Summary

There’s been a public disaster, and someone wants to sweep it under the rug. A journalist is asking questions, and she stumbles across another story, from several years ago. Any connection seems like pure speculation – but then her family is threatened. A short thriller playing on two historical events. 


Journalist Laura Schreiner faces a painful decision. She has asked too many questions, and now the lives of her children are in danger. 


A catastrophe has taken place, and a curiously large number of people care remarkably little about investigating it. The ambitious young journalist isn’t going to take it lying down. During her research, she meets someone who tries to convince her that there is a connection to another unresolved drama. It might just be wild speculation – but her children have been kidnapped. Whoever is behind it is powerful and ruthless. 


This short thriller draws the pieces of its puzzle from the mix of clues and theories surrounding a plane crash more than 30 years ago. 


This is a work of fiction. Although it is set against a backdrop of historical events, the plot is entirely the product of the author’s imagination.

    Yet they are unaware that their own fathers - the two men they hate most in all the world - are in league with these vicious criminals from the East End.
     
    Upon this devastating realisation, they know only the violence of action will protect the ones they love from the brutal men who have blighted their lives for so long.
     
    So at fourteen, they swear an oath to be blood brothers forever and seal a pact to kill their fathers - the only sure way they can see of saving Joe’s sister and Sean’s mum from certain death.
     
    It is a childish pledge but in years to follow it will come to mean everything. Soon they discover that retribution costs and as a result of their actions Sean and Joe’s lives are set upon a path strewn with tragedy and loss. Along the way they will find success, power and love but they too will come at a price. Spanning thirty years, Bad Blood encompasses the violence of gangland London, the glamorous scandals of Hollywood and the debauched excesses of Las Vegas.

    New York Times bestselling author Laura Lippman has been hailed as one of the best crime fiction writers in America today, winning virtually every major award in the genre. The author of the enormously popular series featuring Baltimore P.I. Tess Monaghan as well as three critically lauded stand-alone novels, Lippman now turns her attention to short stories—and reveals another level of mastery. 
    Lippman sets many of the stories in this sterling anthology, Hardly Knew Her, in familiar territory: her beloved Baltimore, from downtown to its affluent suburbs, where successful businessmen go to shocking lengths to protect what they have or ruthlessly expand their holdings, while dissatisfied wives find murderous ways to escape their lives. But Lippman is also unafraid to travel—to New Orleans, to an unnamed southwestern city, and even to Dublin, the backdrop for the lethal clash of two not-so-innocents abroad. Tess Monaghan is here, in two stories and a profile, aligning herself with various underdogs. And in her extraordinary, never-before-published novella, Scratch a Woman, Lippman takes us deep into the private world of a high-priced call girl/madam and devoted soccer mom, exploring the mystery of what may, in fact, be written in the blood. 
    Each of these ingenious tales is a gem—sometimes poignant, sometimes humorous, always filled with delightfully unanticipated twists and reversals. For people who have yet to read Lippman, get ready to experience the spellbinding power of "one of today's most pleasing storytellers, hailed for her keen psychological insights and her compelling characterizations," (San Diego Union-Tribune), who has "invigorated the crime fiction arena with smart, innovative, and exciting work" (George Pelecanos). As for longtime devotees of her multiple award-winning novels, you'll discover that you hardly know her.
