Blood in the Bayou by C.M. Sutter Book Summary

On her first assignment since her promotion to SSA status in the Serial Crimes Unit of the FBI, Jade Monroe and her new partner, Lorenzo DeLeon, are tasked to southern Louisiana, where disturbing discoveries have been made. Human bones have been found in numerous sites deep in bayou country, and the locals aren't too excited about having outsiders poking around in their business.

When Jade has a chance meeting with a local hunter, she finds his assistance exactly what she needs to break through that unwelcoming barrier. She brings him on board as their go-between.
The hunter inserts himself into their investigation and gains Jade's trust, but is he authentic, or does he have his own agenda?

A bone-chilling blindside and a dangerous chase through the Louisiana swamps is just the beginning, but the question remains—is Jade the hunter, or is she the one being hunted?

It was good until it wasn’tI like the idea of a female FBI agent. Though after the beginning of the story, it seemed like the author went off of what tv shows and movies do for police investigations, rather than doing actual research. And this lack of intelligent thought from the main character really turned me off the story..Score: 3/5

Not So GoodI usually like C.M. Sutter, and her Monroe sisters, but this one just wasn’t good. I finished it but it was just painful to read. I agree with some of the other reviewers. The FBI and Jade were irritatingly clueless, and unbelievably naive. Very gruesome storyline..Score: 2/5

There is a reason it was freeI feel bad posting a bad review but there is a fine line that this novel crossed for me. I don’t want to give it away for anyone else, but what I can say, with regards to informants, this author needs to do better research. I’m pretty sure no regular joe off the street can suddenly be a key consultant in a fbi investigation. Now I know this is a fiction novel! However, as an enthusiast for books like this… this killed me and I couldn’t continue in the book cause “getting lost in fiction” was too far out for me in this!.Score: 2/5

DisappointedI have liked Sutter’s books until now. This is the worst depiction of my home state since the horrible movie The Big Easy. Seriously? Has Sutter ever been to La.? Alligators waiting for someone to just hit the water so they can eat them? Don’t even get me started on the pigs and the offensive depiction of hunters. Shame on you!.Score: 1/5

ExcitingI really enjoyed reading this book. I could not wait for the ending. It did have to much info on the names of the people who are irrelevant in this story (like at the wedding) but I couldn't wait to see who the killer was. Great read!.Score: 5/5

Catchy title.I am sorry to say that the story would have been better but for the dumbest pair of FBI agent’s in print since Lestraud from the Holmes movie series with Basil Rathbone. Really? Inclusion of the criminal into the case is training 101 in criminalistics. I can’t believe you got this published. The story line was decent inspite of the flawed main characters. Kept me interested wondering how long it would take these 2 twits who were supposed to be top agents in their field, to figure out who dun it. I will not bother with anymore of this series due to the authors very poor choice in FBI agent portrayal. Really doesn’t show them in the best light at all. I am disappointed that you think so little of your 2 main characters abilities..Score: 2/5

Blood in the bayouWas too frustrating to read. To be fair I didn’t finish the book. It was like watching a horror movie where the person takes the serial killer home. Jade was too stupid to live. Quit when she had Billy sign on to consult for the FBI. Could not do any more. My time is worth more. As an analyst she was terrible..Score: 2/5

Things difficult to believeIt really bothered me that Jade was foolish enough to hop in a car with a complete stranger while investigating abductions. It just doesn’t add up for a supposedly crack agent to take that kind of chance. Duckbills.Score: 4/5

Dragging....I have read many novels of such kind, and observed one thing, ‘you can’t discuss anything about an ongoing investigation with anyone’. If a new comer do that, its understandable, but u can’t do such mistakes when u r experienced and professional FBI agent. Jade Monroe, the MC here, literally discussed the whole case with a total stranger, in their first meeting. She was the main and only reason behind Mark and Billy’s death. Moreover, no one ever checked ‘bob’s’ ID or double checked his credentials. They didn’t have a slightest doubt on him, even though he clearly mentioned that he was expert hunter. In the end, they got the list of literally 5 names- 4 to be considered- but they didn’t even have a look at it. The author just wanted Jade to be that hunter’s last victim- all useless dragging. Although, it looked like Karma got to her for whatever Mark and Billy suffered because of her. Verdict: Even if u ignore grammatical mistakes, the story gets ur blood pressure high when u see such professionals acting like a rookie. After uncountable pages of irritating storyline, the death of the culprit will satisfy u though..Score: 3/5
