Blood Chords on Kindle
An amorous assignation or two, a bit of adventure, a few pints and a dangerous mystery to solve.
Accrington (I-Newswire) October 21, 2012 - An amorous assignation or two, a bit of adventure, a few pints and a dangerous mystery to solve. This is the world of Billy Blood, slap and tickler par excellence, machine operator and part time rock n roller. Billy also has a great skill, a solver of mysteries, with a touch of alchemy thrown in.
Join Billy and his mate and drummer Fred, long suffering girl friend Kate, femme fatale Tina, wanna be gangster Page and a host of others as they lurch from one adventure to another, with Billy deploying his passion one minute and flying fists the next.
It's a dangerous game, and Billy plays it out to the full. Can he finish on the winning side, will his analytic sleuthing be successful? The answer to these questions surprises even Billy himself.
Chapter 1 starts like this-
The sweat poured from Billy's forehead, the veins in his head and neck stood out like the proverbial knotted twine, only more so, and tiny flecks of saliva jumped from his mouth at fairly regular intervals, making multi coloured parabolas as the arc lights constantly changed colour. It was definitely not a pretty sight. That did'nt seem to bother the occupants of the public lounge in the Spread Eagle Oakington.
Mind you, very little would have bothered them at that time on a Saturday night. Maybe if the beer supply was curtailed, that would have had some effect, but even that might have been muted as most of those present had probably imbibed more than enough.
Bin a workin' all weeek tryin' t'raise a dollar
Billy warbled, giving Fred the nod that this would be their last number. Billy liked Eddie Cochran, for a number of reasons. One being that his dad, a one time doorman at the Empire Dance Hall just down the road from the Spread Eagle, had been mad keen and had collected all Eddie's records, and had erected a veritable shrine to the singer in his bedroom after Eddie's untimely death.
That had probably been the last straw for Doreen, Billy's mum, who had very charitably given her wayward husband another chance after she'd gone to the cinema with a friend and found Billy's dad locked in a very uncomfortable but clearly very stimulating position with the ice cream usherette.
Years later, after the shock and pain had long since gone, Doreen could joke about it all, ' I wondered why that bloody ice cream were so soft an' soggy ', she'd say, making her friends shake with laughter.
Anyway, even though his parents split had deeply affected him, and had alienated him to some extent from his dad, the fascination with, some would say the deification of Eddie Cochran, not only continued but seemed to intensify.
