“Duncan is a commanding writer who toys with his readers as all good thriller writers should. The author knows how to squeeze a story through a pin prick in a dam wall, the story unfolding in tantalizingly measured steps, the hallmark of great thriller writing.” - Isobel Blackthorn

The LibLearnX is an annual exhibit that shares the latest publications across many genres. But for attendees just looking for a book that reads like a thrilling action movie, they can find one in Ed Duncan’s “Pigeon-Blood Red.”

The novel is the first in a trilogy but it already has all the tropes where they should be. It has even been adapted into an audio drama podcast. It tells the story of an underworld enforcer named Richard “Rico” Sanders, who lives the gritty hitman’s life. But after a usual job goes unusually sideways, he is forced to leave the familiar home ground of Chicago to pursue his target in sunny Honolulu.

Things get further complicated when one target becomes many, and Rico finds himself with unlikely admiration for the people he’s supposed to kill.

Still, the stakes remain high and many readers are sure to keep turning the pages to know how the hitman reaches the inevitable hard decision.

For LibLearnX attendees with a love of action thrillers, the very first pages have a tense yet fast-paced writing that brings the genre to mind. It’s also further enhanced by Ed Duncan’s own law background, as the story takes the reader further into the twists and turns of the criminal underworld. All the while, he is clear and concise with the thoughts of his characters. Duncan’s own take on the ‘hitman with a conscience’ has been hailed by reviewers as surprisingly fresh and prompts first-timers to check out the rest of the trilogy.

“Pigeon-Blood Red” by Ed Duncan is now available on Amazon and Barnes & Noble.
