BLOOD CONTEST: A STORY OF POWER, SEX, AND MURDER
JERSEY MURDER SERIES -- BOOK 1
AN EXCITING MURDER-MYSTERY THRILLER.
MURDER WAS JUST THE BEGINNING.
The son of New Jersey's governor is murdered in front of his children on Christmas Day. Ryan and Mueller are named the lead investigators of this brutal crime. It should be their dream assignment, but it soon becomes their worst nightmare.
Even though the governor has pledged his support, a baffling, hidden conspiracy obstructs their investigation at every stage. The detectives' commander pushes them into a direction that seems wrong. Leaks to the media are sabotaging their case. And the murderer is now targeting the governor himself.
When they pursue their investigation to the dark side of New York's after-hours clubs, Ryan has a sensual encounter that reveals to him his own dark side. A web of intrigue entangles the detectives at every turn, until a seemingly unrelated case produces a startling clue. The clue lays bare the destructive secret surrounding the murder and imperils the very lives of the detectives.
Five story lines converge in the thrilling climax of this twisted story of power, sex, and murder.
