Dead Body Road: Bad Blood #3 Review

Bree Hale gets painted into a corner.

Were at the halfway mark in the Dead Body Road: Bad Blood series with issue #3 of 6. The war between Bree Hale and crime boss Monk continues to heat up as their search for Bree’s brother Hunter grows closer and closer. The only thing standing in Bree’s way is her ex-lover, police officer Marshall Dane. Dane’s dilemma: help the woman he still loves, or drive her as far away from Monk as he can before it’s too late.

Dead Body Road: Bad Blood continues to be a bona fide badass book. This issue, the hunter becomes the hunted as Monk’s forces close in on Bree and officer Dane. Most of the fun comes from some well-paced car chases courtesy of Monk’s henchmen looking to kill Bree. But the real standout this go-round is the impeccable pairing of Hale and Dane. Their dialogue and subtle flirtation back and forth are just some of many enjoyable moments during the story.

Writer Justin Jordan does a terrific job of keeping Bree Hale as the hero. She’s never overshadowed by Dane; she even has to save him a few times despite him being there for her protection. This in turn allows the reader to view her as the real action heroine that she is.

Benjamin Tiesma’s pencil work remains just as strong, solid, and detailed as ever. They say the eyes are the window to the soul; Tiesma’s facial features help sell that theory. There’s something about the way he draws the eyes in his characters that make them feel like real, living, breathing people.
