“Bloodborne is classic Gregg Luke — sinister motives, gripping suspense, and intricate detail. His pacing will leave you breathless.” — Josi Kilpack, author of the Sadie Hoffmiller Culinary Mystery series
One ordinary afternoon, research specialist Dr. Erin Cross steps into a local deli to get some lunch and nearly takes a bullet instead. Thanks to timely intervention from a former Marine, she walks away from the seemingly freak incident. But when she returns to find her lab under security lockdown and her apartment ransacked, she realizes the attack was anything but random. Erin can’t make sense of the threat, given her low profile after a disastrous H1N1 vaccine trial. She doesn’t know that her former colleague has used the virus to develop a potent bio-weapon or that her recent research holds a key to his success. And she doesn’t know that his collaborators want her dead before she blows the whistle.
Fleeing for safety with her research in hand, Erin unravels the threats with help from the timely Marine, former Special Ops agent Sean Flannery. But the closer they come to finding answers, the more questionable Sean’s behavior becomes. His erratic moods and suspicious communications are more fitting for an enemy than a friend. And as the crisis comes to a head, Erin can’t be sure who harbors more secrets — the bio-terrorists pursuing her or the one man who can give her protection.
“Bloodborne is a spellbinding, action-packed story with dynamic characters and an intriguing plot. Block out some time to read, because you won't be able to put this one down.” — Erin Klingler, author of Between the Lines

Bloodborne by Gregg Luke
Bloodborne is a top-notch medical techno thriller. I had a hard time putting it down, was reading it while having my infusions in the hospital this month.
Dr. Erin Cross, research specialist, is having lunch at a local deli when a gunman comes in and shoots and kills a few people, including himself, but Sean Flannery, a former Marine, saves her from being killed. When Erin keeps receiving threatening texts on her cell phone, she seeks help from Sean when she gets help from a Wal-Mart employee by barracading herself in a dressing room.
When they find themselves hidden in Sean's remote cabin, they still feel unsafe and are told to fly to a secluded island in Hawaii by an unknown organization who seems ready to protect her. The sinister person wanting her dead isall-powserful and will stop at nothing to prevent Erin's research from going public.
With Sean's help, they can outwit the enemy and keep thousands of people from dying.
One main reason I enjoyed this book was because Gregg went away from the usual stereotype heroine with the perfect figure. Erin is chunky and that is great. Thanks Gregg. By the way, mosquitoes do not like my blood, as I'm Diabetic.!!!! lol
I received my review copy from Gregg.

Another FANTASTIC book by Gregg Luke!! He's now one of my very favorite authors. I love his style of writing. He brings the characters to life with their different dialects...the pigeon English that the Hawaiians speak in this book is great. You can almost hear it! He's also a master of suspense, unravelling the story as you go. But most of all I love how action-packed his books are! They keep me on the edge of my seat, and make it hard to take a break. Bloodborne is one of his best! Action and excitement from the very first page. I highly recommend it!
