Overview

Detective Connie Giannelli's life has been torn apart several times. First when her mother died and then years later when she found out her Uncle Dominic was in the mob. Her life is about to be shredded again, and this time it could destroy her.

Connie's love of family and her badge are both threatened when an undercover drug bust leaves two cops dead and the drugs missing. Internal Affairs is looking for any excuse to take her badge, but she's not worried about them finding the missing drugs-her secrets could prove to be far worse.

Now Connie's racing against the clock to figure out who killed her partners and took the drugs-dirty cops or Uncle Dominic's friends. And she has to do it before IA pins the whole damn thing on her.

Mandy's Review: I don't know if I've mentioned it before, but I'll mention it now ... Mr. Giammatteo has become one of my must-read suspense authors. He has a gift of taking three or four seemingly unrelated events and bringing them together to form a suspense novel that will keep you turning the pages. Being the first book in a new series, A Bullet for Carlos starts this series off with a bang. Full of New York attitude and Texas arrogance, this novel has it all. Connie was raised around mobsters, but became a good cop. Tip uses sexual innuendos to keep good women at bay. Dominic, Connie's "uncle," feels that nothing is as important as family and will do anything to help her ... even if she hates him for it. Carlos is a drug lord with a hatred for anyone who gets in his way. At first I wondered about all the different stories being started in this novel and how they would tie together, but the author quickly began relating them together while still keeping some of the mystery. I highly recommend all you suspense-lovers out there to give this indie author a try. He is truly worth the time and deserves a spot on one of your over-flowing bookshelves.

I am always a bit skeptical and anxious when reading a second novel by an author who's debut novel blew me away like I was with Murder Takes Time.  Is the second book going to as good or better or was the first book a "one hit wonder"?  Can this male author pull off writing a novel with a female first person narrative? I only had to read a few pages to get my answers.  Yes and Yes! A Bullet For Carlos, the first book in the Blood Flows South Series, introduces us to Connie Giannelli, a gutsy "clean" cop who has some familial ties to the "mob".  Trying to clear her name, with a drug bust gone wrong, finds herself in another situation in trying to solve a cold case that involves a serial killer. Within the first few pages, the story grabs hold of the reader and never lets go, including the ending, since this is the first book in the series.  I am anxiously awaiting the next installment.  The chapters alternate between characters with mini cliff hangers, which means it's a "one more chapter read", and then realizing one has read many chapters.  The action is non stop!  There are a several subplots, which the author masterfully interweaves and pulls together in a climaxing manner.  Heart pounding suspense!!   There are quite a few characters, but I feel all are needed, to make the story realistic, along with some of the strong language and graphic violence. Giacomo Giammatteo, has once again, proven that he is a gifted and accomplished story teller and author, unsurpassed!!  Put him on your radar, I believe, he is headed to the top of the Best Sellers' charts!!!!
