A young man is found in a riverside park, his head bashed in with a rock. The only clue to his identity is an admission stamp for the local gay club. DS Lucy Black is called in to investigate.
As Lucy delves into the community, tensions begin to rise as the man's death draws the attention of the local gay rights group to a hate-speech pastor who, days earlier, had advocated the stoning of gay people and who refuses to retract his statement. Things become more complicated with the emergence of a far-right group targeting immigrants in a local working-class estate.
As their attacks escalate, Lucy and her boss, Tom Fleming, must also deal with the building power struggle between an old paramilitary commander and his deputy that threatens to further enflame an already volatile situation.
Hatred and complicity abound in the days leading up to the Brexit vote in McGilloway's new Lucy Black thriller. Compelling and current, Bad Blood is expertly crafted and acutely observed.
"Set just before the Brexit vote, this book explores important questions of community and identity. McGilloway shies away from easy answers; instead he gives us a tense and beautifully-written crime novel that takes the reader into lives that aren't seen often enough." (Ann Cleeves)

I had my problems with this one, the previous volumes were amazing.
But in a situation where incredibly old-fashioned racism hits the community, the police shield those who spread hatred and those who stand up for minorities are pictured as aggressive and stupid and are restrained by the police. Really strange style of policework. Strange style of writing books when you force your audience to listen to/ read endless homophobic bs. I don't understand how it helps the story. Especially if you compare the wits of the homophobic preacher to the brainless way of acting and talking Lucy and Fleming keep up. They are scared of a clergyman, they give him all he needs to grow even bigger and then they are portrayed as the clever ones again. Doesn't match.
Considering that the story is embedded in the topic of Brexit, one might say that the way this preacher is treated doesn't fit Europe anyway because churchmen on the continent have had to accept their limitations within a modern society for decades, which can't be said about Nixon in the book.
I hope the next volume is a true Gilloway again. This one wasn't.
Four things that might be nit-picking, but still... maybe Lucy could stop people in a different way than chasing them in front of a car or truck for a change. It's getting boring and predictable.
The word "bucă" isn't your bum in Romanian, also easy to find out.
Gypsies, or Roma, speak their own language among themselves, not Romanian. They are a so-called subculture, a lot more unique than the travelling community in Ireland. They are actually a different people than the Romanian people altogether.
And: Constanța isn't a Romanian female name. It's a city. Basically easy to figure out if you put in 30 seconds' effort. I mean... you don't call Irish people Derry or Kilmarnock or Ballyconneely, do you?
