[The fun] . . . is the author’s ramped-up style, which served him so well in his earlier and equally satisfying effort, Supposed to Die (2015). . . . this is a fine, wild ride. –Booklist Review, 11/15/2016
"The ghosts of Hammett and Chandler haunt this impressive novel."

Bad Blood


Welcome to paradise, a.k.a. Heron Point, a glamorous Florida beach community where money is the religion and excess the way of life. Newly arrived Brady Spain is oblivious to any hint of corruption beneath the glitter, seeing only a land of swaying palm trees, stunning sunsets and hot bodies glistening against the sand. Until paradise’s facade begins cracking under the weight of its own appetites, and the hidden jealousies that fester in a culture of runaway indulgence spawn murderous rage. And once the killing starts, the ensuing scramble to separate the alibis from the suspects shoves Brady onto a collision course with the personalities that really live behind the beautiful faces and dazzling lifestyle. Trapped in paradise amid the wreckage of his shattered dreams, Brady Spain is about to find out if he can be bought or broken.
