I accepted this Arc of Blond Cargo after getting in a romantic slump; you know, where you are burnt out on reading a certain kind of genre and the only way to get your juices going again in the direction you want then to go in you have to go in a totally different direction for a while. Well, my go to genre is mystery/suspense.

    11. Blond CargoBy John LansingThe book speaks about every new immigrant group bringing in the good and the bad to the country. Looking at this story those lines could not have been drawn clearer.

    13. Another excellent thriller from John Lansing! I re-read Lansing's first book, The Devil's Necktie, before starting this one and was surprised at how well it held up a second time.

Blond Cargo didn't disappoint! It is every bit a page-turner as the first story. Fans of crime drama shou [...]

The man has his flaws which only add to his persona. Blond Cargo is an exciting thriller with wonderfully crafted characters – from the beautiful blond Mafioso princess of the title to the smarmy pervert who is about to sell h [...]

    15. I loved Lansing's book Devil's Necktie, and when I read Blond Cargo I was happy to hang out with Jack Bertolino again and to find that Devil's Necktie was very definitely NOT a one off. Blond Cargo is every bit as intense as Devil's Necktie was - the ending is a page turning race to the finish. Loved the characters, loved the pace, loved the story lines. I don't know when the next one is due out but there better be another in this series - I've not yet had enough of Jack and his "rogue's gallery [...]
