Bad Blood Rising… the gritty debut crime novel from Eva Carmichael. When a young prostitute is murdered by her pimp, Karl Maddox, he thinks the terrible secret she had threatened to expose is buried with her. But when the murdered prostitute’s daughter arrives in Leeds eighteen years later, she is seeking answers.
Slowly but surely, Karl’s life as the wealthy, powerful kingpin of his clubland empire begins to unravel as loyalty is replaced by treachery, and friendship is replaced by hatred. Is Karl about to find out that no secret can remain buried forever?
“Gripping, gritty story where everyone’s past threatens to catch up with them. The author manages to spin the threads together so that you end up needing to know how it’s all going to turn out for everyone.”
