In this fast-paced new thriller, Blood Line, international enemies want a lovable family with a heroic past, dead, right now!

"Blood Line" by John J. Davis is a debut thriller, a fast-paced thriller/action novel, an espionage thriller. If you are a fan of spy novels, espionage, and or suspense thrillers, you are in for a treat!
But this book is more than just a straightforward spy story, it's also a story about the strength of family ties, and the lengths we go to protect them.

This is no ordinary family. Ron and his wife Valerie Granger were former CIA operatives, but even though they have been retired from the CIA since 2003, they have both retained their instincts and skills. International enemies want a family dead, and their daughter, Leecy, knows nothing about he parent's past as professional spies.

A simple home invasion, sets the wheels in motion for Ron and Valerie Granger and their sixteen year old daughter, Leecy. A sudden explosion of breaking glass, the failed alarm system, someone in the hallway with a high-powered flashlight, the two intruders hidden behind a black ski mask, with a gun aimed at Ron's chest...There was a struggle and one intruder was incapacitated , and the other one with Leecy was shot and killed by Valerie. But who are these guys...and what did they
want? Now the family was forced to be on the run, while they figured out what was going on.

Valerie used their time on the run to explain to Leecy, about her prior job and missions. They had both been spies, but that she had been an assassin, which explained her skill in shooting. Ron expertise lay in the form of hand-to-hand combat and tactical manoeuvers.

The advancement of technology since 2003, forced Ron Granger to learn and update his skills, to stay abreast of the situation.

The "Grangers" are not the normal every day family that they appear to be. Two people break into their home setting into motion some serious mysteries and danger. It puts them on the run, knowing that they have few people to trust as they try to figure out what is going on. All three are in danger until they can figure out where the danger is coming from and putting a stop to it if they can.

Action starts right from the get go, and the story was written in such a way that it drew me in right away. It caused me to care about the people and care about what the problems were. I absolutely loved this book and couldn't and wouldn't put it down. Twists and turns everywhere you turned. It was done in such a way that was easy to follow though. Bravo to the author.
If I sound pumped; its because I just finished reading it and I am still feeling the effects of being on quite the ride. This book finishes with no cliffhangers but I was glad to see that it left an opening to possibly more adventures. If you like adventure, a loving family with secrets pulling together, a smart group of people fighting evil, this book is for you!
I received this ARC eBook FREE in exchange for an honest review. I hope they send more of this my way.

As I began this book, I thought I was reading a first-grade Dick and Jane first reader. The story itself is silly, at least from the standpoint of the approach taken by the author to present it. The dialog is juvenile, and that's being kind. The over-the-top-precocious sixteen-year-old protagonist is completely unbelievable. And what is the CIA doing so openly involved in activities within the U.S.? I read about 80% of the book but the self-inflicted torture was just too much and I couldn't finish it. So this review may have missed something -- a situation I strongly doubt. The 4 and 5 star reviews have ot be the author's children and friends. I don't know hoe anyone who possesses anything that passes for an intellect could have gone into the book even as far as I did. Very disappointed.

Format: Paperback
Former CIA operative Ron Granger and his wife Valerie are awakened in the middle of the night by a couple of intruders. As Ron handles the one who enters their bedroom, Valerie hears their daughter Leecy scream, and rushes to her rescue. The incident ends with one intruder subdued, beaten senseless by Ron, and the other dead, shot between the eyes by Valerie.
One would think that in Park City, Georgia, considering Georgia’s Castle Law that allows the use of deadly force to protect one’s home, and the fact that the Grangers are friends with the soon-to-be police chief, that would be the end of it. It, unfortunately, is not, as the Grangers learn that a secretive government organization was planning to kidnap their daughter, and now wants to snatch the whole family. That won’t be easy, because not only is Ron a dangerous and deadly agent, but so is Valerie.
For a thrill-a-page read, I think you’d have to search far and wide to find a book that surpasses Blood Line by John S. Davis. I received a free review copy, and once I started reading, I was as hooked as a big mouth bass on a June bug lure. Davis writes in terse, action-packed prose, without a wasted word. Acton scenes are credible, detailed, and awesome, and characters are described in full color and are fully formed. The dialogue is pithy and appropriate to the genre. Stand back Ludlum, you’ve got competition.
