His son is dead. His wife is gone. Dana Hartman just wanted to go home.
His life shattered after the horrific loss of his only son, he staggers back into a home town he's avoided for over twenty years.
His brother, the sheriff, is shot dead in the street not long after and now the sheriff's right-hand man wants Dana in on the investigation.
Dana isn't a detective. He's not even a cop.
He helped the Chicago PD solve one case.
Now all he wants is to live out the rest of his life in peace, with a grieving nine-year-old niece he hadn't bargained for.
But why are there so many dead bodies in Tazewell County? Why does everything seem to lead to the pillars of the community? And why is everyone trying to warn him off the case?
New Blood is the first of the Dana Hartman series of thrillers. If you read John Sandford, Karin Slaughter and Lee Child, you'll love Shane Lusher's new book.
"A fast moving plot that often heads in unexpected directions- you'll want to set aside time for this read!"
"Shane Lusher's Dana Hartman, the protagonist of "New Blood", is a complex, multilayered, realistic character…Suspenseful, well-paced, with a memorable cast of characters. You'll look forward to the next chapter of Dana Hartman's life as much as I am."
