Blood Brothers is the new novel from Wendy Mason, author of The Wolf Project.
It is a modern adventure story with adult romance, a little tragedy and just a tiny sprinkling of horror and suspense.
The story mixes the world of a troubled eighties' rock god with that of an international celebrity wrestling star and his sinister twin brother.
And then of course there is the lovely Jenny!
Jenny goes to school with the twins, Terry, and the shadowy and distinctly odd, Georgy. She doesn't have much to do with them when they are kids. And she has no idea how their lives will intertwine with hers later, nor the tragic and frightening consequences.
Young Jenny is determined to go on her own journey. She gets the chance when she meets the glamorous, Julian; a man desperately in need of a wife!
Terry goes on to become the tough and edgy, Steve Chance, celebrity wrestler; whilst Georgy has his own private interests.
The plot moves between quite different worlds. We travel from a quiet suburban house in the English Midlands to taste life in five star hotels in London and Paris. Then we move on to play in the casinos of Las Vegas; returning to visit a rather unusual clinic somewhere in the English countryside and even to sample life in prison.
There is a love story, of course. But it is a complicated, quirky and distinctly adult one! Jenny doesn't meet her prince, marry and then live happily ever after. At least, not for a while!
Blood Brothers mixes the world of rock and the excitement of international celebrity wrestling with a touch of the criminal underworld.
