***THIS BOOK WAS RECEIVED FROM A GOODREADS GIVEAWAY***
Even though I don’t usually read books in mid-series, I’ll make an exception for a book I receive for free. Fortunately, I was able to deduce what happened in book 1 of the Dead Man’s Rule series just based on the context of the characters’ interactions. In fact, I’d probably like to read Dead Man's Rule , since it sounds like it was a pretty exciting plot. Of course, I’ve found legal thrillers like this one to be pretty stand-alone, which helped me really get into its engaging, if not somewhat predictable, plot.

What I found most interesting about Blood Brothers, was the Christian undertones it took in its narrative. These moments helped to flesh out the characters, but only once did it feel like the reader was being browbeaten with some ideology. The infusion of realistic Christian characters was a pleasant surprise, especially considering that their beliefs did help to guide their actions in this taut, legal thriller. It even went so far as to provide a contrast to some of the less scrupulous characters, thus making it an easy choice on who to root for during the trial. At the very least, it wasn’t pushy with its Christian themes, which can sometimes happen when writing to that particular audience.

I really liked the parallel plotlines that helped to expand the story into something more than just a courtroom drama, even if the one centering around the pharmaceutical development was a bit predictable and cliché. Overall, this was a well-written piece with a believable sequence of events, a logical set of conclusions, and an exciting set of twists. I wouldn’t be surprised if something like this were to happen in the real world, since so much of the plot was well-researched and based in facts.

A solid story with plenty of excitement and intrigue, I give Blood Brothers 4.0 stars out of 5.

Blood Brothers was a good, if somewhat low-key, legal thriller.
By "low-key" I mean that the trial was not one with sudden tricks and traps or startling revelations. It was workmanlike; no Perry Mason moments. The reason for the civil trial which was an argument over the control of a pharmaceutical company between two brothers,one forcing the other out. The other trying to regain control. Behind it all: the development of a new drug , a brain stimulant that could give people super intelligence, super concentration, super insight...and, well you know, A SuperBrain. A drug that could turn a good , moderately successful corporation into a fabulously rich one.

The investigation into the effects of the drug , fiscal manipulations and into possible black market sales of the unapproved drug was more interesting and more explosive-literally- than the trial.

Some violence, but not graphic. Romance but no sex. That is because the book has a religious focus . It did not bother me, though, nor did it weaken the story. But if you are looking for lurid, it will not be found in " Blood Brothers." After the climax, and I will not bounce a spoiler at you, the factors of forgiveness and service to others are prominent.

As a one word review "workmanlike" would cover it. Enjoyable, relaxing , interesting and forgettable.

"Blood Brothers" is a well written litigation thriller about the Bjornsen brothers and a new drug called Neurostim. Ben, an independently wealthy attorney who takes very select cases, it's approached by Gunnar Bjornsen for representation in a lawsuit to get the key steps to make Neurostim after he has been forced to step down as president and CEO. Karl, his brother, is the shady other side of the case. Complete with PIs, questionable deaths, and shady science, thus is an intriguing book.

I really appreciated that Neurostim is not just a performance enhancer that unlocks the mythical 90% of our brain we don't use (in fact, we use all of it always) but rather it makes neurons fire faster. This could have unintended consequences and surely enough, though in animal study stages, there are problems and cover ups you would expect in a pharmaceutical thriller.

The lawsuit is well written and an interesting premise for the story. It's an enjoyable read all in all. I also enjoyed the alternating perspectives which give the reader more knowledge than any individual character.

Please note that I received this book through Goodreads giveaways.

I really enjoyed this book on many levels. Besides the very well written and interesting plot, I love the believable characters. The Christian tone creates a delightful addition to the story that fosters faith and our quest for what matters most to us. A very satisfying read that will have me reading more of Rick Ackers' books.

Great book! Many winding roads throughout the plot and character development. Surprises, dead-ends, and questions in every chapter. Completely caught off-guard by religious undertones, but enjoyed their added layer of interest.

I won this book as a result of the Goodreads giveaway. There are parts of the book that hold your interest and sprint right along and others where they creep along. I especially loved the trip to Norway and references to sights there. Enjoy.
My husband and I have read all of this author's books and enjoyed them all. We love suspenseful legal thrillers and this one delivers. Hoping for another Ben Corbin book. Will definitely buy the next book this author writes.
