Editorial Reviews

Review

"There are not sufficient adjectives in the English language to effectively describe this book! It was mind-blowing, to say the very least! The main character, Bill, was awesome! I was rooting for him all the way! The book is amazingly written, it felt like I was right there alongside Bill, shooting and "bustin' a cap in those thugs' asses"
  "Mind-blowing!!!" (Sonja Myburgh, author of A Bullet For You)

"Afghanistan war veteran Bill Conlin is trying to stay straight and out of trouble. What follows is a nail-biting slalom through the streets of New York, as Bill tries to dodge the unwanted attention of Mexican and Russian gangs, as well as keeping on the right side of Sullivan and out of the clutches of the law. However, along the way there is a trail of destruction and collateral damage. A good read."
   "An atmospheric tale of violence and greed" (Charles R Stubbs, author of Web of Deceit)

"Bill Conlin has only one real skill - a special forces skill for weapons, combat, survival. From the poverty tracks to the 24/7 murky money-making machines of drugs, slavery, prostitution, organized crime and moral ambiguity. This is neo-noir, totally compulsive, one man who may seem like he his taking on the world but is, in the final analysis, taking on himself."
  "Ambiguous Compulsive Noir" (Chloe Thurlow, author of Sophie's Secret)

"This book shows a very interesting look at what happened to a great deal of the veterans who are coming home from that war. They are shunned, stepped on and made to feel less than human. Immerse yourself in this tale and see the mental destruction that takes place from within."
  "Bourbon and Blood" (James M. Copeland, author of Bottom Bones)

From the Author

Non-stop Adrenaline Ride!!! 

'Bourbon & Blood' is a modern &gritty story of war hero who is thrust into New York City's brutal world of organized crime. It's really hitting home readers hard as it takes the veryreal setting of a drug underworld and encapsulates a character few wouldassociate with it - namely a war hero.

This story is timely, plausible and shockingly vivid. The visceral andsometimes terrifying downward spiral of an under-appreciated United StatesMilitary hero will entertain most hard-boiled crime fans. While Bill Conlinsurvived the risks and rigors of serving in Afghanistan, can he find his wayout of New York City's dark drug underworld with his life and dignity intact?

All Conlin wants is a normal life, but his life spirals out of control as hetries to find good in a brutal city. This is a very real reality for manyreturning from war. Therefore, the book isn't as far-fetched as it may firstappear.


'Bourbon &Blood' proves that, while it may appear to be a million miles away from a warzone, home soil is often far from safe.
