Blood Relatives

(2015)
A novel by

 
An incredible debut novel: a coming-of-age tale set against the backdrop of the Yorkshire Ripper murders, 'full of daring, authenticity and wit' (Rachel Cusk).

"The milkman found her. On Prince Philip Playing Fields. He crossed the dew-soaked grass toward what he took to be a bundle of clothes, but then he came across a discarded shoe, and then t' mutilated body. Her name wor Wilma McCann."

Leeds, late 1975, and a body has been found on Prince Philip Playing Fields. Ricky, teenage delivery van boy for Corona pop, will be late for The Matterhorn Man. In the years that follow until his capture, the Yorkshire Ripper and Rick's own life draw ever closer, with unforeseen consequences. Set in a time in England's history of upheaval and change, both personal and social, this is a story told in an unforgettable voice.
