Bad Blood
by Nick Oldham

“One of the best in a consistently excellent series—add it to the growing list of mysteries starring retired cops (Harry Bosch, John Rebus) who can’t stay out of harm’s way” Booklist Starred Review

Former DCI Henry Christie is forced out of retirement when he and his family are targeted by a team of determined assassins, in the twenty-fourth gripping novel in the mystery series.

As Henry Christie settles into a new life running The Tawny Owl pub with his fiancée Alison, their rural idyll is disrupted by a violent intruder. After Henry foils a kidnap attempt on Alison’s daughter, it becomes clear that he and his family have become the targets of a ruthless professional killer. But who – and why?

At the same time, Henry witnesses the murder of a local multi-millionaire – and unwittingly steps into a conspiracy at the highest level.

Pursued by a team of determined assassins, Henry must also defend himself against an unhinged killer on a personal vendetta who will stop at nothing to take back what he believes is rightfully his … bad blood will flow.
