Publisher's Summary

Would you commit murder, just to fit in?
The UK is gripped by the threat of gang violence - the media is building on that hysteria, convincing us that knife crime is rife and the streets are flooded with guns and drugs. So when a member of a notorious girl gang is charged with a brutal murder, sympathy is in short supply. Enter Lilly Valentine, a tough talking lawyer who is never prepared to take things at face value and is determined to uncover the truth, whatever the cost.
A gripping crime novel that will force every listener to reassess what they think they know about society and gang culture.
About the author: Helen grew up in Pontefract, West Yorkshire. At 18 she went to Hull University and left three years later with a tattoo on her shoulder and a law degree. She became a lawyer in Peckham and soon had a loyal following of teenagers needing legal advice and bus fares. She ended up working in Luton, working predominantly for children going through the care system.

I would give no stars if possible

I hated this from the minute I started listening - the gang fight - the awful speech - etc. but when I got to the part where the heroine/solicitor was not capable of keeping staff because she was so untidy and disorganised - and then when we caught her trying to make a 360 degree circuit/twirl on her secretary's office chair, I really decide that I had better things to do.

I bought this based on quite good reviews - but my goodness, I found it abysmal in both characters AND writing.

Not a book I would recommend

What would have made Blood Rush better?

Difficult to say. The book was awful from beginning to end with a very weak storyline and not particularly well narrated.

Has Blood Rush put you off other books in this genre?


Would you be willing to try another one of Imogen Church’s performances?

Don't think so

What character would you cut from Blood Rush?

The pathetic do-good solicitor.
