For two hundred years the Blood Contract has protected the sanctity of the Blood Lands on the border of the town of Thorne. But now, with more economic development in the works, the town aldermen have decided to violate the terms of the contract, and the Bloods, living and dead, aren’t happy.
The Blood Contract Trilogy by Ron Ripley is a chilling tale of what happens when greed overcomes prudence and the ghosts of the Bloods decide a lesson—a deadly lesson—must be taught. New Hampshire state trooper Jim Petrov, with the help of a living Blood, and the ghosts of past Bloods, must face a deadly enemy in order to save the town of Thorne from its own greed and stupidity.
A compelling cast of characters; even the ghosts have interesting personalities, and the tension starts on a high note and climbs into the stratosphere.
This is an unusual ghost story in which it’s hard sometimes to tell the good guys from the bad, but one that you will thoroughly enjoy reading.
I received a free copy of The Blood Contract in exchange for my unbiased review. I give it four stars.
