'bad blood' - AUGUSTUS MAINWARING
Published by Manning Group Limited
The much sought-after 'Bad Blood' series from the enigmatic New Zealand writer Sir Augustus Mainwaring Lynch Bt.
'Bad Blood' readers will be transported throughout Latin America on gut-wrenching journeys encompassing the full gamut of human relationships, unrequited love, horrendous violence and horrible betrayal.
When Augustus Mainwaring set out from New Zealand for Mexico via Argentina in December 2008 little did he know that the journey would lead to his writing a series of stories which became the basis for a famous Latin American 'telenovela' (television soap opera) called 'Bad Blood' ('Mala Sangre' in Spanish).
'Bad Blood Prologue' is the fascinating story of Augustus' journey and how he became a writer.
Augustus' first story 'Demise of the Pig People' is a riveting tale set in Mexico concerning a Mexican heartthrob called Adonis Poderoso Chingada and his relatives and how in a stunning twist of fate they are sucked into a vortex of blackmail, passion, revenge and murder when they become involved with the fabulously wealthy Lamborgina family.
Subsequent stories Augustus came to write are equally shocking and contentious and they too served as the basis for plots in the top-rating Mala Sangre TV series with ‘Mas Mala Sangre’ (More Bad Blood’), ‘Bastante Mala Sangre’ (Plenty of Bad Blood’), ‘Demasiado Mala Sangre’ (Too Much Bad Blood) and ‘Aun Mas Mala Sangre’ (Even More Bad Blood).
