Blood Island

H. Terrell Griffin

4 out of 5

I was loving this book until the author took that dangerous left turn into the land of “best-friend-with-Cancer” cliché, which ended up in a total tail spin into the land of “my-friend-the-bartender-who-has-better-computer-hacking-skills-then-the-FBI” nightmare. Come on- really!

Griffin has real talent. A fast paced thriller that has you turning pages until you hit the roadblocks that seem to separate the great writers from everyone else.

Third in the Matt Royal series.

Life is looking good in Longboat Key, Florida, for retired attorney Matt Royal; that is until his ex-wife, the love of his life, appears and asks for Matt’s help in locating her missing stepdaughter. What first appears as a spring break gone wild scenario, Matt and friends are drawn into the world of a religious fanatic who is determined to bring the world to its knees.

As I said, great fast passed thriller, just wish he would have been more creative with a couple of his characters.
