This review is from: Bloodroot (Hardcover)
I've been a fan of Bill Loehfelm since he won the Amazon Breakthrough Novel Awards with his freshman effort "Fresh Kills." While "Fresh Kills" was stuck somewhere between a literary psychological analysis, and a dark mystery, "Bloodroot" makes no mistake about what it wants to be. From the word go, it's a full on thriller of a ride. There are times when the prose is so good, you find yourself not caring what the story is about. I didn't want the book to end. For me, the true test of a book is the "put down" factor. Can I put this book down and go to bed? The answer, for "Bloodroot," was no. I stayed up all night reading. If "Bloodroot" is the direction of Bill's career, I hope he has many, many more books to come.
