Blood Porn

Blood Porn is a fascinating story of porn-making gone bad. Jeremy Young is a runaway from a juvenile delinquent’s institution. The last time anyone saw Jeremy, he was starring in an adult video. Derek Young, Jeremy’s brother, is concerned that he has not seen him or heard from him for a while. Brad Frame is set to find the young man if only for Derek’s peace of mind. While doing his investigation, Brad discovers that Jeremy was recruited to do porn in Maple Grove, the juvenile institution expected to shape him. As if this is not bad enough, Brad finds that this is not an isolated case. Many under-age men have been recruited from the same institution. A while later, the body of a young man in the same institution turns up, and just like Jeremy, the young man had been recruited into porn.

Things turn deadly at some point during the investigation. This makes it clear that the illicit operation of pornographers is not about to stop. The criminals view Brad and Sharon as a hindrance, and they are ready to eliminate them as well. This story starts with a simple case involving a lost young man and a brother who believes that his sibling was used by the same institution that was supposed to protect him, what Brad and his partner Sharon did not expect to bump into two murders and a ring of pornographers so determined to cover their tracks that they are not afraid to take away another life.

Getting leads as to what happened to Jeremy means that Brad and Sharon have to spend hours watching porn. The duo also interviews a few people connected to Maple Grove detention center. Sharon maintains her sense of humor throughout the story, and it is easy to see why Brad chose her as a partner in the first place. Away from Jeremy’s case, a lot is going on in Brad’s and Sharon’s personal lives. Young love is budding, and the two are learning new things about each other.

This is a well-written story of unruly young boys and the evil people in the world who are out to exploit them. The story touches on problems at home that lead young people astray and destroy their lives for good. Get to discover what happened to Jeremy and other young men like him who are recruited into pornography. While the title is about porn, there are no porn scenes in this book. The story highlights the business aspect of it and the exploitative pornographers who will push the porn stars beyond their limits to ensure that their videos are appealing to the masses — definitely a great read.
