A terrific, exciting romantic thriller
The Mexico Tourist Board has been advertising recently with the slogan, "Mexico, it's not what you thought." Well, the Mexico in M.C. Walker's Blood Son is what I thought. I loved the book, though I don't think it will please the Tourist Board.
Still, in the end, Walker shows that Mexico is as well-rounded as her characters, who come alive on these pages. They may not be perfect people, but they're real people.
The story is well-rounded, too, though that gives me a problem trying to describe its genre. Is it a romance with thriller elements? A thriller with romantic elements? Or a nicely balanced romantic thriller? I strongly suggest you read this page-turner and decide for yourself.
