Blood Stories

By Douglas Light

Violence, love, and a torrent of blood. A man wakes in a grimy hotel to find his marriage has ended, but not in divorce. An orphan discovers he has a sister, and a grisly family secret. And the loss of an infant son drives a man back to his brutal, bad ways. From the Manhattan’s Lower East Side to the west coast of Africa, the seven noir stories in this riveting collection cut to the core of what makes us human—and what makes us a killer.
