“Drowning might be like going to sleep. It would be nice to sleep forever – leave everything behind in the waking world.” 

Detective Saoirse Reilly commits to finding a missing child before dying by suicide. While investigating the kidnapping of Delaney Bascom, she is snared in the supernatural underbelly of Boston, Massachusetts. She will have to face her demons if she hopes to bring the girl home. 

Reilly has the dubious support of Emrys Somerled, a forensic psychologist with a cellar full of secrets, and Domenico Alderisi, an impossibly youthful club owner with a bad habit. Meet these suspicious characters and more alongside Reilly as she begins to see the world for what it really is. 

The blood moon is coming. 

Will Reilly save the girl and find a reason to live?

My Review

Dead Blood City (Saoirse Reilly Series Book One) was a very well written book and a great start to what seems like an amazing series. I really liked Detective Saoirse Reilly as she was a character that I could not help, but feel for. I kept reading more and more and hoping that she would find a reason to live beyond saving the child.
