For underworld enforcer Richard “Rico” Sanders, it seemed like an ordinary job. Retrieve his gangster boss’s priceless pigeon-blood red ruby necklace and teach the double-dealing cheat who stole it a lesson. A job like a hundred before it. But the chase quickly goes sideways and takes Rico from the mean streets of Chicago to sunny Honolulu, where the hardened hit man finds himself in uncharted territory when a couple of innocent bystanders are accidentally embroiled in the crime. As Rico pursues his new targets, the hunter and his prey develop an unlikely respect for one another and Rico is faced with a momentous decision: follow his orders to kill the couple whose courage and character have won his admiration, or refuse and endanger the life of the woman he loves?
Rating: 5 stars
Pigeon-Blood Red by Ed. E. Duncan is definitely for fans of The Bourne Series. The tale includes action, danger, and suspense. The intrigue of what will play out entices readers to dig further. Before I know it, the book will have come to an end. Engaging read with choices to make. The characters are well-developed. Their actions are what got them into their present situation. But the hired killer is stuck in a far more pressing matter…kill the couple or to have someone he truly loves killed.The unknown of future events and how the tale will end moves readers into a frenzy to read. I am excited that this is the first of a new trilogy by this talented writer. I can’t wait to read the next adventure. Overall, I highly recommend this read to everyone.
