Book Featurette: Nurse Blood (The Organ Harvester Series)

nurseblood

Sonya Garret roams the bar scene hoping to steal the heart of an unsuspecting victim—literally… Sonya, better known as Nurse Blood, is part of a team of lethal organ harvesters who seek out the weak to seduce, kill, and part out for profit on the black market. When Sonya meets Daniel McCoy, a young man recovering from a broken engagement, he’s just another kill to line her pockets with quick cash. Agent David McCoy vows to find out how and why his twin brother Daniel disappeared… Daniel’s body hasn’t been found, and the leads are slim to none, but it won’t stop David from dedicating his life to solving his brother’s case. When the evidence finally uncovers the shocking truth that Daniel’s disappearance is linked to organ harvesters, David knows his brother is most likely dead. But he’s determined to stop the villains’ killing spree before they strike again. One last harvest is all Sonya and her team need to put their murderous past behind them… A family with the rarest blood type in the world is the only thing standing between Sonya and retirement. David McCoy and the FBI are hot on their trail, though, and multiple targets make this the most complicated harvest yet. Will David unravel Sonya’s wicked plans in time to avenge his brother and save an innocent family? Or will Sonya cash in her final kill and escape for good? Murder for profit stops for no man when you’re Nurse Blood.

Nurse Blood, according to reviewers:

“Really great read! I enjoyed meeting the crazy cast of characters in this book. I am new to Rebecca and liked her writing style. I look forward to reading more by her. I already own a few more. Hope to see more Nurse Blood in the future” -Amazon Review.

“Nurse Blood, AKA Sonya, is part of a skilled team dealing in black market organ sales. This novel is not for the faint of heart, but there isn’t any gratuitous gore hell-bent on shock valve. The pace is fast, but not too quick. There’s an eerie blend of bloodlust, greed, and oddly, benevolence motivating Sonya. This makes her character interesting enough to find yourself ‘pulling for her,’ despite some of the most god-awful things she does. With this, she evens has a way of luring the reader with twisted sensuality (which actually may be more of a revelation of the reader’s character.) 🙂 If you’re looking for a spicy, thriller-mystery, you won’t go wrong with Nurse Blood” -Book Sandworm.

“I have read numerous of Ms. Bresser’s books. Most, if not all have been zombie books. I really enjoyed reading a book from her that was not in the same theme. Not that I mind her zombie books, they are awesome, but because it gave me an opportunity to see a different style. Ms. Besser does not hold back. Her books are not for the faint of heart. I say that as a compliment. As with all her books, I was left wanting more. I am thrilled that there will be more in the Harvester Series. In regards to the characters, I found them well developed. As the book progressed we kept learning what made each character tick. At times it was hard to hate Sonya. I had to remind myself that she was the villain. But leave it to Ms. Besser, just when I was forgetting how evil Sonya was, she quickly reminded me. If you have not read any of her books, I highly recommend, but as I stated, she does not coddle the reader. Again, that is a compliment! Oh, btw I read this 400+ page book in a day. Yeah, it was a fast read!” -Amazon Review.

Fright Fest: Beg (2014)

 

begposter

Raw and gritty, BEG brings back the richness of horror in a way that reminds the viewer of what drew people to the genre in the first place.
BEG takes place during the Halloween season in the town of Salem.

Young, attractive women are murdered at a gym, bar, sorority house, and a Halloween party with no clues left behind other than the word “BEG” written in blood at the crime scenes. There is no rhyme or reason to the killings – the victims have no links to each other.

The local law enforcement – headed by their senior, star detective – tries to solve the cases, but with little to go on they are left chasing their tail while more and more murders are committed.

The area is deeply steeped in legends of past horrors and some blame them for what has befallen the town.

A new detective, who transferred to the town, is put in charge of the case in hopes of finding new leads through new eyes. But he’s stumped as well, and since he’s the new guy in town and now in charge, he has to deal with the negative attitudes of the police force.

When the detective’s teenage sister is kidnapped while camping with friends, he makes it his mission to find her before it’s too late. He gets a break when he’s told about a report of screams in a certain area of the nearby woods (a report that was hidden from him by disgruntled officers).

After the attack on his family, the detective decides to pack up and leave town…never having apprehended the culprit.

The murderer strikes again, but this time, the town fights back the only way it can: with its history and tortured past.

BEG is classic horror. Watching it you’re pleasantly surprised by the darkness through visuals as well as through the storyline.

There are hints throughout that drag you further down the rabbit hole as you wonder where those clues are taking you. You, at times, think you have things figured out, only for you to change your mind a few minutes later. The murderer was actually my second suspected villain, but one I did identify before it was revealed.

There’s some amazing imagery in the film. My personal favorites are when the killer came up behind the young woman at the bar and was reflected in the window of her car; the aftermath at the sorority house, specifically the girl who was studying; and when the killer came out of the water behind the detective’s teenage sister.

You’ll want to pop some popcorn, turn out the lights, curl up on the couch with your significant other, and remember what date night at home is all about while you watch BEG for Halloween.

Note: There is nudity in the film.
