Blood Line is a high-voltage spy thriller that redefines rogue—the Granger Spy Novel series introduces a loving family with lethal issues caught in the crosshairs of global arms dealers.

When a simple home invasion turns out to be not so simple, Ron Granger must put aside his quiet rural life and return to the Central Intelligence Agency.

Aided by his brilliant wife, Valerie, and resourceful teen daughter, Leecy, Ron must quickly decide who to believe among the calculating opportunists, shrewd criminals, and power-hungry rival agencies racing to possess the technology that will change modern warfare forever. But when Leecy is kidnapped, Ron and Val must choose between the mission and a rescue. With time quickly running out, Ron only knows one thing:

When you can’t trust anyone else, trust your family.

From Publishers Weekly

Oct 27, 2014 – Davis's inferior thriller will leave readers scratching their heads. When intruders break into the Park City, Ga., home of Ron and Valerie Granger and hold their 16-year-old daughter, Leecy, at gunpoint, the Grangers show off their self-defense chops from their prior lives as intelligence operatives: Ron for the CIA, Valerie for the Mossad. While the parents rescue their child with ease, the repercussions of the invasion force them to flee for their lives and to reveal to Leecy the secrets of their past. Leecy's reaction to these startling developments is unnaturally muted ("Okay, so my parents are ex spies. I can get behind that"), but that's consistent with the lack of any psychological depth for any of the characters. Meanwhile, the town's leaders support the local police chief after he hires a gay officer because they think the resulting controversy will be a boon to tourism. Other plot elements are just as illogical. (BookLife)

Blood Line by John J. Davis

Fantastic! Incredible read. I was able to get an advanced copy, and I can’t wait for the next installment.

Blood Line

This is real fast read. I wish the author had gone into more detail about the characters. I hope if he continues with this series, he will develop the characters more and create a more complex plot. I am looking forward to reading more from this author.

Happy spies

Interesting concept, lots of references to the latest technologies, some historical references, and some late news-breaking references made for a good "spy" story.
