    One thought on “The Flesh, the Blood, and the Fire”

    1. Taking historical events and weaving a novel around it may not be a new idea, but S.A. Swiniarski (better known in some circles as S.A. Swann) pulls it off with remarkable panache here. At times sweeping, at times introspective, but always atmospheric, The Flesh, The Blood and The Fire has a lot more going for it than against.There are three notable events the author works with here, namely: (1) the Cleveland torso murders, (2) the Eliot Ness campaign to clean up police corruption and (3) the Se [...]

    2. An excellent story that uses a factual mystery, that being the torso murders in Cleveland that took place back in the 30's, but adds it own unique twist and explanation involving vampires. Easily one of the better vampire novels I've read and I've read more than my share.

    3. I loved this book.Gangsters, Vampires, and Elliot Ness in Cleveland in the 1930's.mix in so real events and you have a great Vampire Thriller.

    4. The book was OK . Most times books sort of taper off toward the end. I thought the story got a little more interesting the further along I read. Would I recommend the book? No
