Private investigator Angelina Bonaparte can barely contain her excitement. Thrilled to reunite with her homicide detective boyfriend after a mandated separation of two years, seven months and fourteen days, she’s preparing every detail for his return. But she’s forced to put passion on the back burner when she discovers a local artist brutally slain.
When the victim’s last will and testament shockingly predicts his death, the seasoned sleuth ignores her lover’s warnings and digs into the artist's treacherous links with the Russian mob. But with the culprit still on the loose and the evidence not matching up, Angie's life could be snuffed out by the ultimate criminal mastermind.
Is Angie's romantic reunion in danger of being fatally cut short?
Blood Kills is the spine-tingling fourth tale in the Angelina Bonaparte Mysteries thriller series. If you like riveting twists, blossoming love affairs, and pulse-pounding close calls, then you’ll adore Nanci Rathbun’s high-octane story.
I am a lifelong reader of mysteries – historical, contemporary, futuristic, paranormal, hard-boiled, cozy … you can find them all on my bookshelves and in my e-readers. I bring logic and planning to my writing from my first career as an IT project manager, and attention to characters and dialog from my second career as a Congregationalist minister. (My books are not Christian fiction, but they contain no explicit violence or sexual scenes, nor bad language beyond an occasional mild curse word.)
I grew up an Army brat, and have lived in Germany, France and Korea, as well as several states in the U.S. After my dad retired from the service, our family settled in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. I raised my daughter and son there, while working at AT&T. I never expected to move after taking early retirement, but when my second grandchild was on the way, I wanted to be closer. One of my greatest joys is hearing my three granddaughters shout ‘Nana’ and run to me when I come in their front door in Fort Collins, Colorado.
My Maltipoo, Teeny, and I now live in Wellington, Colorado USA. No matter where I make my home, I will always be a Green Bay Packers fan.
