Blog Tour: Bleeding Shame by Nora Black

Sci-Fi / Thriller
Date Published: 9/13/2013

 Has a world altering invention become temptation for murder?
 A vicious killer, an improbable story, and a shattering scientific discovery, mingle to create a cocktail of deceptive intrigue. 

A bright young woman's death has been framed to look like an act of rage during a call-girl rendezvous. A tired, disillusioned cop, her only hope of redemption. Layer upon layer unfold to reveal a conniving conspiracy of global proportions; a conjuring of convoluted wicked twists.
Stacey Cornish has been murdered, and her killer has done very little to hide his identity. When his body washes up on the bank of a local river, Detective Frankie Harlow is unconvinced that the man committed suicide.  However, when his family come under-fire in a series of vicious attacks aimed at dissuading further interest, Frankie knows that there is more to the murder than first meets the eye. Stacey was a biochemist working on a cure for cancer, perhaps her death had something to do with her research rather than the frame-of-facts posed by the killers.
Bleeding Shame is a compelling story that will grab you at the start, pull you along at a breathtaking pace, and shock you senseless with the questions it poses, and the answers it finds. Heart-wrenching, scary and sometimes humorous, it never fails to impress.

I'm always up for a good mystery. Sometimes its nice to be able to get into a book and feel like you are a part of solving a crime. That is what this one felt like to me. The characters jumped off the pages and the circumstances just felt so real. 

This is one of those stories that will start off with a bang and not let up until the very last page. It really keeps on a great pace throughout. 

I enjoyed that it was based in South Africa, while I don't know much about the country, Nora Black did a great job of providing details and imagery to make it seem like I was there.
