      Blood Oath was written by Willaim W. Johnstone, and published by Pinnacle Books in 1999.

      This was my first book by William Johnstone; it was an unexpectedly gripping story, complete with baffling and gruesome murders.

      I finished the book in one night that was how carried away I was. The Eleven Elite, a bunch of eleven rich kids in Denton, Missouri were holding an initiation night for two newbies, twins Paul and Judy Evans.

      That night, only eleven teenagers returned

      home. Judy was raped, tortured and killed, while Paul was missing.

      Case closed. Twenty six years later, teenagers, mainly females, turned up dead, in exactly the same condition as Judy raped, tortured then killed.

      The cases were handled by Lieutenant Joe Davis and his partner, Erica. Joe nursed a hatred towards the rich and snobbish, especially the Elite Eleven, who behaved as if they were above the law.

      As more dead bodies turned up among the ...

      • families of the Elite Eleven, Joe believed that the missing Paul Evans had returned to claim justice. His sheriff was getting jittery; sternly warning Joe to keep his investigation away from the Elite Eleven.

        I knew the killer from the beginning; but I was not sure of his new identity. The ending is somehow disappointing.

        Maybe the author should have kept it simple, instead of muddying the waters. Instead of one killer, it turned out to be a team

        of two; the other psychopath was the long-lost sister of Joe Davis.

        I had felt sorry for Paul at the beginning; after all, he had endured so much torture and pain at the hands of the Elite Eleven; however my compassion turned to disgust when he was no longer taking revenge; it had became a game for two crazy psychos who were trying to see who could do better. Anyway, it is a tense and absorbing thriller the suspense is undeniable.
