BOOK DESCRIPTION

This is a story about a city. As with all others, it’s a place of violence. There are murderers, and they live among us.

This is also a tale about a couple — sometimes friends, occasionally lovers, but always partners. Dan and Olivia are fighting modern battles; the ones parents have over a lack of money, time or peace.

An escalating serial killer terrifies the streets and homes. The body count rises as their relationship crumbles. Society reveals its dark side, and no one is safe. Dan and Olivia experience this first-hand as danger closes in.

Will Abel’s reign of terror ever end?

Who will live, and who will die?

HERE ARE MY THOUGHTS AND REVIEW

This is such a modern-day story, of modern-day life, where people have grown to expect violence every day but just hope it will happen to someone else and with their modern-day keep up with the Jones life style, they just haven’t got time to get involved. Except for one guy that is. Abel knew he was different, even as a boy and now it was time to leave his mark because enough was enough. The crime rate was about to rise a little more and fear in the city increase, as people would hear the warning of Abel to change their ways, or else…………
Just to prove a point the story that runs side by side with this new threat to society, is that of Dan and Olivia with their two point two children and dog, both working full-time, juggling school runs, randy bosses, weird delivery men, neighbours and not much time for each other. A typical modern couple. Yep it could be any town really, this just happens not to be mine, not yet, but we are only short of Abel.  Now I have to say here that Dan did my head in as he fell into the category of badly done to. Why do I have to take the kids to school? Why do I do to help round the house? sort of bloke! But the story does get across the stresses and strains of every day living and the quick fix remedies that become all too common long term major problems.
The chapters were short and snappy between the main characters and victims of Abel, with subtle humour that you don’t realise is coming up until your brain has been too slow to send the signal to laugh in your head. I just loved the pages that were brimming over with hormones and weirdos which are at times the same people! This is a brilliant creep up on you story that builds with each chapter. Very cleverly written, very funny and with characters that you feel like you already know in a random sort of way. I became so involved in Dan and Olivia’s lives that like the point of the story, the crimes taking place became secondary but I soon got a reminder! Yikes!
This is a stand alone novel so there is a conclusion to the story with all the ends tied up. A very all round super entertaining book. Brilliant!

HERE IS A LITTLE ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Ross Greenwood

Ross Greenwood was born in 1973 in Peterborough and lived there until he was 20, attending The King’s School in the city. He then began a rather nomadic existence, living and working all over the country and various parts of the world.

Ross found himself returning to Peterborough many times over the years, usually, so he says “when things had gone wrong.” It was on one of these occasions that he met his partner about 100 metres from his back door whilst walking a dog. Two children swiftly followed. And, according to Ross, he is “still a little stunned by the pace of it now.”

Lazy Blood book was started a long time ago but parenthood and then four years as a prison officer got in the way. Ironically it was the four a.m. feed which gave the author the opportunity to finish the book as unable to get back to sleep he completed it in the early morning hours.

Ross Greenwood’s second book, The Boy Inside, was picked up by Bloodhound Books, and in September 2017, Fifty Years of Fear was published. All his books are thought provoking, and told with a sense of humour.

Ross Greenwood hopes you enjoy reading them. Please feel free to get in touch on http://www.rossgreenwoodauthor.com
