The Last Drop of Blood by Graham Masterson #BlogTour #BookReview @GrahamMasterton @HoZ_Books

I am delighted to share my review on Blog Tour with you today for The Last Drop of Blood by Graham Masterton

The final thriller in the million-copy-selling Katie Maguire series.

In the driver’s seat of a Jaguar, on a country road, a good man burns.

Justice Garrett Quinn should have been at a sentencing. He was one of the good ones, fighting for order in a lawless world. In a burned-out car, on the outskirts of Cork, DS Katie Maguire finds what’s left of him.

But this is only the beginning. The judge’s death sparks a gang war fought with bullets and bombs, and civilians are caught in the crossfire. As the city spirals deeper into violence, Ireland’s most fearless detective must find the courage to fight for her hometown one last time.

Katie Maguire is no stranger to sacrifice – but she has lost so much already. Facing new horrors each day, Katie must decide: can she do her duty when she has nothing left to give?

Praise for Graham Masterton:

‘One of this country’s most exciting crime novelists. If you have not read one, read them all now’ Daily Mail.
‘A tough and gritty thriller with an attractive principal character’ Irish Independent.
‘Graham Masterton is a natural storyteller’ New York Journal of Books.
‘Any fan of mysteries should grab this book’ Irish Examiner.

My Thoughts

The Last Drop of Blood is book eleven in the series and also the final one. I am happy to report that it can be read has a standalone for those of you that haven’t followed the series. But this is a series that you dont want to miss!

The author sets the scene right from the word go with an OMG opening then we follow a story that will have you hooked until the very end. I am a fan of grit lit and this story follows a case that is woven into the underworld. Love Love Love it!

We read some rather uncomfortable scenes that will keep you on the edge of your seat. This book isn’t for the faint hearted. Graham is an author of horror so this is show throughout the story with graphic descriptions. Which for me makes it good reading for me.

The Last Drop of Blood is an addictive pulse racing read which I highly recommend. I am just gutted this is the last book in the series. I am looking forward to seeing what Graham comes up with next.

Thank you to Victoria at Head of Zeus for a copy and for the blog tour invite.
