Karen Kostlivy Reviews "Blood Over Badge" by Wayne Farquhar

Book Blurb: From the Publisher: Two seemingly unrelated crimes - Two seemingly unrelated killers - And two mysteries waiting to be solved ... The murder of the Mayor of San Francisco's daughter sets the stage for this intriguing and spell-binding crime thriller. Two police detectives, Jack Paige and Casey Ford are assigned to catch a cold-blooded rapist and killer. In this gritty, realistic tale of homicide, unrelated mysteries of two murderers seem to come together and make little sense. What does a man rotting away behind the stench-enclosed walls of Angola Penitentiary have to do with an evil and cruel rapist and killer now on the run from California to Texas? What is the relationship to the killing of the Mayor's daughter?

My Review: Blood Over Badge is a fantastic murder mystery! I had a hard time of putting the book down. Wayne truly engages the reader into the story with his descriptive style of writing that places the reader into the center of it all. The twisted ending is more evidence that Blood Over Badge will no doubt be on the best sellers list.

"Kostlivy did a great job with her first book in the Cyber Writer Series. I found myself anxious to find out what happened next, and I can't wait to read the next book in the series. I was amazed with the plot and she kept my attention from beginning to end.  I give Cyber Writers and The Zebra of Life ***** (5) Stars" Daniel Dietz, children's book reviewer for BK Walker Books.
