A Review of Innocent Blood

Posted by Scott Holstad on July 7, 2012

Innocent Blood : A NovelInnocent Blood : A Novel by Christopher Dickey

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I think this is an excellent novel, very well written, well told. Dickey easily takes us from Kurt’s Kansas upbringing to his times as a US Ranger to later visiting the former Yugoslavia, the land of his parents, to his essentially becoming a Muslim jihadist, and he makes it really believable. I don’t know how the author was able to get into the mind of an American terrorist like he did, but it’s entirely believable. The events leading up to the book’s climax would make one possibly feel the need for a “big bang” type finish, and I was prepared for a letdown, but Dickey pulled off a nice finish with aplomb. I was fascinated to note that this book was written before 9/11. It seems so fitting post-9/11. This is definitely a page turner. I’m glad I picked it up.
