I've put aside my last book for a day or so to catch up with BLOOD MEN for a Murder & Mayhem bookclub discussion.  Which is no trial.

Paul Cleave is one of my very favourite authors.  Goodness knows why because he seems to go out of his way to frighten me witless.  The last 2 of his books I read had me leaving the lights on all night.  I started this one last night and was awake half the night because I simply couldn't put it down. 

From the Blurb:

Edward Hunter is a family man with a beautiful wife and daughter, a great job, a bright future and a very dark past.

Opening Lines:

I first made the newspapers when I was nine years old.  I made them in every city across the country, most of them on the front page.

Year of Publication

Edward Hunter is a family man with a beautiful wife and daughter, a great job, a bright future, and a very dark past.

Edward's father is a man of blood. He's been in jail for twenty years and he's never coming out. Edward has struggled his entire life to put that all behind him, but it's hard when everybody knows you're the son of a serial killer. Then, a week out from Christmas, Eddie's world is turned upside-down. Suddenly he's going to need the help of his father, a man he hasn't seen since he was a boy.

Is Edward destined to be just like his father, to become a man of blood?
