Why did I write this Crime Novel?
I've always been a crime fiction and suspense thriller addict. When I was young my parents took me to see Ian Fleming's Goldfinger and I was hooked. In the 70s movies like: The Getaway, The Seven-Ups and The Godfather were a driving force in my entertainment choices.Over the last ten years I've become a noir mystery and crime fiction vortex, consuming everything I could read, watch and play. It's inspired me to create my own Crime Fiction series. My first novel 'Bourbon & Blood' is the beginning of a series of fast-paced action adventure novels with a touch of romance.I have a strong social media platform and successful book review blog, where I introduce readers to the best authors in mystery, suspense and thriller categories.
Give 'Bourbon & Blood' a try and get a page-turning real taste of New York City's crime underworld with Bill and Dana. I can only hope that you enjoy reading 'Bourbon & Blood' as much as I did writing it.
Best regards, Garrard Hayes
Why Read Bourbon & Blood?
Kindle readers who have enjoyed bestselling authors; Lee Childs, Dennis Lehane, Adrian Mckinty and James Lee Burke will love the gritty fast reading style of 'Bourbon & Blood'. In the tradition of action-packed noir thrillers, comes a crime fiction story about an otherwise good guy "bent" bad when he's pulled into the underbelly of the New York City crime scene.
Drugs, sex trafficking and murder... Former soldier and decorated war hero Bill Conlin finds himself immersed in it all when he can't find "respectable" work after his tour in Afghanistan. When his cousin, Jimmy, first tries to talk him into joining Irish mafia boss Frank Sullivan's gang, Bill brushes him off. When he is forced into an interview there's no escape. See what happens next.
All Bill really wants is a normal life with a nice girl, and he's pretty sure the waitress he just met, Dana, is the one. But with his savings running low, and desperate to get out of his Hell's Kitchen near-tenement apartment building, Bill, against his better judgment, agrees to a meeting with Mr. Sullivan--and immediately hits the point of no return... Now with a brand new Lincoln and fancy new uptown digs (complete with a live-in girl whose only purpose is to serve him, and a wardrobe packed with weapons), Bill's tasked to take down a Harlem-based Mexican prostitution ring.
One thing leads to another, however, and the deeper he gets, the more he learns, and the more tangled up he becomes in a lifestyle he never wanted. But how long until he takes matters into his own hands.

Bill Conlin has just left the military after a tour in Afghanistan. He spends time with his cousin Jimmy and trying to figure out what to do with his life next. Jimmy keeps encouraging Bill to talk to his boss. Bill isn't sure that's what he wants. Eventually, he does meet with Mr. Sullivan and begins to work for him. About this time, Bill also met Dana. She was sassy and beautiful. He knew he wanted her in his life forever. It seemed however, working for Mr. Sullivan took more of Bill's time than he imagined it would. Before long, Bill finds out nothing is as it seems. He needs to be on his guard at all times. This is a war of a different kind. When you begin this book, it has the feel of an old black and white movie. Each page pulls you in deeper and deeper. You'll feel as though you are there witnessing it in person. My breath was taken away by the writing of this book. Everything just flows so well. The characters are terrific. I found it impossible to put this book down. I was rooting for Bill and Dana throughout. This is one book you will read again and again. I found no issues with this one. I gave this one 5 cheers out of 5 because it is wonderful. It's graphic but wonderful. ~Copy of book provided by author in exchange for a fair review~
