  Can't put it down , 07/29/2013
Reviewer: Joe
"Ink In His Blood" is a taut thriller about a serial killer up to no good by veteran police reporter J.M. Roman. Set in the late 1960s in Philadelphia, it's intricately plotted with each surprise carefully leading to the next. Carefully researched, "Ink" perfectly captures the feel of that time and place and provides a glimpse into the long-gone world of big-city newspapering. It will have you staying up later at night than you planned, thinking, "Just one more chapter ... one more chapter ... one more chapter ..." "Ink" is the entertaining debut of a new voice in fiction. Can't wait to read more!

  Ink captures an era , 10/12/2013
Reviewer: Red
Setting is key in this quirkly tale of stifled talent. J.M. Roman's knowledge of a big city newspaper -- and the big city in which it operated -- is encyclopedic. He literally resurrects Philly and its burbs when print news still reigned. Not only is the story of a man's deadly job turning fatal highly entertaining, but the book should be a new must-read for journalism students studying the history of their craft.
