Wealthy heiress Kerenza Trezise was about to marry the man she loved…until she killed herself in front of the entire wedding party.

Private investigator Blake Hollow is hired to find out why. Physically and emotionally damaged by a near-death encounter with a serial killer, Blake knows this case is an opportunity to relaunch her struggling P.I. business.

But as she attempts to infiltrate one of Cornwall's richest families at their impressive Frenchman's Creek estate, she learns that the Trezises have their own dark secrets to protect, and a shocking legacy of madness, horror, and death.

Worse still, they’ll do anything to stop Blake’s private investigation from revealing the truth, including deception, intimidation, and perhaps even murder.

They say family is forever. But they have never met the Trezise family...

Down in the Blood is a fast-paced and creepy Gothic murder mystery that draws on Cornish folklore and the occult. Fans of British crime fiction will love tenacious private detective Blake Hollow as she delves into another confounding murder case.

Another gripping tale

As this is the 2nd book in the series You get even more insight into Blake Hollow. All her demons are laid bare which is refreshing as her character isn’t all hearts & flowers. Again Malcolm Richards has given you a plot that keeps the pages turning to the very end.

Death at a mansion on a run-down private estate worthy of agatha Cristy

inirially setout as animposible case to start but, once a way in is found , clues and suspects mount. The back story keeps Blake Hollows character grounded and the tales unfolding keeps you guessing most of the way. in all an adictove and enjoyable read for enthusiasts of the detective novel.

Finally chilling

What would you think if you were at a wedding and instead of a ceremony it is suicide? Horrified? Baffled? Blake gets this case to find out the answers. Italics has the ingredient I am fond of-secrets. Will the legacy make it that simple to get the answers? Would not be worth the read if that simple. Turn the pages to see how chilling Blake finds this to be.

Great Thriller with lots of twists

Blake has new case. She's investigating the mysterery surrounding the apparent suicide of a woman who belongs to a very strange family. A family who likes to keep to themselves. This story is suspenseful and at times quite creepy. Some of it I did see coming, other parts I definitely didn't. Thoroughly enjoyable and easy to read. Well written and didn't notice any annoying spelling errors, which a lot of books seem to have.
This book can be read alone as everything from the previous Blake Hollow book is explained. However, I would personally recommend starting with the first one in the series before moving on to this.
