The blurb

Ten years ago, August Greystone’s adolescent brother was brutally murdered and dumped in Blood Pond. And the one person he is sure can identify the killer is on the run…

Bruce Monkton can’t escape the horror of what he experienced the night his friend, Tommy Greystone, was slaughtered in front of his eyes. Although Bruce somehow survived the vicious attack, he is still fleeing from shadows, from the haunting memories and his own demons, so the last thing he wants is to come face-to-face with his greatest nightmare—the older brother of his dead boyhood crush, the man desperately seeking closure to his brother’s murder.

August has given up everything, including his career as a law enforcement officer, to locate Bruce because he’s sure the young man is the key to helping him find what he seeks. But can Bruce really aid August when it comes to locating the elusive killer, or will the answers to the mystery be buried forever at the bottom of Blood Pond?

 

Our thoughts

OMG this was a good story. Hats off to D.L. Manly!  Blood Pond was a wonderful little murder mystery with a nice amount of smexy!

August is a former police detective trying to find out who killed his younger brother, Bruce is a man trying to forget and escape his past.  August knows that Bruce his the key to finding his brother’s killer but that requires Bruce to face the past he has been trying to escape.  The unsolved murder of a loved one is bad enough but the one person you need to help you solve it comes across and mentally and criminally insane and holy smokes…you think you love him!  The twist and turns in this story keep you guessing until the very end.

It’s not a very long story, page wise, but there is a lot of story packed into each page.  I don’t think anything was left out of this story…there were some parts that I didn’t feel were relevant at the time but did round the story out nicely.  The story is told from both MC’s POV; which didn’t get confusing.  And yes the end had you going what the heck…bottom line if you are looking for crazy check your family tree first :-).  This story gave me goose bumps!
