A Blood Thing Reviews

This follows the Kane family as they deal with a manipulative and highly intelligent blackmailer who is intent on wreacking havoc on every single one of them. This is a family of prominence and wealth ...more
A Blood Thing due out on June 5. A great read! Once I started, I could not put it down. Lots of suspense, twists and turns, and evil going on in this book. The love of family knows no bounds. Will check out more by this author.
James Hankins has outdone himself with A Blood Thing. As someone who has voraciously consumed all of his books, I speak with authority in recommending this to anyone who loves a twisted thriller that keeps you guessing until the end.

Keeps You Guessing...
I read a lot and can usually see the ending, as well as how the author is going to get there, early in the book. A Blood Thing had me thinking most of the time, "There's no way to get out of this one!" I was as frustrated as the characters in their predicament. Even when I could see the solution coming together in the end, there was one more surprise plot twist waiting for me. What a ride!
I have read all of James Hankins books. I am equally amazed at the quality of his well ...more
