Today’s stops on my blog tour are at Laurie’s Interviews and Ty Johnston’s blogs. Enjoy two special interviews, excerpts from Arctic Wargame and enter the contest to win a Kindle copy of this spy thriller.

Plus, enjoy my review of Bloodman, by Robert Pobi.


My first piece of advice: do not read this book in the evening or at night. It will give you the worst nightmares of your life!

The Bloodman is the story of Jake Cole, an FBI contractor, blessed—or perhaps cursed—with the ability to read and understand the clues at a murder scene. After receiving news of his father accident—in which he lit himself up and almost burned to death—Jake returns to his home town of Montauk, New York. As memories of the past begin to trouble him, he learns about a local double homicide. A mother and a child have been skinned alive.

Mr. Pobi’s writing is dark, graphic and detailed. The crimes depicted are horrific and the images portrayed very disturbing. The work of a serial killer described in stomach-churning language. The pace of the novel is good, the storyline develops well and the characters are intriguing. The reader will want to turn page after page to learn about the murderer and how Jake will catch this monster.

Jake’s past is burdened with sadness, guilt and misery. His mother was murdered in the same horrific way as the new victims. His father, a renowned painter, grew distant and never made time for Jake. As he works toward discovering the killer, Jake finds out more about his past that will help define his future.

Who is the Bloodman? How will Jake catch him? What is he willing to sacrifice in order to discover the truth about the Bloodman and about himself?
