Out For Blood by Deborah Masson
About The Book
A young man, the son of an influential businessman, is discovered dead in his central Aberdeen apartment.
Hours later, a teenaged girl with no identification is found hanged in a suspected suicide.
As DI Eve Hunter and her team investigate the two cases, they find themselves in a tug-of-war between privilege and poverty; between the elite and those on the fringes of society.
Then an unexpected breakthrough leads them to the shocking conclusion: that those in power have been at the top for too long – and now, someone is going to desperate lengths to bring them down…
Can they stop someone who is dead set on revenge, no matter the cost?
A complex and intriguing story to make any reader re-think about the world we are living and which are the values of our society. Why rich people can always skip the law while the poor are punished without reason?
This book is about two cases, one young rich man that appears dead in his apartment while a teenager with no identification seems to have committed suicide. As you can imagine, there’s no connection between both cases, so DI Eve Hunter will investigate them separately. But the reader always thinks, are they connected? Is there someone searching for revenge?
I really don’t want to talk much about the plot, it’s twisted and intriguing, the core will not leave you indifferent, because even if it’s just a fiction story you can totally feel that there’s a real part in it. Don’t get me wrong, the author created an amazing story of fiction, but the privileges and power of the rich are present in the society, human trafficking is something scaring and so horrible that is a tabu to talk. So I can only thank to the author, Deborah Masson, for this thriller, it’s an absorbing read, but at the same time an eye-opening story to make us want to change the world and the ones who have the power to control it.
This is the second book of the series DI Eve Hunter, you can read it as standalone, but believe me, the read is worth to start from the beginning and let Eve show you the real world.

About The Author
Deborah Masson was born and bred in Aberdeen, Scotland. Always restless and fighting against being a responsible adult, she worked in several jobs including secretarial, marketing, reporting for the city’s freebie newspaper and a stint as a postie – to name but a few.
Through it all, she always read crime fiction and, when motherhood finally settled her into being an adult (maybe even a responsible one) she turned her hand to writing what she loved. Deborah started with short stories and flash fiction whilst her daughter napped and, when she later welcomed her son into the world, she decided to challenge her writing further through online courses with Professional Writing Academy and Faber Academy.
Her debut novel, Hold Your Tongue, is the result of those courses.
Hold Your Tongue has been widely well reviewed by readers and authors alike, with many comparing her favourably to Stuart MacBride. It won the Bloody Scotland Scottish Crime Debut of the Year 2020 and was longlisted for CWA New Blood Dagger 2020.
