Start A Standout Thriller Series That Will Leave You Wanting More!

What ties a federally sponsored cover-up to a satanic double murder? The man at the center of both events – Alex Hollick

In a thriller series like nothing else in its genre, THE BLOODBATH RITUAL begins the perilous journey of an FBI agent recruited to investigate satanic ritual abuse. Suspense Thriller, Murder Mystery and Romance seamlessly come together in a story that chronicles the complicated life of Alex Hollick. The 1980’s sets the backdrop for this all-original pulse-pounding thriller!

Alex Hollick is a clean-cut robbery division agent in Los Angeles, paying his dues, putting in his time, but his steady climb up the FBI ladder is about to take a major detour. Half of his team is killed in an unauthorized sting operation. The situation worsens when Hollick learns of the internal corruption that helped shape the deadly event.

At the order of his trusted mentor, John Novak, Hollick travels to Virginia, unknowingly as a suspect. A CIA torture team lies in wait, planning to kidnap Hollick and squeeze the truth out of him. After a torturous, drug-induced series of mind games, Hollick is released to Jordan Clay; head of a clandestine group burrowed deep within the FBI. His orders are simple - Bury the truth about the SOCAL robberies…

But things become more complicated from the moment the cover-up begins. Blood spills in all directions as Hollick and Novak attempt to hide the truth. Arson leads to a cop killing in the Mojave Desert. An ambitious Internal Affairs Agent is on to the corruption and two-million dollars in missing robbery money sits in the lap of a beautiful, but troubled young widow.

As the danger escalates, Hollick concocts a seemingly perfect plan to protect the woman of his dreams, Agent Jennifer Fletcher.

Lousy editing - grammar awful. Could not finish - I cringe thinking of the love scene; could it have been more badly written? AWFUL? D from C

This was a weird book but somehow interesting at the same time. It was disturbing to think that the FBI is that ruthless in its dealings with members but not surprising if it is true. I liked the book but not enough to give it more stars and most likely will not read any of the other books in the series unless they are free.

Though it is well written, I will not be reading more about Alex Hollick's adventures. The noir atmosphere, the use of lying as a relational basis and the sarcastic cheer leading for America made me uncomfortable.
