September Books 16) Blood Hunt, by "Jack Harvey" (Ian Rankin)

This standalone tale by Rankin is about a Scottish SAS veteran seeking revenge for his murdered brother (NB that brothers crop up a lot in Rankin's plots). The story is supposedly about the global chemicals industry's conspiracy to poison our food, which was even more topical back in 1995, but actually the real point is the central character's quest for vengeance across America, England, France and Scotland, and how it unexpectedly ties into an old and forgotten personal feud. Exciting action stuff at the end, but presumably our hero would end up facing a significant jail term for the methods he uses to deal with his brother's killers.
