My past is gruesome and unforgettable no matter how hard I try to let go.
Writing is my escape. My only therapy.
When I met my wife, had children, and my career sky-rocketed, I thought I’d never revisit those dark days again.
So, the moment Blue Hill, Maine beckons for me, I go willingly in an effort to write the next big story.
But when a ghost from my past shows up, all of my carefully rebuilt walls come crumbling down hard and fast. My only way of defense is ripped from my grasp as this distraction bounces into my life.
Will I be able to sift through what’s fiction to find reality?
I’m a serial killer. A victim of narcissism and the need to satisfy my own urges. I have a thirst to snuff out the lives of those that remind me of her—the woman that ruined me—and I take great pleasure in quenching that thirst.
I have no rules. No parameters. I do as I please.
New York Times and USA Today bestselling author, Henry McElroy, is my god. His sick, twisted mind constructs the world to which I rule. I would be nothing without him—my dark creator.
What happens when Henry McElroy’s story begins to take a realistic form the moment he sets foot in the sleepy, seaside town in Maine? As soon as he begins sharing excerpts of his book with his fans on social media, including an obsessive one he meets in Blue Hill, bodies begin to stack up in similar fashion to that of which he writes about. Will the blame be placed on the town’s newest and most twisted visitor? Or will Henry be able to prove his innocence and clear his name before it’s too late?
Here is a teaser excerpt of BLUE HILL BLOOD by Elizabeth Gray
Blue Hill Road is a dark, demented, and twisted psychological thriller, that will have you questioning your own sanity. At least it did me, because this was not an easy book to read. It was gruesome at times, and crossed the line from “reality to fiction” causing my mind to question what was real and what wasn’t. Just as I thought I knew what was going on, the book would take a left turn and we would be on a new, bumpy road.
The writing was evocative, captivating and sucked me in. It was no-holds-bar. Don’t go into Blue Hill Road expecting hearts, flowers and unicorns, because you will be sorely disappointed. But for me, that is what I LOVED about it. It was different, it was unique. It was brutal at times, but unbelievably, beneath the harshness lays a love story, all-be-it a sick one.
This is not a romance, it is a thriller with a whole lot of steam and dare I say, heart? My heart broke for our main character. That prologue gutted me. And as I continued to read I felt so much emotion for him. I hated him, cared about him, loved him, I felt the gamut of emotions. A true sign of spectacular writing.
I can’t tell you what the book is about without spoiling it, going in blind is absolutely the best way to experience this book. The blurb is enough.
There were quite a few characters in this book, but the one I loved the most (besides the main character) was grandma! She was amazing. What a brilliant character. There were a few others that I wanted to slap – LEESA, WTF?!?
Blue Hill Blood certainly isn’t a book to skip if you like thrillers. From the solid plot to the character development this book is a standout! 5 amazing stars!
