This was a good book it was high octane from start to finish. The story kept me engaged it was also fast paced reading. Thomas Briggs was a one man wrecking crew.

Fortunes of Blood features a stirring action-packed crime thriller that's sure to grip you from the get-go. Brilliant writing, hilarious character dynamics and picturesque action scenes are what makes this stand out among books of the same genre.

Story-wise, I found it a bit predictable. It has the classic formula of a revenge-driven ex-FBI agent turned hired gun who falls in love with a sassy mafia heiress amidst the rescue mission. But it was written well that despite the cliché tropes ticking
