Book Description

June 11 1992
Peter Houston wanted to find the grave of the war-hero father he never knew—a yearning that drew him thousands of miles from home to a military cemetery in France. He never dreamed that his private pilgrimage would unearth a decades-long secret and plunge him into a deadly labyrinth of intrigue and murder. As ruthless assassins hunt him through the cities of Europe, he struggles to stay alive, but when they murder the woman he loves, he turns from hunter to hunted—and swears a blood oath of vengeance.

3.0 out of 5 stars Hell bent on revenge. Not survival. May 31 2004
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I read this, wanting to love it. While I will check out more of David Morrell, I didn't look at this as a novel of survival, but of hell on wheels revenge, and with no consequences. The setting in France was awesome. Takes you to a different place in the world. I thought it was a good attempt of a "kill or be killed" kind of book, but after awhile, I just didn't see it in that light at all.
So, in closing I can say that I'll give Morrell another shot. I loved the Rambo movies and would love the chance to read "First Blood" or something that will stick out so I can further read his material. In saying that, the Rambo movies were also movies motivated by revenge, but it wasn't the point Morrell was trying to get across.
It was hard for me to give this only 3 stars. But as a man who makes up his mind and sticks to his guns, that's all I can give it. Maybe next time.

While David Morrell is one of my favorite authors, I can not in good conscience recommend this particular submission. Blood Oath lacks several things, not the least of which is substance. You can not develop a liking to the whiny, pitiful, under-developed protagonist; Peter Houston. If this is your first read by Morrell, please don't judge him on this work. Try "The Brotherhood of the Rose", or " The Fraternity of the Stone", or "The Fifth Profession" to get a glimpse of what this wonderful author is truly capable of.

4.0 out of 5 stars Morrell Is great April 8 2002
By Greg
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This was the 1st of many Morrell books that I have read. This book made me want to read his other works such as Desperate Measures and I am currently reading First Blood. In this book you don't want to miss a thing and you are alwasys thinking. Morrell is great at making the hunter become the hunted. You can feel for Houston. He was told his whole life by his mother about his great war hero father and when he goes to pay his respects to his father people are trying to kill him and succeed in killing his wife. This is a book I would recomend to anyone.

5.0 out of 5 stars I love this book! They can't get any better Nov. 18 1996
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Although this book is a little shorter than his usual writings,
I think it is another great representation of how awesome an author David Morrell is.
His thrillers have been great through the end and this one
is no exception. Peter Houston, looking for his father's grave, finds
hidden secrets that are revealed throughout the book. Make sure you read this
outstanding book from the great thriller writer we have all
grown to love, David Morrell.

3.0 out of 5 stars Pretty good, but definitely not his best. Aug. 12 1997
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
David Morrell writes some truly excellent action/thriller novels. I have always found his work difficult to put down, just as this one was. However, this book had one of the lamest endings that he has ever contrived. It just left me unsatisfied, as the main bad guy just kind of dies in a random fashion while running around in his cheesy vampire outfit. It just was not up to par with what I expect from Morrell

This was the first book I have read from David Morrell and this book is a prime example of why I continue to read his novels. Very original and easy to read-but hard to put down and dissapointing when you do! I loved the charecters, but most of all I loved the ending! It leaves you dazzled and left thinking! David you have done great again! Buy this book!
