Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Bestseller Kane's disappointing sequel to Twisted (2008) pays more attention to the romantic growing pains between FBI agent Sloane Burbank and her hunky former FBI colleague, Derek Parker, than the crime at hand. Dragon Head, boss of a Chinese triad, is targeting Sloane's father, Matthew, and his circle of friends in a years-old revenge plot that hinges on a stolen painting. Derek and his task force are already on the Dragon Head's scent for stateside crimes when Sloane's parents' Manhattan apartment is burglarized. Matthew privately hires Sloane to protect him while keeping the past hidden from the Feds and Derek. Despite a few incidents early on, the heart-racing action is relegated to Sloane and Derek's bedroom—and when the two aren't amorously engaged, they're arguing about who's hiding what from whom. They're not hiding anything from the reader, though: Kane tells us too much up front, and little is left for the big reveal. (Sept.)

From the Back Cover

Former FBI Special Agent Sloane Burbank has seen her share of danger. She's faced down a serial killer and survived life-threatening injuries . . . but she never expected that danger to invade the lives of her family. . . .

Then her mother is viciously attacked in the posh Manhattan apartment her parents share and it quickly becomes clear that this is no ordinary robbery. The thieves were too clever, too knowledgeable, and so obviously after something of her father's. But what could a respected art dealer have done to merit such violence? When a mysterious message is left for him, Sloane knows her father's in over his head. Determined to find out the truth, Sloane discovers a deadly secret buried in his past that has made him the target of a power-hungry mobster with a lethal agenda and nothing to lose.

Sloane is desperate to save her father, but to do so she must hold on to secrets of her own—especially from FBI Special Agent Derek Parker, the man she has grown to love deeply. She knows she must tell him everything, but how can she betray her father's confidence? Can a couple who's faced so much survive this ultimate test of trust? Will they survive at all?

As the decades-old secret claims the lives of her father's oldest friends and the killer closes in on him, Sloane finds herself in foreign territory: alone, facing escalating personal danger, and hunting a moving target in a world where memories are long and loyalties are drawn in blood.

The continuing love story between Derek and Sloane was great.

I sincerely think, of the books of Andrea Kane's that I have read, which I believe were her last three...this was by far the best..

Format: Hardcover
For this reader top thriller writers don't waste any time - they rope you in and tie you up with the opening pages. Andrea Kane (Twisted) does this so well with DRAWN IN BLOOD you're hooked by page 2.

Rosalyn Burbank is a mid fifties matron who lives with her retired art dealer husband, Matthew, in an apartment on New York's Upper East Side. She likes to leave work and arrive home before her husband to have a bit of time to unwind before he arrives. One evening she was surprised to find their door unlocked, and called to Matthew, "It's me. You forgot to close the door behind you again. No the smartest idea. One day, someone's going to... She never finished her sentence.

Mathews later arrives home to find his wife brutally beaten, gagged and tied, and their apartment ransacked. She didn't see her attackers, only knows that they spoke in a Chinese dialect. Matthew knows more about that than he has told her. But he is compelled to tell his daughter, FBI Special Agent Sloane, when he realizes that his entire family is in jeopardy.

Sloane has recently resumed her relationship with fellow agent Derek Parker. (Repeated consummations of their passion for each other are both wild and frequent). In fact, they've moved in together and have vowed to let nothing separate them again. However, Sloane has promised her father that she will tell Derek nothing about his confidence to her, yet she well knows she needs Derek's help.

Seems the threats to Matthew and several of his longtime friends are coming from Dragon Head, a malevolent Chinese crime boss. It's payback time for an almost 15 year old supposed offense. In parallel goings on museums across the world are being looted - their treasures stolen and dead guards left behind.

Kane interlaces all of these activities nicely with special emphasis on the FBI's Art Crime Team. If you like your crime spiced with coupling, Drawn In Blood is for you.

Format: Hardcover
Former FBI Special Agent Sloane Burbank's hand is healing well. She is determined to get well enough to rejoin the Bureau. For now she consults for the Bureau on a case-by-case basis and she has retained all her old contacts. As to her private life, Sloane feels ready to take the next step in her relationship with her former colleague Derek Parker. They are finally going to live together. But then Sloane receives a frantic call from her father, Matthew.

Matthew Burbank and his partners witnessed a crime (murder) thirteen years ago while overseas on business. Now Matthew has come face-to-face with the killer while in Chinatown. Even worse, he gets home to find the place trashed and his wife harmed. He tells Sloane everything but makes her promise not to tell Derek. This is hard for Sloane. Keeping her father's secret means she must withhold vital information that would help Derek (who is part of the Asian Criminal Enterprise Task Force) on their Red Dragon case. This case will either make their relationship stronger or tear it completely apart.

**** FOUR STARS! Even though this continues with the main characters from Twisted, you do not have to read anything before opening this title if you do not wish. Each title's plot is stand-alone, but the main characters and their relationship is an ongoing theme. This means that as the series progresses (and yes, I believe more are forthcoming) those who read each title will enjoy the stories much more.

There is much more going on than I can tell without spoilers, which I refuse to ever give out and ruin surprises. Suffice it to say that there are several characters on the good side, as well as the bad side. Andrea Kane has a talent for making fictional characters so realistic, I could almost swear they were real people. ****

I'm normally an avid Andrea Kane reader. Anything she writes I try to grab up. This book fell short though. I guess for one, I thought Sloan (the main character) was somewhat annoying. She seems almost too self-centered and I can honestly say that if there's another book in this series with her, I won't read it. Granted the book itself is fairly good but not up to Andrea Kane's normal writing. This is a can live with it, can live without type of read. Nothing special but it's not a bad bet either if you just want something to chew up time reading.

Just finished Drawn in Blood. It was SOOOOOOO GOOD!!

There is so much I loved about it..I wish there was some support group I could converse with about all the little details. As before, I am amazed at Andrea's ability to write dialog that flows so well. I feel like I'm listening to the characters rather than reading.

When she was describing Xiao Long's imagining killing his victims (pg 227)..I was thinking.."wow..I'm afraid right now."

Or when Ben and Wallace had their confrontation and eventually mutual forgiveness (pg 304-5), I literally had tears in my eyes.

The story was so tight, the pacing was fantastic. My heart was racing as the story was accelerating towards its finish.

Then there's Sloane and Derek.....I am totally and completely happy and satisfied...I love happy endings.

I sincerely think, of the books of Andrea Kane's that I have read, which I believe were her last three...this was by far the best..I loved them all. Great job!
