Originally Reviewed by Shannon Raab for Suspense Magazine

A hunt for payback--predator vs. prey--is the underlying electrical current coursing through this colorful debut thriller by Mark Sadler. The movement of the storyline, written so vividly, straddles the lines between dark thriller and in-your-face horror, as Sadler's descriptions spill out with shocking intensity.

Michael Renton was just a typical working Joe with a wife and two sons and while his life was not the pinnacle of excitement, he was proud of his accomplishments...their accomplishments as a family. A hard worker, he understands that being away from the wife and kids was a strain on the family unit, but it would have been much more difficult without the money from hours of overtime. Unfortunately, all that time away made it tricky to appreciate his wife's needs and desires for more. Much more than Michael, a simple man, could ever offer. Michael could never have prepared himself--even had he fully understood the true toll his schedule had taken--for the day he walked in on his wife and her lover. His American dream was over in an instant...within seconds of a shotgun blast.
Not for the faint of heart, Blood on his Hands can make your stomach roll as well as a roller coaster while Sadler zigzags you on a frenzied chase across the country
