The Blue Moon Cafe by Rick R. Reed

Someone—or something—is killing Seattle’s gay men.

A creature moves through the darkest night, lit only by the full moon, taking them, one by one, from the rainy city’s gay gathering areas.

Someone—or something—is falling in love with Thad Matthews.

Against a backdrop of horror and fear, young Thad finds his first true love in the most unlikely of places—a new Italian restaurant called The Blue Moon Cafe. Sam is everything Thad has ever dreamed of in a man: compassionate, giving, handsome, and with brown eyes Thad feels he could sink into. And Sam can cook! But as the pair’s love begins to grow, so do the questions and uncertainties, the main one being, why do Sam’s unexplained disappearances always coincide with the full moon?”

The Blue Moon Cafe is a luscious dark thriller. The suspenseful plot swept me up in to the streets of Seattle. Reed has done an outstanding job of inviting the audience into the twisted mind of the serial killer as he hunts his prey. Every flesh ripping scene and taunting chase of the attacks were seared into my memory.

Fortunately, for us not all the characters are so mentally unraveled and thirsty for the kill. Well maybe a little thirsty, but thankfully for wanton indulgences.

Reed scares us out of our seats in one paragraph, then seduces us back into our soft warm beds with the next. The carnal passion between Sam and Thad enslaved me. Thad’s vulnerability and urgent need for Sam’s love captured my heart.

The cast of secondary characters seasons this novel into a deliciously horrifying adventure. This read has truly leaves me hoping for more.

About Justice

Justice strongly believes two books a week keeps you healthy and happy. (Three or more prevents any depression and long lines at the checkout). Reading is her first love, she started her health regimen at the tender age of 5 when the County Bookmobile did its weekly run through her neighbor hood. Now being a mom she fits in her workout in between mommy duties, wife duties and work duties. Reading is a work out if done right, it even cancels out the chocolate donuts you ate with your kids this morning!
