  • Hero Nelson and his team are a likeable bunch. His wife supports him in his busy job as a DI. A very intriguing whodunnit. With a surpise at the very end.


  • Torn Apart is a fast-paced thriller and so exciting, I couldn't turn the pages fast enough. It was very well written and true to life - especially the mentality and behaviour of certain gang members who think they are above the law. I will definitely be reading more from this author.


  • I’m no police officer but I’d imagine if a crime was committed and it was all on CCTV and this was discovered as early on as chapter two I’d guess the police would arrest those individuals, seeing as they knew their names, and the case would be shut. This book can’t have been researched. Very poor.


  • Torn apart by mel Comley. Everyone understands about the no-go districts--areas of the city so overrun with gang violence even the police stay away. In this book, the first in a new series, DI Hero Nelson sets out to combat the issue. When Saskia Hartley and her nine-year-old son are run down outside a restaurant, DI Nelson knows it is no ordinary hit-and-run incident. He's looking at a homicide case and the evidence points to the brutal Krull Gang. When two prostitutes are murdered, but little [...]


  • Having read and enjoyed all the Justice series novels written to date by M A Comley, I had to read ‘Torn Apart’, the first in her new Hero series. I had the feeling that this was going to be another great read and in fact by the end I was not disappointed.‘Torn Apart’ is a fast paced, edge of your seat thriller full of twists and turns that makes you turn the pages at a staggering speed to see what will happen next. The principal characters in this novel are DI Hero Nelson and his partne [...]


  • Torn apart is shocking from the start with an incident at McDonald's that would make me use the drive thru if I went with just my kids.Saskia thought she was the luckiest girl in the world. Little did she know a trip to McDonald's would be so horrific. This is just the startis leads on to moreGang warfare, police investigation impeded by a "helpful" journalist and an unknown party getting involved leads to an addictive read with deaths in gruesome ways. I thought I had the unknown party sorted b [...]


  • I received this book for free in return for an honest review, so honest I will be. In the beginning I really did not enjoy this book. Firstly I didn't like the writing and the dialogue seemed forced which annoyed me a lot. Sasikia, although he love for her son was undeniable, made me quite angry the way she didn't fight to protect herself and her son, instead begging them to leave her son alone and letting them have their way with her. This gang clearly, and it become more clear with every page [...]


  • Wasn't sure what i was going to think, always the same when you start a new series. After reading the Justice series, i did't think Mel's books could get any better how wrong was IA gripping story line right from the start, with twists and turns along the way, and as for the ending welll.I WASNT EXPECTING THAT.i'm liking Hero all ready, and think he's got lots to look forward tofantastic, all i can say is bring on the next one cant wait


  • After finishing the excellent Justice series I couldn't wait to read more from the fantastic Mel Comley. 'Torn Apart' provided me with that very opportunity. And I was not disappointed If you are not familiar with Mel's work then you are truly missing out. Another five star read from a five star author.

  • A compact story of Hero and police proceedings.Packed story about gangs and turf wars graphic stat to the book.First in the series, would read more.


  • Really enjoyed this story. I felt Hero's frustrations with being hog-tied and unable to adequately fight these gangs. The limitations of British police work came across clearly in this story, especially when compared to the freedom American officers have in fighting crime. The story is well-written, with good action, and a good balance between the protangist's life at work and home. The ending absolutely came out of left-field; the mark of an excellent author. Very pleased.


  • I loved this first book in the series by Mel. I had already read book 2 but it didn't really matter. As usual, Mel writes a fast paced & gritty story that keeps you on your toes from start to finish. I cannot rate Mels books highly enough


  • Not my cup of teaI like thrillers and crime novels but I found myself tuning out large portions of this book and having to reread.


  • Fantastic book my MA Comley. I wasn't too sure about Hero at first but he's starting to grow on me. Looking forward to reading the next book in the series.

  • I was lucky to receive this free for a honest review from The Book Club on Facebook. Saskia picks up her son from boarding school at the start of half term and, as a treat, they call into McDonalds for tea before the drive home. This is the start of the book and what happens next was explosive. Gang warfare is rife in Manchester, and Hero Nelson of the Manchester Murder Investigation Team have a tough job trying to catch, and successfully prosecute, the gang members for crimes. ASBOs seem to be [...]


  • Detective Inspector Hero Nelson is a complicated man. The stresses of his job make him drink too much. His wife goes out of her way to be understanding which only leaves him feeling all the more guilty. His son needs more of his time. Oh, yeah, and his wife wants another child. And that's just his personal life. On top of all that, Hero must solve the murders of a wealthy woman and her son, while prostitutes and gang members are falling like flies. All of the killings must be connected, but how [...]


  • This is the first in a new series of books. It is a real page turner and I read it in 1 day as I was so engrossed in the story.D.I. Hero Nelson and his partner Sgt Julie Shaw come across as likeable characters. They are by no means perfect, both have their faults, but that is what makes them so believable.This book is brutal and hard-hitting. It paints a disturbing picture of the gang culture in Britain's inner-cities. It also makes you realise how the police have their hands tied in so many sit [...]


  • This was a new series and I was a bit worried there wasn't going to be Pete in it (Pete is my book boyfriend of forever), but I like Mel's writing, so it wasn't really a good reason to pass on this novel. As usual, you'll find what I love in her stories: intriguing plot with a certain degree of mystery, characters you can't but like (or hate), and twists. Ahhh the twistsI won't spoil, but I really didn't see the last one coming, and boy it hit me like a train !I am looking forward to reading mor [...]


  • This is another fantastic series start by Comley. It has all the things I love in her books: A start with a horrific murder, tough cops, bad guys who always get what they deserve, plot twists and turns and an ending with a shocker. I wasn't sure what I thought of the main character, Hero, in the beginning, but as the book went on, his personality came out and the more I learned, the more I liked him. I would have liked to have had more of Hero's partner, Julie, in the book to balance him out a l [...]


  • WOW! STARTED OUT WITH A VERY VIOLENT MURDER/RAPE SCENE. AS I CONTINUED TO READ, I WONDERED, WHAT MAKE PEOPLE DO SOME OF THE THINGS THEY DO. . . CAUSE THEY CAN! THIS REMINDED ME A BIT OF "CLOCKWORK ORANGE" GOOD-GRIEF THIS IS CRAZY. I LIKE THE STORY LINE EVEN THOUGH IT HAD SO MANY SHOCKINGLY TERRIBLE THINGS HAPPENING, CAUSE YOU KNOW THE'RE GANGS WHO ACTUALLY DO THAT AND WORST. THAT'S A SCARY THOUGHT. THE ENDING WOW, HAD ME STUMPED (love when that happens) UP TO NEARLY THE LAST PAGE WHEN IT WAS REV [...]


  • Mel Comley. New SeriesTorn Apart.This is the first in what I hope is going to be a long running series.you will love this book from the very beginning . Hero is the main character and he carries it well. There are some gruesome murders much in the James Patterson mould. The book starts with a bang and never dropped the pace all the way through. This book is highly recommended and like me you will be eagerly awaiting the sequel.5 stars. 01 December 2013.


  • Not as good as the Justice seriesI liked this first book of the Hero series, but not as much as the Justice series. There was a lot less interaction between the reader and the personal life of Hero Nelson. There just wasn't much of a connection.The ending pissed me off a bit. I don't know if the comments made by the author were her own personal opinions or were the thoughts of Hero, but it sounds as if Hero didn't consider himself a real father because Louie was his stepson.


  • Wow.I'm sitting here smiling thinking how much I enjoyed this book,Mel comely has don't it again !!!! pulled me in and now I'm HOOKED and yes I'm going straight on to book two END RESULT This is a great mystery thriller crime series storyline perfect balance of work and home life so you get to know each and everyone without being too complicated.well done Mel you have done it again one happy fan .


  • Was shocked from the get-go with this book. Could visually imagine it happening as London is rife with gangs, but yet I still gasped with horror at some of the scenes.I enjoyed reading a male lead DI as I've read a lot of strong female characters lately. Especially seeing Hero out of work and in the TA, doing what he likes. I thought that was an interesting way of looking into his personal life. Didn't guess the killer until the end, so that's always the sign of a great book.


  • This book had a bit of everything, it shows a whole different side then what i have seen previously. I love the fact that this dealt with gang warfare.Hero is a great person and his wife is very special. It is great to see that the ,artists hadn't fallen apart which seems to be the case a lot of times.


  • An ordinary plot, and underdeveloped characters! Yet 'Torn Apart' gets 4 stars for its readability devoid of pleonasms and pretensions. I hope Comley thinks up a slightly more intricate theme for his next novel.


  • It was ok. I wasn't as riveted as I normally am with a Thriller. It was a good enough read but I worked out who the killer was fairly early on so the ending wasn't as much of a shocker as I am used to from other Thriller writers.
