Bloodland by Alan Glynn

by Alan Glynn [Downloadable Audio Glynn]

Who would think that a job researching the life of Susie Monaghan, a starlet known more for her antics than her acting for her biography would lead to the downfall of an American presidential candidate? Jimmy Gilroy didn't think that this job would be anything but a way to pay the bills while he searched for work as a newspaper reporter in Dublin. Jimmy is perplexed about the helicopter crash that killed Susie and her fellow passengers. Things became weird as Jimmy probed further. If the wrong-doers had been more subtle Jimmy would have continued to focus on Susie and the criminals would have gotten away. Nevertheless, this is an engaging conspiracy theory thriller that takes the reader from Europe to the Congo to the U.S. -- recommended by Donna G. - Virtual Services Department [ See Donna's Reviewer Profile ]
