Overview

In Ben Sanders's American Blood, a former undercover cop now in witness protection finds himself pulled into the search for a missing woman; film rights sold to Warner Bros with Bradley Cooper attached to star and produce.

After a botched undercover operation, ex-NYPD officer Marshall Grade is living in witness protection in Santa Fe, New Mexico. Marshall's instructions are to keep a low profile: the mob wants him dead, and a contract killer known as the Dallas Man has been hired to track him down. Racked with guilt over wrongs committed during his undercover work, and seeking atonement, Marshall investigates the disappearance of a local woman named Alyce Ray.

Members of a drug ring seem to hold clues to Ray's whereabouts, but hunting traffickers is no quiet task. Word of Marshall's efforts spreads, and soon the worst elements of his former life, including the Dallas Man, are coming for him.

Written by a rising New Zealand star who has been described as "first rate," this American debut drops a Jack Reacher-like hero into the landscape of No Country for Old Men.

New Zealander Sanders (The Fallen) makes his U.S. debut with an underwhelming crime novel featuring a former NYPD detective living as Marshall Grade under Witness Protection in Albuquerque, N.Mex. Marshall once worked Brooklyn narcotics, until he got in too deep with a nasty crime bossand his lethally attractive daughterand blew his cover. Now Marshall glides by under the radar, leaving no paper trail. His WITSEC handler, the genial Texas-born marshal Lucas Cohen, doesnt worry about his charges indiscretions, like subletting his home to stay off the books. But when Marshall antagonizes two known felons, Cyrus Bolt and Troy Rojas, he stirs up a hornets nest, all because a young woman, Alyce Ray, is missing, and she reminds him of someone he used to know. Readers will struggle to understand Marshalls motives as he cuts a bloody swath across the city and the surrounding area in his pursuit of Bolt and Rojas and their gang of violent thugs. Sanders can write an action-packed scene, but his characters are thin. (Nov.)
