What to expect

BOOK 2 in the FLESH AND BLOOD series, BLOOD MOTHER shifts to the 70s to tell the troubled tale of one East London family. Perfect for fans of Kimberley Chambers, Martina Cole and Mandasue Heller.

***********

1970s London has stopped swinging, but it’s not staying still.

Babs thought she had all the world ahead of her. Then she got pregnant and the father did a runner.

Salvation comes in the form of a man who’ll look after her. Or so she thinks.

But Stan Miller is the devil in disguise…and over the next twenty years, Babs will have reason to regret she ever met him. Can she protect her family – or will he get the better of her?

The second thrilling book in the FLESH AND BLOOD series, BLOOD MOTHER captures a different world from today. But some things still hold true: be careful what you wish for, and watch out for who you trust…

Critics Review

  • Praise for Dreda Say Mitchell

    :
  • A gripping and thrilling read by a wonderful lady and fab author

    Kimberley Chambers on BLOOD SISTER
  • Dialogue is Mitchell’s forte, and here it fizzes and crackles as the trio’s fortunes rise and fall

    The Sunday Times
  • This is strong and provocative writing…nails the psychology of her characters freighting in layers that propel the book out of its crowded genre into the realms of something more thought-provoking and complex.

    Barry Forshaw, I Paper
  • A terrific tale, well told and totally gripping

    Susan Wilkins, author of The Informant
  • Fast, riveting and moving. Will be great to see what skullduggery some of these characters get up to next time round

    Anna Smith, author of Rough Cut
