Review of Bleeding Shame by Nora Black
Posted by Beauty's Punishment
This is a very interesting story that involves a lot of themes. There is a murder of a “call girl” who is also a biochemist working on a cure for cancer. Her murderer is then found dead and everything doesn’t add up for Detective Frankie Harlow. He is even more convinced when first his partner is murdered then his family comes under attack. This book is suspenseful with enough twists and turns to keep you guessing to the end.The characters are well written and suffer the same conflicts as you and I . I really like Frankie, he is very human, and I hope to see more of him in more books. I give this book a 4 fang review and look forward to more from this author.
Has a world altering invention become temptation for murder?
A vicious killer, an improbable story, and a shattering scientific discovery, mingle to create a cocktail of deceptive intrigue.
A bright young woman’s death has been framed to look like an act of rage during a call-girl rendezvous. A tired, disillusioned cop, her only hope of redemption. Layer upon layer unfold to reveal a conniving conspiracy of global proportions; a conjuring of convoluted wicked twists.
Stacey Cornish has been murdered, and her killer has done very little to hide his identity. When his body washes up on the bank of a local river, Detective Frankie Harlow is unconvinced that the man committed suicide. However, when his family come under-fire in a series of vicious attacks aimed at dissuading further interest, Frankie knows that there is more to the murder than first meets the eye. Stacey was a biochemist working on a cure for cancer, perhaps her death had something to do with her research rather than the frame-of-facts posed by the killers.
Bleeding Shame is a compelling story that will grab you at the start, pull you along at a breathtaking pace, and shock you senseless with the questions it poses, and the answers it finds. Heart-wrenching, scary and sometimes humorous, it never fails to impress.
