“"Blood of Eden" by Ken Policard is a tale of the faithful and the fallen, blending the lives of several people that - either, by fate or by providence - come together to track a serial killer that has been at large for 33 years. The case leads the protagonist, FBI Agent Mas, on a blind trail, lacking of clues and with a butchery of victims that began in the city of New Orleans and ultimately transitions to the nation of Haiti.
Policard delivers a fine and descriptive, well-weaved plot with twists that make the reader gasp. Knit tightly are historical accounts, legends and myths that ornately provide the platform for the ongoing storyline. The personages are well developed, carrying their own voice and personality in tune and in accord to their roles throughout the novel.
Mystery, culture, religion and carnage are the elements that bind the reader to this story, leaving him or her agape in the thought that two of the book's primordial characters may well be walking among us.
Whether you are an enthusiast of thrills and mystery or simply a fan of great literature, you will be sure to find yourselves listing "Blood of Eden" as a personal favorite and anxiously awaiting the second installment in this brilliant trilogy.
“"BLOOD OF EDEN" BY KEN POLICARD
I have just finished reading one of the most interesting, exciting, and amazing books I have ever read. I sit here completely breathless, having finished it and a little upset that it's over. Even knowing Ken Policard plans sequels I don't believe they can come fast enough! I simply cannot wait until the next installment in the trilogy. I am breathless with anticipation. I found myself going back over some of the chapters, like an addict looking for more, perhaps just one morsel that I've missed.
The characters in this novel are so real and richly developed they pull you right into their lives and compel you to feel the sense of doom they are facing along with the hope that things will turn out right in the end. As controversial as the subject may be for some you'll find yourself unable to stop reading.
You will be constantly amazed at the struggle between good and evil and surprised at who you can and can't trust. You will find yourself angry at the fact that some lose the fight ultimately paying with their lives and the very ones you'd like to see go down get away without any repercussions. This story will leave you so full of emotion you'll want to scream just to release it.
The most exciting part is the finale', finding out that some of the characters aren't who they seem to be. That along with the sense of elation you feel with the rush of believing again, and regaining some modicum of faith is astounding. I cannot think of a book I've read so far more deserving of movie production. I highly recommend this book, and its sequels it's one you will not soon forget.
