Blessed Are The Dead Review! By Kristi Belcamino


To catch a killer, one reporter must risk it all …

San Francisco Bay Area newspaper reporter Gabriella Giovanni spends her days on the crime beat, flitting in and out of other people's nightmares, yet walking away unscathed. When a little girl disappears on the way to the school bus stop, her quest for justice and a front-page story leads her to a convicted kidnapper, Jack Dean Johnson, who reels her in with promises to reveal his exploits as a serial killer. But Gabriella's passion for her job quickly spirals into obsession when she begins to suspect the kidnapper may have ties to her own dark past: her sister's murder.

Risking her life, her job, and everything she holds dear, Gabriella embarks on a quest to find answers and stop a deranged murderer before he strikes again.
Darra's Review:
This book was fantastic. I usually don't get to read many real mystery books. So this was a breath of fresh air.
The plot was fantastic. The characters were original. I will not lie, I was stressed till the end. Which must explain why I loved the book. It is thought provoking. This is a book that will stick with you. I have memory loss and most books are the same story, different name. Blessed are the Dead will not be one of those.
And the book left me hanging. I have to wait for the next book?! I can't wait!
Enjoy it as much as I did!
I rate the book a 4.6. Muy Bueno!
