Bad Blood

Book 0.5, Emily Swanson Mystery Thriller Series

This book is available for download with iBooks on your Mac or iOS device, and with iTunes on your computer. Books can be read with iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.


She was going to die down here. Alone. In the dark.

With just weeks until her final exams, gifted student teacher Emily is determined to let nothing get in her way.

Then her housemate disappears.

Despite Emily's concerns, no one seems to care about Becky Briar - her bluntness and lack of empathy have earned her few real friends.

And when an initial police inquiry fails to take her disappearance seriously, Emily puts studying aside to start her own investigation.

Tracing Becky's last known movements, she makes a shocking discovery: her housemate has been leading a troubling double life. One that may have had terrible consequences.

Suddenly caught in a dangerous web of deceit, and pursued by those who want the truth to stay buried, Emily may be Becky's only hope.

But with time running out and her own future hanging in the balance, can Emily find her before it's too late?

Set four years before the events of Lost Lives, Bad Blood is a gripping standalone prequel that can be enjoyed by both fans and series newcomers.

Bad Blood

What fun to go back to where Emily's adventures began and get a glimpse of her determination to solve mysteries even when she was in school. As with all of Malcolm Richards's books, this one is well written and keeps you turning pages to see what will happen next. I highly recommend reading Bad Blood.

Bad Blood

I don't usually enjoy prequels, so this was a pleasant surprise. I liked getting to know Emily before her life began to spiral down. A young woman with a determined sense of loyalty, even for someone who clearly doesn't deserve it. The qualities she shows in this book show why she is able to survive the horrible mishaps that the future holds for her. I never expected the roommate to be the villian. I was hoping for the Chancellor. Thanks for a great read !!

Bad Blood

What a great book! I enjoyed reading a prequel and getting to know Emily before she became a teacher. She is a strong and caring character who is not afraid to seek the truth. Bad blood had me guessing until the very end! It is written so well I was totally hooked and could not put it down. I think it would make a great movie!
