James P. Sumner
In Thicker Than Blood, James P. Sumner captivates readers for the final time in the seventh book in the Adrian Hell series. Adrian Hell is, obviously, the star of the show and his prowess as a trained assassin is in high demand. His life has been spared, but at what cost? When he’s assigned to kill his best friend, he realizes it’s time to do the right thing, which puts his life and the life of his best friend, Josh, at far greater risk than ever before. The supposed mythical club of the world’s top assassins actually exists and Adrian needs help from the United States government, including the president, if he’s to have any hope of winning the war against the clubs murderous rampage and fanatical corrpution. The shocking truth that Adrian eventually reveals takes him down a road he never expected to travel.
Written in present tense and in first person from Adrian’s perspective, Sumner’s superior skills as a writer shine through in Thicker Than Blood. The story is action-packed and will keep readers on their toes and wrapped-up with anxious nerves as Adrian and his best buddy go after the world’s top killers. Thicker Than Blood is exceptionally well-written, and even though it is the final book in a series of seven, it works as a stand alone novel. Mind you, the details, apparently from previous books in the series, dropped in by Sumner, will make readers want to go back and read the entire series. James P. Sumner’s thrilling tale of high ranking goverment officials and the world’s best assassins having a connection to another surprising world power will keep readers turning pages and sharing Thicker Than Blood with their friends. Highly recommended.
