Présentation de l'éditeur

Exorcism or Murder? John Jordan investigates the death of a troubled young woman undergoing exorcism – a case he’s uniquely qualified to investigate. But is he dealing with forces not even he can understand? And what will it cost him?

Do you love mystery, suspense, thrillers, with some romance and a smart, unique, thoughtful detective? Then John Jordan is for you and you’ll love Michael Lister's Award-winning John Jordan Mystery series.

In the thrilling BLOOD SACRIFICE . . .

Following a particularly brutal and costly case, John Jordan goes to a secluded retreat center and encounters one of the most bewildering and haunting cases of his career—the suspicious death of a young woman undergoing an exorcism.

”Michael Lister may be the author of the most unique series running in mystery fiction. It crackles with tension and authenticity”, Michael Connelly.

˃˃˃ Blood Sacrifice is an exciting entry into one of the most unique series in contemporary crime fiction.

Michael Koryta says, "If you like crime writing with depth, suspense, and sterling prose, you should be reading Michael Lister."

Lister writes lyrical, evocative prose, reminiscent of Cormac McCarthy - Panama City News Herald.

Q&A with author Michael Lister.

How did chaplaincy work help you write fiction?

John Jordan and the “Blood” series wouldn’t exist had I not been a prison chaplain.

I wanted to write clerical detective mysteries from the moment I first happened upon a 1990 Avenel edition of Father Brown Crime Stories in a dusty old bookstore in Atlanta the year I graduated from seminary school and was ordained.

But as inspiring and influential as I found Father Brown and the ecclesiastical sleuths that followed him, particularly those penned by Andrew Greeley, I was far more influenced by hard-boiled writers like Robert B. Parker, James Lee Burke, Raymond Chandler, Dashiell Hammett, Michael Connelly, Graham Greene, Dennis Lehane, Ernest Hemingway, Walter Mosley, and Cormac McCarthy, and I knew that my clerical detective would be different. I would introduce a strong, tough, troubled clerical detective into the world of the hard-boiled detective novel. And that’s where prison chaplaincy came in.

HASH(0x89b0eb64) étoiles sur 5 The best "John Jordan" yet. 8 février 2013

I have read all the books in Michael Lister's " John Jordan " series and each time I read one I think that they can't get any better but, THEY DO. "Blood Sacrifice" the latest in the series proves this. The best so far, I couldn't put it down. This book was gripping from beginning to end. Its twists and turns have you wondering who the killer is till the end.........and maybe even longer.

Lots of plot twists. More questions than answers but that is what a good novel does. Worth reading. Sad at times.

The story has several plot twists, it is not predictable. The location descriptions are vivid---but that may be because I live in the area of the setting of the novel.

HASH(0x8a9445a0) étoiles sur 5 great investigative tale 16 octobre 2012
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
After several bloody cases (see The Body and the Blood, Flesh and Blood, Power in the Blood and Blood of the Lamb) and the destruction of his marriage, prison chaplain John Jordan needs a breather. The former cop is staying at St. Ann's Abbey retreat center in Bridgeport, Florida Panhandle. He sees police lights nearby and goes to help Chief Steve Taylor, a former deputy to John's dad Potter County chief. As everyone waits for Taylor, John interferes with the body proving the victim who he knew as Tommy Boy was not a floater. Taylor lectures him and Jordon knows he erred. Sister Abigail who has been counseling Jordon lectures him too.

Someone brutally murders Gulf Coast Paper Company heiress Tammy Taylor who was undergoing an exorcism conducted by the retreat's Father Thomas Scott. Increasingly Father Thomas looks guilty of the savage murder in which he insists demons inside the victim killed her. Sister Abigail, believing he is innocent, asks John to investigate. John assumes earthly matters involving the Gulf Coast Paper Company's selling its property to developers is more likely the motive rather than demonic possession.

The latest John Jordon whodunit is a great investigative tale with several viable suspects including Father Thomas and Chief Taylor among others. The storyline focuses on the conflict between hard core religious beliefs in demonic possession and hard core economic credo in developing one of the last pristine natural Florida areas. Readers will appreciate Chaplin Jordan's inquiry as the hero wonders whether Tammy is a Blood Sacrifice to the Christian God or capitalist god.
