Man Made Murder (Blood Road Trilogy Book 1) - by Z. Rider - Well written horror

4 of 5 Stars     Review copy

Z. Rider grew up in New Hampshire watching Creature Double Feature every Saturday afternoon on Channel 56. She now lives in the mountains of northeast Tennessee with her husband, two dogs, and a skeleton named Knuckles.

Her new book, Man Made Murder, starts with a compelling synopsis of the story...

When police can't track down the man Carl Delacroix believes murdered his sister, Carl takes matters into his own hands. After a two year search, he finds himself broke, desperate, and--finally--hot on the trail of the man who killed Sophie.  But the road is dark and full of monsters, and the one he's chasing has a deadly bite.

Rock band, Man Made Murder, wants nothing more than to get out of their deal with High Class records, but instead, they find their new single climbing the charts as they prepare to head out on the road again, beginning with a show in NYC.

Author, Z. Rider, deftly weaves the band's story with that of Carl Delacroix's search for his sister's killer, into a compelling story which reveals its secrets slowly.  Man Made Murder is well-written and believable, despite the subject matter.  Rider has a writing style that's visual and tight, with spurts of pulse-pounding action and presents a twist that keeps the story going just when you think you've got it all figured out.

Because Man Made Murder is the first book in a trilogy, there are numerous loose ends and a bit of a cliff-hanger to leave the reader wanting more.

From Dark Ride Publishing Man Made Murder is available now in Hardback, Paperback and e-book formats.  If you subscribe to Kindle Unlimited, you can read this title at no additional charge, or if you are an Amazon Prime member you can read it for FREE as your monthly selection from the Kindle Owners Lending Library.
