Blood Tears by Michael J Malone.

Blood TearsD I Ray McBain is a man on the run.On the run from his horrific childhood in an orphanage ruled by suitably sadistic nuns, on the run from commitment-he’s shagging a married woman- and on the run from dark dreams. And when he’s accused of a series of brutal murders McBain is literally on the run from friends and enemies alike.

Blood Tears could easily have been just another grim police procedural/ serial killer yarn  but Michale J Malone has given those tired tropes a kick up the jacksy. Plenty of earthy humour, likable and colourful characters and a page turning plot that stretches credibility at times but only in a good way.
