There are many miracles in life still happening, perhaps not daily but fairly often enough so as to not elicit too much comment. Take the patient who is terminally ill, whether from cancer or some other debilitating disease, and where an inexplicable reverse of that illness takes place. The patient recovers fully. A little miracle ( or quite a big one, when this happened to you. Some comment and speculation follows, perhaps a medical dissertation,and but for that, no major fuzz or even blaring newspaper headlines to follow. Inexplicable...yes. Rare? Perhaps. A miracle? Probably yes. That is one of the premises in this fiendishly clever thriller. And that is but the first layer in the plot! The other layers? No, that will be spoiling some very good, even cinematic surprises. You may even find upon finishing this thriller a sudden preference to go sleeping at night with the lights on. But two things you will probably not do: 1. Stop reading. 2. Forget this novel a day or two from having finished reading it. So, enjoy!

2018 READERS’ FAVORITE Honorable Mention Book Award Winner



“I applaud Gates for the well thought out premise, plot, and the way he made his vampires unique, deftly using the classic theme to make the series stand out from other bloodsucker stories. The writing style complements the swift pacing, and there are plenty of action filled and suspenseful moments. Solid characterization gives the characters enough depth and believable traits… in essence Bloodline is gripping, fun, and kept me intrigued from start to finish.”

Amy Bree’s reckless actions result in death and her dismissal from the FBI.

A visit from a mysterious priest propels her back into the fray, as she is partnered with an ex-spy, with fearsome computer skills, and tasked to hunt down the serial killer known as the Blood Sucker.

Their quarry is not what they expect.

The body count rises… and the hunters become the hunted!

“A gripping action book, fast-paced and addictive. You’re going to have a problem putting it down. Remember to breathe.”

“The characters are excellent, the plot is completely unfamiliar therefore filled with thrilling surprise after surprise”

“…once I started I couldn’t put it down… one of the best books I have read…”

“Confident, tough as nails and action packed!”
