"A pulse-pounding thriller with a charming protagonist" (Kirkus Reviews), this gripping ebook continues the story that began in The Devil’s Necktie.My Review:
Jack Bertolino’s son, Chris, was the victim of a brutal murder attempt and Vincent Cardona, a mafia boss, provided information that helped Jack take down the perpetrator of the crime. Jack accepted the favor knowing there’d be blowback. In Blond Cargo the mobster’s daughter has gone missing and Cardona turned in his chit. Jack discovers that the young, blond, mafia princess has been kidnapped and imprisoned while rich, politically connected men negotiate her value as a sex slave.
A sizzling whodunit for fans of James Patterson and Patricia Cornwell, Blond Cargo taps into the real-life crime world to deliver a thrilling, action-packed story that will keep you on the edge of your seat until the explosive, unprecedented finale.
I love reading books from John Lansing in the Jack Bertolino's series. He is a class act Private Investigator that really gives you a stunning read in a thriller/mystery story that I really enjoy reading.
If you are like me and really want a good quality read and love mysteries or thrillers, you really need to pick up some of John Lansing's books, especially the Jack Bertolino's series. It's the right amount of mystery with a mix of his love life mixed in and what I like the most is that it's not prone to give really gory details about the dead bodies, just a general description.
I guess if you like horror stories, then it's appropriate for that genre, but in mysteries, I prefer not to have too much information about the dead bodies, but more on the content of how the villain is caught and how the good guys went about getting their bad guy.
