Synopsis

Bad Blood by S. J. Rozan

A Bill Smith/Lydia Chin Crime Novel. Most people believe Jimmy Antonelli is bad to the bone. New York detective - and an old friend of the family - Bill Smith is one of the few people who has ever been willing to give Jimmy a second chance. Given his own brushes with the law, Bill has an unsurprising sympathy for the youngest Antonelli brother. But this time Jimmy has gone too far...

Reviews

'Bad Blood is S.J.Rozan at her best...the tension and intrigue never let up. She constantly has you looking over your shoulder into the dark' Michael Connelly

'Classy...well-built plots...sturdy characters...out in the woods, with nothing but space between him and the sky, Smith isn't just tough. He's alive.' New York Times

'With the Bill Smith and Lydia Chin mysteries, S.J. Rozan has written the most consistently compelling series of traditional detective novels published in this decade. Bad Blood combines the sure, controlled prose of Ross MacDonald with the fury of early Hammet. Now is the time to discover what Rozan's loyal readership has known all along.' George Pelecanos

'The superlatives keep coming for the detective duo of Lydia Chin and Bill Smith, now clearly established as one of the best PI parings in contemporary mystery fiction...superior plotting, deft characterisations, and beautiful use of setting that distinguish her series. Crime fiction fans of all kinds - from the coziest to the most hard-boiled - sing the praises of this series; recommend it highly to any mystery readers who aren't yet hooked. Those that are will be standing in line.' Booklist
