Sound of Blood has many fresh ingredients as well. The author masterfully weaves in financial fraud ripped from the headlines of the past two years. Ballantrae's jack-of-all-trades assassins are a gay couple.

There is little room for a happy Hollywood ending as the plot moves with the inexorability of a tragedy toward its climax. The author savors some things too much. A key golf match between Scarne and Ballantrae skillfully captures the conflict between the two but runs a bit too long for the non-golf aficionado.

There are a few too many random characters running in and out of the plot. But none of this really slows the reader down. With compelling plot and characters and an authority in depicting worlds at once exotic and familiar, De Maria carries us along on a ride that is thrilling and even cathartic as Jake Scarne battles evil that is not found only in fiction. Sep 18, Dolly Sandor rated it really liked it Shelves: free.

Surprisingly better than I expected!! Sound of Blood was a free e-book and although the rating on Goodreads gave me pause, it was free, right? I've been trying to wean myself from picking up too many not so good freebies. I took a chance and for me, it paid off. I liked the star, Jake Scarne.

He's a little bit bad but has good intentions, most of the time.

De Maria connects them is some pretty fancy writing. Jake is a pretty tough, smart guy but he's not above getting into some pretty hairy situations. In other words, he's portrayed as pretty much human, with no super duper skills.

I really found myself liking some of the secondary characters very much. The pacing of Sound of Blood is good, the characters believable and the research or knowledge of the author on financial matters comes shining through. What I didn't like: While enjoying the story, they were several editing mistakes that annoyed me.

I say annoyed because they weren't on every other page but every time I came across a misspelling, it stopped my progress. Nothing major but it's there! A fan of suspense, then Sound of Blood is a decent read. Oct 03, Rick Maloy rated it really liked it. There's so much going on, in so many venues, I made sure to read Sound of Blood in large blocks so the threads wouldn't get lost. Scarne is a believable detective, fleshed out by genuine sounding cop-speak dialogue. De Maria also appears to have a deep awareness of police work and the political realities that sometimes affect outcomes.

Like a Columbo story, the reader learns facts at the outset that Scarne has to unearth. Unlike Columbo, however, the building suspense in Scarne's quest comes not There's so much going on, in so many venues, I made sure to read Sound of Blood in large blocks so the threads wouldn't get lost. Unlike Columbo, however, the building suspense in Scarne's quest comes not just from the progress of the investigation, but also from the increasing peril he confronts with each discovery.

Basing the book around a corrupt financial empire gives it a timely feel, and the author's creation of quirky hit men, employing unique methods of dispatching victims, also helped tie me to the story. I would have given Sound of Blood 5 stars, but the love interest felt like a stretch, and the text would have benefited from an editor's scalpel in a few spots.

Still, the pace rarely flags, and the tie-up of the details is very well done. A very satisfying read. Oct 10, Sharon Michael rated it liked it. Good, solid P. I personally found some of the murder scenes a little more graphic than I prefer and also a bit more noir than I like as well. Well developed main characters, some of the minor characters were a Good, solid P.

Well developed main characters, some of the minor characters were a bit sketchy and good action scenes. I did wonder about the 'big business' plotline as I find many of those to be more about following the paperwork than action. This was based on financial chicanery but it focused more on the people involved than the actual details of the issue.

Very readable, better than just okay but if there were several in the series, not something I would read consecutively. May 14, Rick rated it liked it Shelves: crime-thriller. This was a pretty decent book. The private detective ex-cop,ex-marine,ex-lawyer-all this and good-looking, too! Of course, the smart part completely goes away when he meets a girl any girl, apparently causes enough blood loss to the brain to turn him back into a hormone-driven teenaged boy, not just the lady criminal he is investigating but falls in love with.

May 29, Scott Collins rated it really liked it. Let's start off with some good stuff. I liked the book. It was exciting, the characters were well developed, the plot moved along at a great pace.

Some typos were scattered throughout the book, but not enough to discourage me. Now to the hard part. Sometimes I read a book where I like the story but don't like the protagonist. How should that affect my rating?

After the last book I read, I needed something a little more fun. I found this to be a fast-paced read dealing with corrupt international banking and money laundering schemes, the mob, murder sometimes in rather creative and disturbing ways , and yes, even a bit of sex. Jake Scarne, the protagonist, is a private investigator who reminded me somewhat of James Bond. His background has given him the skills to deal with all the predicaments he finds himself in. His close friends are a bit shady in After the last book I read, I needed something a little more fun.

His close friends are a bit shady in their personal dealings and they come in handy at certain points in the book. While Jake finds himself in a number of intense situations; there is an abundance dialog between characters that adds a great deal of humor to the book. Oct 12, Michael rated it liked it. Good story with a lot of action, but in need of a good editor.

I read the Kindle version of this story. The author has done a good job of putting the story together and the character development was well done. It is bothersome, however, to find so many typos in a story that should have been caught. Had it not been for the poor editing, this story would have been worthy of a four or five star rating. May 12, Tom Collins rated it liked it. Another over due review—I read the book months ago in and enjoyed it. Sound of Blood is graphic—a good private detective story. Jan 08, Fred rated it did not like it. While I liked the concept of the book and the humor, Jake Scarne is an idiot who gets everything he deserves.

He's a womanizer who tries to fall in love with a horrible woman. He uses the wrong head to make decisions and gets himself into too much irritating trouble. I much prefer De Maria's other character, Alton Rhode. He has many redeeming qualities and is much more likable. Aug 19, chelepissbcglobal. I enjoyed the majority of this book except for the long drawn out unnecessary descriptive sections.

The 18 hole golf game seemed to last forever. I was also hoping for a more exciting conclusion. Si prega di disattivare il tuo AdBlock se si desidera scaricare il file. Mirror Link.

OCT Innovative and strangely likable albeit with a bent for the macabre , the two assassins were just following orders when they eliminated a pesky reporter threatening corporate secrets.

Unfortunately for them -- and their billionaire boss -- the reporter had a secret of his own.
