Review: A Measure of Blood by Kathleen George

A Measure of Blood
by Kathleen George

Publisher: Open Road 
Format: eARC 
Buy the Book: Amazon

Goodreads:  Nadal watches for weeks before he first approaches the boy. No matter what Maggie Brown says, he’s sure Matt is his son, and a boy should know his father. After their first confrontation, Maggie should have run. She should have hidden her child. But she underestimated the man who was once her lover. With self-righteous determination, Nadal goes to her house. He demands to spend time with the boy. When she refuses, he reaches for a knife.

By the time homicide detective Richard Christie arrives on the scene, all that remains of Maggie Brown is a bloodstain on the floor. The killer has vanished, and Matt is too scared to remember anything but his mother’s fear. As Christie looks for the killer and Maggie’s friends fight to keep Matt out of the hands of Child Services, Nadal watches the news and waits. A boy should be with his father. He’s going to get his son.

Kritters Thoughts:  A detective gets attached to a case where a little boy is left orphaned and witnesses the person who kills his mom.  He is determined to find the killer and make sure this child ends up in a great home.  

Although you know who the killer is from the beginning and are reading his every move, this book was still interesting as you had no clue when he would be entering the scene and creating havoc!  I read this book in two sittings, it kept me guessing from beginning to end!  As any who dun it does, this book took some fantastic turns and when to a place that I couldn't predict and loved it!  

Complete with a chase (can't give too much away), I loved the flow of this book and will definitely be keeping my eye out for the next one from this author.

Rating: definitely a good read, but can't read two in a row
