Source: I received Pigeon – Blood Red from the author, Ed Duncan, at the request of his publicist, Kelsey Butts of Book Publicity Services. In return, I will provide a fair and honest review.


For underworld enforcer Richard “Rico” Sanders, it seemed like an ordinary job: retrieve his gangster boss’s stolen goods, and teach the person responsible a lesson.

But the chase quickly goes sideways and takes Rico from the mean streets of Chicago to sunny Honolulu. There, the hardened hit man finds himself in uncharted territory, when innocent bystanders are accidentally embroiled in a crime.

As Rico pursues his new targets, hunter and prey develop an unlikely respect for one another.

Soon, he is faced with a momentous decision: follow his orders to kill the very people who have won his admiration, or refuse and endanger the life of the woman he loves?

My Thoughts

This the first book of two. I actually read them in reverse order.  If you are interested in reading the review of the second book, “The Last Straw” you can check it out here (Review of The Last Straw, by Ed Duncan).

In both of Duncan’s books, I enjoy his articulate and concise writing style.

Pigeon – Blood Red is a modern gangster, crime thriller. There was suspense from start to finish. It was a fast-paced read at only 203 pages. I would recommend this book just as much as I recommended “The Last Straw.”

Entertaining, Gritty and Nailbiting
