Blood in the Bayou

Blood in the Bayou Summary

On her first assignment since her promotion to SSA status in the Serial Crimes Unit of the FBI, Jade Monroe and her new partner, Lorenzo DeLeon, are tasked to southern Louisiana, where disturbing discoveries have been made. Human bones have been found in numerous sites deep in bayou country, and the locals aren't too excited about having outsiders poking around in their business.

When Jade has a chance meeting with a local hunter, she finds his assistance exactly what she needs to break through that unwelcoming barrier. She brings him on board as their go-between.
The hunter inserts himself into their investigation and gains Jade's trust, but is he authentic, or does he have his own agenda?

A bone-chilling blindside and a dangerous chase through the Louisiana swamps is just the beginning, but the question remains—is Jade the hunter, or is she the one being hunted?

Blood in the Bayou5 star

A really great read, I couldn’t put it down. I can’t wait to read the next CM Sutter edge of your seat thriller.55


Disappointed3 star

I enjoyed the hunt in the story but was disappointed that you made the FBI and police act so stupid. No way would they arbitrarily share pertinent information about a case with a layman35

Blood in the bayou2 star

Was too frustrating to read. To be fair I didn’t finish the book. It was like watching a horror movie where the person takes the serial killer home. Jade was too stupid to live. Quit when she had Billy sign on to consult for the FBI. Could not do any more. My time is worth more. As an analyst she was terrible.25
