Nick Hunter used to be a contract killer. Shadows from his past step forward to shatter his short-lived peace and destroy his family. His wife is dead, his four-year old son kidnapped and it looks like someone is trying to frame him for murder. Under pressure, broken, is there anything Nick wouldn't do to rescue his son? Blood is Heavier, part one of a trilogy, is an action thriller, a fast-paced, edge-of-your-seat read that will keep you turning the pages to the very end. * (non-spoiler excerpt) “Daddy?” Cameron’s shaky, frightened voice came through. Nick felt almost sick with relief at hearing him again. “Cameron, it’s me, Daddy.” “Daddy,” Cameron’s voice rose a little. “Come and get me, Daddy.” “I will. I will, son. I promise. I won’t be long now.” “When?” “Soon. As soon as I can. I’m on my way right now.” Cam let out a heartbreaking sob. “Listen,” Nick urged his son. “Cam?” “Yes…” Cameron whimpered. “I’m gonna come and get you. And then we’ll go on a nice trip, just you and me. We’ll go somewhere nice and warm. We’ll go swimming with turtles and dolphins and Nemo fish, all right? You like Nemo fish, don’t you?” “Yes.” “All right, son. Now, you be good and make sure you tell me if anybody hurts you, ok? I want to know that. Then I can have a nice little word with the bully before you and me go away to see Nemo, ok?” “And Mummy…” Cameron demanded, his voice ringing strong and clear this time. Nick felt his chest constrict at the mention of his dead wife. How could he tell his son mummy couldn’t come? That she will never cuddle him again? But not now. Not here. There would be time enough for that later. Time to grieve, time to think, time for retribution. * BLOOD IS POWER, book two in the series, is also out now, available in paperback, as well as all ebook formats.
