If you can’t trust your family, who can you trust…?
Glasgow gangster Jamie Gray and his fellow Blood Brothers rule the Gallowburn Estate with an iron fist. No one messes around on their turf without consequences.
But when Jamie’s erstwhile dad, Jason Gray, reappears after many years away – some of them spent behind bars – the Blood Brothers are drawn into the murky and dangerous world of the toughest gangster of them all – The Queen of Glasgow, Toni McVay.
Toni is the head of the most powerful organised crime family in Scotland and, as the psychotic leader enjoys scooping out the eyeballs of those who displease her, Jamie has no option but to do her bidding.
With the love of his life Allegra still missing, his enemies closing in, and his family’s safety at risk, Jamie Gray faces the battle of his life. But with his father’s bad blood running through his veins, and the bravery and brains he has inherited from his mother Jackie, Jamie has all the tools he needs to survive.
Bad Blood by Heather Atkinson is book two in the Gallowburn Series. I think it would be helpful to read book one, Blood Brothers, before reading this one. It makes the background story really make sense.
As with the first book, I was obsessed with the characters. I feel this author really knows how to develop believable characters that keep the story moving forward.
Bad Blood is an action packed, gangland thriller. I was sucked in pretty quickly, and the action never stopped. I can’t wait to read more from Heather Atkinson!
