Publisher's Summary

A crowded restaurant in Washington, D.C. A powerful Congressman is lunching with a wealthy contributor who suddenly rises and shoots the Congressman dead in front of a hundred witnesses. Quietly, he resumes his seat, placing the gun on the table as he awaits the authorities. Thus begins 10 days of terror, 10 days in which the nation teeters on the brink of anarchy. Inadvertently drawn into this murderous conspiracy is Paul Castle, a once-promising newspaper reporter, now the host of a third-rate cable show that deals in sleaze and scandal.

Castle suddenly finds himself a pawn in a series of bizarre murders that have gripped the nation in fear. Secretly aided by an avuncular New York homicide detective and hounded by an ambitious FBI agent, Castle seeks to get to the bottom of the mystery and in the process, regain his lost self-respect. With the future of the country at stake, he knows he cannot afford to fail.

    "the psychological aspects were supreme"

    Some random peoples start killing democrat Congressmen, the police force and the FBI can’t find who is responsible for the killing, and it’s all up to Paul Castle who work as a host of a third rate cable show that deals in sleaze and scandal, the killing motivate Paul with the help of his old girlfriend Jennifer Bovano who is a US Attorney to remember his old life as a real journalist who worked to help society, and uncover the corruption.

    And with her help and the help of a homicide detective Aaron Kovacs, and an FBI agent Fowler Briggs who turned from an enemy to an ally, castle tries to uncover the organization behind the killings.

    I liked the plot of this book, it was very good, the dialogue was excellent, the psychological aspects were supreme here, each character was unique in its own context and thoughts, yet I didn’t like how the idea of ” The end justifies the means ” was presented in the book as acceptable way of change. Also I felt that the ending wasn’t satisfactory in general.

    The narrator was Ernie Sprance, Sparance did great job as a narrator while he gave each character its own voice and accent, we could see the type of personality by the voice and the accent he chose for the character, his reading for the plot lines was just awesome, I just felt each scene happening in front of me, and it really made the story a whole lot better for me.

    Audiobook provided for review by the narrator.

    "I enjoyed this book WAY too much"
    What did you love best about The Blood of Tyrants?

    It's about a possible conspiracy to kill liberal politicians. What's not to like? The ending ends a bit too well. (You'll know what I mean.) Great pleasure read.
