Book Description

Bad Blood is an epic gangster thriller in the crime genre which dispenses blood and justice in equal measure and is yet another of Kris Lillyman's stunning, action packed books.

The story focuses on Joe and Sean; boyhood pals so in awe of the London gangsters who have recently infested the post war streets of their bomb ravaged neighbourhood.

Yet they are unaware that their own fathers - the two men they hate most in all the world - are in league with these vicious criminals from the East End.

Upon this devastating realisation, they know only the violence of action will protect the ones they love from the brutal men who have blighted their lives for so long.

So at fourteen, they swear an oath to be blood brothers forever and seal a pact to kill their fathers - the only sure way they can see of saving Joe’s sister and Sean’s mum from certain death.

It is a childish pledge but in years to follow it will come to mean everything. Soon they discover that retribution costs and as a result of their actions Sean and Joe’s lives are set upon a path strewn with tragedy and loss. Along the way they will find success, power and love but they too will come at a price. Spanning thirty years, Bad Blood encompasses the violence of gangland London, the glamorous scandals of Hollywood and the debauched excesses of Las Vegas.

1.0 out of 5 stars Waste of money 27 Sept. 2015
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book was absolute rubbish a very weak and limp story. The people that reviewed and said they couldn't put it down must have been Mr Lillymans family and friends who didn't want to upset him. Please don't waste your money.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best read I've had in ages! 4 Sept. 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I read this book at first because it was written by my friends husband, with no pre conceived notion about it. Then found I couldn't put it down! It's story has more plots and twists than a Martina Cole novel. Just as you think nothing else can happen to Joe, Sean or Sarah a new thread of the story starts to unravel. The story is very long, but not once did I feel like what I was reading wasn't relevant to the overall story of the main characters. Go on everybody, if you don't read anything else this year, read this! It's definitely a must read for all adults, male and female!

5.0 out of 5 stars Better than I expected 23 Dec. 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
As Kris is my nephew I didn't imagine that he could be a good author as well as an exceptional cartoonist. It is a very well written gripping story. My only criticism is that there are a few spelling mistakes but, apart from these, he should be very pleased with it.
I'm a bit worried about where he got his experience of gangland :-) . Perhaps when I see him next I should see if he has a fedora and a pair of dark glasses in a cupboard.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant - nothing else just brilliant 29 Sept. 2015
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I loved this book! Reminded me of the first of Jackie Collins 'Santangelo' novels but a Brit & more 'blokey'
version. Set in London & then later on in Vegas the book follows Sean & Joe from kids to adults, from having nothing to having everything. Plenty of action, violence, emotion & a bit of sex thrown in aswell. Quite a long book but never boring - a real page turner! Loved it & will definitely read the follow up.
