Porcelain: Flesh of Innocents by Lee Cockburn Blog Tour

Detective Sergeant Taylor Nicks is back and in charge of tracking down a sadistic vigilante, with a penchant for torturing paedophiles, in this unsettling crime thriller by a real-life police sergeant.

High-powered businessmen are turning up tortured around the city of Edinburgh with one specific thing in common — a sinister double life involving pedophilia. Leaving his ‘victims’ in a disturbing state, the individual responsible calls the police and lays bare the evidence of their targets’ twisted misdemeanours to discover, along with a special memento of their own troubled past — a chilling calling card. Once again heading the investigation team is Detective Sergeant Taylor Nicks, along with her partner Detective Constable Marcus Black, who are tasked not only with tracking the perpetrator down but also dealing with the unusual scenario of having to arrest the victims for their own barbarous crimes. But with the wounded piling up the predator’s thirst for revenge intensifies and soon Nicks discovers that she is no longer chasing down a sinister attacker but a deadly serial killer.

Vivid, dark and deeply unsettling Porcelain: Flesh of Innocents is the perfect next read for serious crime and police thriller fans.

Book Spotlight

The book is a story about two young children who have suffered abuse all of their lives from their mother and her partner, both of them vile, cruel and sadistic people, until their rescue.
The story covers the trial from the first book Devil’s Demise, which a lot of people have been waiting for.

The book quickly moves on to violent, brutal assaults on people who have skipped the long arm of the law and vengeance grips the city.

The story revisit’s the children who are both now grown up now and the lives they are now leading and how they have coped with their past.

There are numerous extremely violent assaults that take place in the city, which the perpetrator leaves a special memento as their calling card and enough evidence of their victim’s crimes to have them face the justice they have managed to avoid.

One of the main characters suffers a very traumatic incident, one where they believe they have lost something so precious, that they feel that they can’t go on.

Taylor finds herself torn once again between Kay and Fran, her decision made, only for it to be cruelly taken away from her. Very broken and suffering her usual torment of self-destruct, she finds herself slipping once again, which only adds fuel to her other lovers anger and dismay.

The book delves into the dark recesses of human’s inability to control their deviation and lust for sadistic and evil pleasure that twist the stomachs of many. The story unravels many twists and turns, and you find yourself wishing harm on those who deserve it and for those who have caused harm to be saved.

Without giving too much away, this book will be a difficult read, as it was difficult to write, and harrowing even for me to read it over, but the story is a reminder that children aren’t children forever, and how their futures can be shaped by their past.
