"Blood Drama is wildly entertaining with fast-paced dialogue and plot twists caroming like a steel ball in a pinball machine." -Linda Hitchcock, BookTrib
In the crossover thriller BLOOD DRAMA, graduate student Ian Nash, after losing his girlfriend, gets dropped from a Ph.D. program in theatre.
When he stops at a local coffee shop in the lobby of a bank to apply for a job, the proverbial organic matter hits the fan. A gang of four robs the bank, and things get bloody. Ian is taken hostage by the robbers when the police show up. Now he has to save his life.
My Review of Blood Drama:
I loved this book! It is such a work in progress, like most people are. Ian starts out being a guy who scares easily, gets excited easily and really has no sense of what is going on around him. He seems what I call "sheltered" and really needs a wake up call. I don't think he even knows really why he was still in school or what he was really doing.
He's the wrong place at the wrong time when this bank robbery happens. Yes, it was bad and some people were killed, but in some ways, this was probably the best thing that had ever happened to him because he is finally forced to grow up and start acting like a man and not a quivering mass of nothing.
You quickly grow to love him and of course the FBI agent Medina is finally starting to pay attention to him also about halfway into the story. What these two accomplish is mind boggling and finally, they just might get what they each so richly deserve.
If you love mystery/murder/thrillers, then you are going to want to read this book! It will keep you on the edge all the way through. It's really a must read.
