FIVE STAR REVIEW FOR "THE TRIBE"!
Most Helpful Customer Reviews
This one will keep you on the edge of your seat all the way to the very last page. Bruce Bradley does a knockout job of continually building the suspense with this paranormal crime thriller. The plot continually takes unexpected turns so you never know what will happen next, and the ending totally caught me by surprise. I really liked Jackson Leeds as a main character. His issues with authority bring out a side of him I didn't expect, and the dream thing he's got going on kept me wondering if he was just imagining her or if she was actually haunting him like Bonnie said. Great read, one that was easy to get completely lost in, with sharp characters and a killer ending.
I am a former Napa winemaker with more than 30 years of experience in working with wine. In 2005 my late ex-wife (who died of cancer in 1999) began to invade my sleep. Sometimes the dreams were pleasurable, but often they were not. Once, when I was about to tell her that I had divorced her and that she had died, and that she needed to leave me alone, she suddenly turned to me.
"I need you to do me a favor!" she said urgently.
"What favor?"I asked.
"I need you to wake up!" she said.
Which I did.
Like myself, Jackson Leeds is a winemaker who works for Pagean
Cellars, near the town of Rutherford, in Napa Valley. also, like myself,
his sleep is haunted by his late ex-wife. Jackson is attracted to Bonnie
Sajean, who works in the tasting room and who definitely wants his
attention. Unfortunately, he has rules against getting involved with any
woman who works under him. One evening, after declining a dinner
invitation from Bonnie, he falls asleep and dreams once more of his
wife, who chides him:
"If you had only just given the woman what she wanted, she wouldn't
be out right now, getting herself killed!"
This begins a real nightmare for Jackson--one in which he is not only
suspected by the police, but also targeted by the real killers...
