Blood Standard (Isaiah Coleridge #1)

Isaiah Coleridge is a mob enforcer in Alaska--he's tough, seen a lot, and dished out more. But when he forcibly ends the moneymaking scheme of a made man, he gets in the kind of trouble that can lead to a bullet behind the ear. Saved by the grace of his boss and exiled to upstate New York, Isaiah begins a new life, a quiet life without gunshots or explosions. Except a teenage girl disappears, and Isaiah isn't one to let that slip by. And delving into the underworld to track this missing girl will get him exactly the kind of notice he was warned to avoid....

Blood Standard (Isaiah Coleridge #1) Reviews

  • Dave

    Laird Barron's "Blood Standard" is a top-notch crime fiction story that has a great narrative voice even from the beginning. Take a half-Maori (a Polynesian ethnic group who is indigenous to New Zealand) mobbed-up enforcer at odds with his ex-military father (who killed his mother) and finds himself exiled by the Outfit from Alaska to the Hudson River Valley. Talk about two wildly different neighborhoods. Isaiah Coleridge is a tough guy with a heart of gold, keen about wreaking mayhem among his ...more

    Isaiah Coleridge is a half-Maori mob enforcer in Alaska until he upsets the wrong people and gets exiled to upstate New York. He tries to begin a quiet new life but when a teen girl goes missing, he can't help becoming involved. This story was fast-paced and a great fit for fans of classic, hard-boiled noir stories. There's a lot of fast-talking quippy characters and meetings in smoky rooms. I enjoyed Isaiah as a character, he has enough heart and gruffness to be great. Action heavy crime storie ...more

    Apparently Mr. Barron is just as good at writing detective stories as he is cosmic horror, who knew?

  • Up All Night With Books

    In Laird Barron's crime novel Blood Standard, its a world of violence and crime where no one can ever believe that they’re safe until they’ve gotten out. Isaiah Coleridge is a badass by definition. He has seen the worst that people can do and does not exactly have a squeaky-clean record himself. Located in the cold, the tundra of Alaska Isaiah soon finds himself caught up in a plot that is bigger than he ever intended. Isaiah has stumbled into a moneymaking scheme from one of the big players up ...more

    I thoroughly enjoyed Blood Standard. I had read a lot of Thrillers and Men's Crime novels growing up and had stopped reading them because they become formulaic and predictable. This is a bit more than your average Men's Crime novel and there is also a Mystery (or two) at the heart of the Story that is packed with characters and several plots and subplots. None of the characters in the story seem very cliche to me. Even some of the bad guys have some depth and that is rare in a lot of Crime Novel ...more

    Laird Barron's crime novel Blood Standard is a a great, dark take on the Raymond Chandler/Robert B. Parker school of "tarnished knights." Though it's not a horror novel like Barron's previous books, it does have at least one pretty horrific moment and a nice shout out to the late, great Michael Shea. Definitely on the the first great genre novels of 2018.

  • Hollis

    The concept of this mob-enforcer turned fixer pseudo detective novel is fascinating. Throw in a diverse lead (half Maori, but 100% badass) who has a weakness for dogs, action the like you would see in a Jason Statham-style movie, violence, gangs, politics, dirty cops, and occasionally laugh out loud dialogue, and BLOOD STANDARD probably deserves all the stars. But I felt pretty removed from the story, perhaps due to the style of writing, or perhaps because for all the seriousness of the plot, no ...more
