Advance Praise for "American Blood"
"This novel has it all--great characters that are all too-real, switch-blade sharp writing, dialogue that would bring a smile to Elmore Leonard's face and a plot that grabs a reader by the collar, squeezes hard and never lets go. "American Blood "is a first-rate, first-class, top-tier thriller and Ben Sanders hits it far and deep. This is one book that flat-out demands to be read. Just sit back and enjoy the ride.
