Blood Land:


Crime's an ugly constant in the big city. L.A. Chicago. New York. But when a savage murder brutalizes a small town and neighbor turns on neighbor, a tough-as-nails cop is essential to restoring order. Blood Land is a gritty, emotional saga set in the Wyoming badlands with both greed and vengeance at its core.

When billions of dollars in natural gas rights hang in the balance and the town's top law officer's wife is slain by her own blood, a reluctant hero is forced to battle his own demons and ultimately choose between justice, revenge, and duty.

In the tradition of Dennis Lehane, Tony Hillerman and James Lee Burke, Guthrie's sparse, haunting storytelling compliments his talent for creating richly-drawn, unflinching law officers with human frailties and a sense of justice.

Biographie de l'auteur

R.S. Guthrie grew up in Iowa and Wyoming. He has been writing fiction, essays, short stories, and lyrics since college. "Black Beast: A Clan of MacAulay Novel" marked Guthrie's first major release and it heralded the first in a series of Detective Bobby Macaulay (Bobby Mac) books. The second in the series (Lost) hit the Kindle shelves December of 2011. Guthrie's "Blood Land" is the first in the Sheriff James Pruett Mystery/Thriller series and represents a project that is close to his heart: it is set in a fictional town in the same county where he spent much of his childhood and still visits. Guthrie lives in Colorado with his wife, Amy, three young Australian Shepherds, and a Chihuahua who thinks she is a 40-pound Aussie! Readers can catch up with what's new with R.S. Guthrie at his official site, http://www.rsguthrie.com , or discussions related to writing at his blog, Rob on Writing (http://robonwriting.com).

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Remarkable 12 août 2012
Par Russell Blake - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
Blood Land is that rarest of beasts, a novel that works at a number of levels. The characters are richly drawn, the plot compelling, the atmosphere palpable, the writing remarkable for its depth and lucidity, as well as the maturity of the choices the author makes - the restraint and the plain old good taste. There is a marvelous economy to the prose and yet it has tremendous impact. I kept thinking as I read that this is how it should be done. As an author myself, I am hyper-critical of grammar and editing issues, and I'm happy to say Blood Land has none of the usual that afflict a regrettably large number of indie novels. I was asked today for some recommended reading by a fan, and I recommended Blood Land without hesitation. That pretty much says it all. Deserving of more than five stars, this is a remarkable book in an ocean of mediocrity. I sincerely hope it gets the attention it deserves. We should be hearing a lot more from Mr. Guthrie, who is an obvious talent with a prodigious gift.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 And what a steak dinner it was! 14 juillet 2012
Par Unique1 - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
First off, I'm not an author. Second I wasn't offered a new hat, or some beef jerky to rate this book. I even paid for it! I'm just Joe Schmoe who loves books and a good steak.

This is what I would rate as an excellent read, and I would like to say to the author what my father would tell me when I did well, "nice job son." The writer said this book is the culmination of many years of toiling behind a keyboard. Well worth every second Mr Guthrie. I'd almost go so far as to say, stop now. This book was so well written I'd be afraid to try and write anything as well as this, ever again. If you did stop*, I'd say you finished on top.

Did I mention I love to read? I've read so many books I can't even put a number to how many I've read. Many terrible, lots are good, some great, and a few excellent. This one hits the 5 Star Excellent category.

Why?

Plot so thick you can taste it, twists and turns galore! Most books I can figure out the plot within a few pages. Not this one. Kinda frustrated me at times because when I thought I had it figured out, WHAMMO! Side-step, left turn Clyde. Yeah, we're over here now, didn't see this one coming, did you???

I love that in a book. And the twists and turns took you to places you didn't expect.

Depth of characters. You know these people, they are your friends and neighbors. You love some, and wish others would just die... just wait!

Action in a book is a MUST have for me. Unless it's on cooking. Then it needs meat. But this book is almost non-stop action. Pistols, rifles, knives and bombs, "Plan B, there is always plan B!". Did I mention history lessons too? Native Americans, racism, bourbon, hot sex and inner demons that strive to win out in non-stop battles. So many of lifes lessons in one big book.

Do yourself a favor, pick up this book and read it. I finished it last night on my deck, with a thick slab of beef, roasted quickly over a very hot fire. A nice glass of Kentucky Bourbon, and some fresh salad. I ended my week with my two best friends. A book I hated to see end, and one hell of a steak dinner. Charlie Sheen knows nothing of winning.

I win.

Thank you Mr. Guthrie. *And please don't stop. This might be your best ever, (who am I kidding, it IS!) but I am hoping there are more where this one came from.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 a nugget here, a nugget there 27 octobre 2012
Par Bookbubba - Publié sur Amazon.com

This book started like an unedited cell phone video. Jerky and unfocused. As I read though, each page contained at least one nugget of fine writing that made me want to continue to read and I am very glad I did. As the book went on the disjointed threads became a gold mine of a story. James Pruett is the sheriff in a Wyoming town who is beset by spiritual, mental and physical adversaries. You wonder if he will succumb to all the pressure he feels. The author has created a fine array of supporting characters, some of which must battle their own demons. R.S. Guthrie is also able to make us feel the no-nonsense, code of honor of the westerner and understand the terse speech of the rancher types. This book has many twists and turns. Read it and pick up your own nuggets along the way to a very surprising conclusion!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Riveting and suspenseful 23 septembre 2013
Par Valerie Caraotta - Publié sur Amazon.com

It is commonly said that money is the root of all evil. Author R.S. Guthrie, in his book Bloodland will take you on a wild West Wind River episode in rural Wyoming where a shot fired and the death of Bethy Pruitt would bring out the demons of blame and an intense journey of investigation. Sheriff Pruitt, war veteran and much esteemed among his community, would survive the biggest battle of all which would be his own internal struggles and sense of convictions strongly held.

A land and Will dispute over millions of dollars and the untimely death of Sheriff Pruitt's wife Bethy set in motion the likely culprit. Discoveries however and motives from the most unlikely, as well as further murders will keep you questioning who the culprits are page after page. Guthrie takes you inside the dynamics of the McIntyre family as well as Pruitt's own trying relationships and through this will you gain the full emotional feel of how hatred, emptiness, greed, and guilt forge the plot. Discover how assuming judgement must be challenged and how often, what a man sows that too does he reap.

This is a brilliant masterpiece that will keep you spinning in many directions. It will sharpen your crime senses and reveal shocking discoveries in a town begging for answers, Author Guthrie had me there, far from home. Excellently written and I can't wait to read his other volume Money Land. If I could give it 6 stars I would.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Beautiful book 17 octobre 2012
Par bananas - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
I had no idea what to expect when I was perusing Blood Land page here on Amazon because it was tagged mostly as western, thriller, and mystery. I don't think I've read many western if at all. The word "western" only reminds me of Indians, and Clint Eastwood back in the days when he hadn't yet picked up the habit of talking to empty chairs. And frankly, I was skeptical - I wasn't in love with the cover (yes, I know, judging a book by its cover and all that. Judge me if you will). But Blood Land had been recommended to me by somebody who threatened me that my brain cells would melt and bad incidents involving clowns would happen to me if I didn't read it. I was confident my vicious dogs could easily take down the clowns, chew them up and spit them out, but the thought of losing all or any of the three cells in my brain terrified me. And so it was that I was introduced to the wonderful words of Mr. Guthrie.

And how masterfully woven those words are! If I have to choose one word to describe the book, it would be "beautiful." I wonder why nobody tagged it as literary fiction? A great storyteller can make an average story good, and a good story great. Mr. Guthrie started with a great story and made it colossal - intriguing plots and characters, yes, but what sucked me in was how beautifully it was told without any pretensions or arrogance, and how masterfully the plots are arranged. Oh I loved the way the big revelation about the sheriff was made. That was so good, it about killed me. And let's not forget about my new favorite expression, scrotum-head.

I'm so glad I read this book because not only I get to keep my three brain cells, for now, but also because I've discovered another favorite book which is now included in my must-read-again-and-again-and-again list.
