Editorial Reviews

Review

"Remarkable...Deserving of more than five stars. A hypnotic storyteller and a gifted writer with a flair for intoxicating, gripping prose."
Russell Blake, bestselling author of JET and Silver Justice.

"A starkly beautiful tale of greed and redemption."
Frederick Lee Brooke
, bestselling author of Max Vinyl and Zombie Candy.

"R.S. Guthrie has produced a stunning work!"
Alan McDermott
, bestselling author of Gray Justice and Gray Redemption.

===================================================

Blood Land has a courtroom battle at the center of it, but also a family feud involving ranchersand the all-powerful BLM (Bureau of Land Management). It's a little like Grisham's A Time to Kill meeting Elmore Leonard:explosive, understated, elegiac.

A highlight of this book is thescintillating dialogue. Pruett describing the man who has been jailedfor murder and has pleaded guilty as well: "And for all his ranting andsurliness, Ty is a rough package but I'd say he's not too far past halfbad." All the way through, people talk to each other in this rough-hewnpoetic cadence, like William Faulkner.

Blood Land is a fastone-day read, but deserves to be consumed slowly and appreciated. Withthis book R.S. Guthrie has penned a starkly beautiful tale of greed,revenge and redemption.

About the Author

"Black Beast: A Clan of MacAulay Novel" marked Guthrie's first major releaseand it heralded the first in a series of Detective Bobby Macaulay (Bobby Mac) books. The second in the series (Lost) hit the Kindle shelvesDecember of 2011.

Guthrie's "Blood Land" is the first in the Sheriff James Pruett Mystery/Thriller series and represents a projectthat is close to his heart: it is set in a fictional town in the samecounty where he spent much of his childhood and still visits.

Guthrie lives in Colorado with his wife, Amy, three young Australian Shepherds, and a Chihuahua who thinks she is a 40-pound Aussie!
