Blood Noir

Blood Noir

book by Jesse Fox

reviewed by Mykola (Mick) Dementiuk

A very nice edge-of-your-seat thriller with crossdressers, over-eager cops, psycho killers and two gay lovers…or are they?

Alex is a photographer who takes off for Seattle leaving behind his gay lover Harley in St. Louis who discovers something isn’t right. Strange incidents begin to happen, accidentally severed car breaks, people snooping about, and a mysterious woman following Alex onto the plane bound for Seattle. But by then the reader’s suspicions are raised and heightened.

And it’s a very nice, suspenseful novel at that. Starts off in a lazy almost lyrical way but soon you have a serial killer on the loose and what a killer he is…or is that a she? The reader will have to solve this puzzle but with the pace the narrative is kept up you have little time to slow down.

And it gets more complicated as the novel progresses, with police men, FBI agents, literary book representatives but the novel is well written with Jesse Fox doing a commendable job in successfully bringing it all together.

I like complicated novels that have you thinking on your feet but this novel is very satisfying, whipping out new facts as you so hungrily turn page after page.

I highly commend the author. Great going, Jesse, Blood Noir is a definite winner! I enjoyed it.

275 pages-$5.99
