Book Review: Bad Blood by Gary Kemble


Disclosure: I got sent a free copy of this book via Net Galley.


This book counts towards the A to Z Reading Challenge and Beat The Backlist.



Freelance journalist Harry Hendrick is beginning to realise that you’re only as good as your last exclusive, and buzz doesn’t pay the bills, when he’s blackmailed by the police into investigating a series of bizarre suicides.
Those investigations lead him into the web of Mistress Hel, who plies her dark arts from her luxurious suburban lair. With continuing challenges in his personal and professional life, can Harry resist her seductive power? Or the thrill of danger itself?

  1. Thanks for the review. I am not sure it's my type of book but it does have an interesting premise.

    1. Thanks. It was. Horror, occult, thriller, erotica... there was a bit of everything.

  3. I love a good thriller, but I am a bit squeamish about horror and gore

    1. I'm not big on horror and gore either. This wasn't too much though. Definitely new reading territory for me, especially with the erotic elements mixed in with it.

    1. It was more intense than scary although there were a few bits that had me on edge.

  7. Poor Mistress Hel... maybe she's just a misunderstood ragamuffin looking for love. :) Loved your video, thanks!

    1. She did have a back story which explained a lot, but I wouldn't say she's looking for love ;)

    1. I hadn't heard of them either until I got this one on Net Galley. Gary Kemble is an Australian author, and this is book 2 in the series.

  12. I like that intense books like this aren't as unusual as they used to be. I think your review has tweaked my TBR senses for sure.
