood at the Root is rated 4 out of 5 by 1.

Hatred and murder breed in dark places ...

In the long shadows of an alley a young man is murdered, savagely kicked and beaten to death by assailant or assailants unknown. It is a crime shocking in its raw brutality, and its shattering repercussions will be felt throughout a small provincial community on the edge -- because the victim was far from innocent, a youth whose sordid secret life was a tangle of terrifying contradictions and virulent racial hatred. And now a dedicated policeman beset by his own tormenting demons must follow the leads into the rankest pits of man's inhumanity to man -- to catch a killer before his village explodes.

Reviews

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Dead Right= Blood at the Root BE WARNED!! This is a reprint by the new publishers of Peter Robinson. The original book was called Dead Right (1997)- which was very good- however I felt cheated when I bought Blood at the Root and recognized the first few pages. If you haven't read either book, then you're fine. Otherwise, its a cheat.
