text review of Bad Blood Rising written by Eva Carmichael
Murder, girls & Bad Men
When a young prostitute is murdered by her vicious pimp, Karl Maddox, he thinks that the terrible secret she had threatened to expose has been buried with her. Eighteen years later, the daughter of the murdered woman arrives in Leeds searching for answers.
Slowly, but surely, Karl's life as the wealthy, powerful kingpin of his North of England clubland empire begins to unravel. Loyalty is replaced by treachery and friendship is replaced by hatred.
Is Karl about to find out that no secret can be buried forever?
