Very short with juvenile writing. Siuations not well thought out...for instance...characters had sat down to breakfast, waitress said order when ready, characters talk, suddenly waitress brings meal. Things like that happen throughout story that make the story sound like a 7th grader wrote it. It wanders off on tangents that dragged on and on. Would not recommend.

    190 pages, did not care for.

    This 190 page free ebook revolved around family greed and sibling murder. The author used very convoluted sentences and uncommon words. While much better then the cursing some writers are injecting into their stories lately, it did become tedious. The editing was very well done. Mystery is my favorite genre, but this book did not interest me. The callousness of one of the characters at the end was disturbing. I noticed many readers really enjoyed this book, all I can recommend is for you to try it. Perhaps you will enjoy it also. Because of violence and subject matter, for readers 18 and up.

    Great story, characters are very human

    Well written story you won't soon forget. Yes, you could nitpick about food coming without a word about it being ordered but that does not take away from the tale. Characters are human with flaws we/I can relate to. Have already bought the next one.

    You May Read This Story Once But You'll Remember It Forever: The

    You May Read This Story Once But You'll Remember It Forever: The writing talent of R. S. Guthrie explodes in Blood Land. Sheriff Pruett watched as the lifeblood of his wife drained into the Wyoming dirt; her brother charged with the murder. R. S. Guthrie leads us through a maze of family betrayal, government corruption and inner demons. Each turn of the page brings a new twist and will leave you guessing what is going to happen next. I would never be able to tell you one thing I liked most about the book, I loved it all. From jaw-dropping action to sweet and tender scenes, from the descriptive beauty of the land to the ugliness of a person’s greed. The ending brings it all home and gives you the answers you were not expecting. Only R. S. Guthrie could pull this off.
