Book Description:
What drives a small town in New England in the late 1920s to lynch a man? Immigrant Nick DeCosta's skill as a wine grower makes him a fortune as a moonshiner and puts him at odds with the 'shine sales of the MacKay clan, even though he's wed to their wild youngest daughter. Is this the real reason he is lynched? And who is the second corpse in the woods?

My Review:
This is a book about wicked relationships, blatant betrayal and treacherous deceit. The novel grew from an incident related to the author by his grandmother when she was in her nineties. It's written with the dialect and local jargon of the times in New England in 1929. It's a dark mystery with characters that feel very real about the anti-immigrant sentiment of the 1920's. I look forward to reading more from this author and I would recommend this book to those who love dark mysteries from the 1920's era of prohibition and Ku-Klux-Klan lynchings. ( )

I thought Blood Harvest was a good hard hitting book. Well written. It incorporates the KKK but in a way that it makes the reader feel sorry for the people who had to put with this group back in the days. ( )
