Thad Matthews is bored being home all day with nothing to do. He decides to visit the newly open restaurant in his neighborhood where he meets Sam Lupino, the owner. Thad and Sam have an immediate attraction to each other, as well as share a night of intimacy. Afterward, unexplained things started happening suspending their promising relationship.

The Blue Moon Café is a dark thriller that takes you on a psychological journey into the killer’s psyche. The setting is Seattle’s gay district and all the victims are young gay men. The characters are very realistic. The well-defined plot profiles a serial killer’s distorted mentality, a killer who has the instincts of a wolf. Thad is currently unemployed but tries to stay busy between searching for jobs. He is smart and observant. With each murder, coupled with the disappearance of Sam’s whole family, Thad became aware of the pattern. He also grows even more fearful when his new friend Jared has a near miss with the monster. Thad is caught between his traumatized friend and his mysterious lover in a web of suspense that could prove deadly.

Sam is in an emotional conflict between Thad and his family’s secret. Coming from Sicily, the family chose Seattle for the hunting grounds. Sam knew it was a mistake to be with Thad; however, he allowed his out of control passions to rule his decision. In a family of werewolves, they are all hunters, but which of them feast on humans? The amazing Rick R. Reed presents the answer by building layer upon layer of thought provoking, as well as petrifying, clues plus points out the serial killer’s warped reasoning. The Blue Moon Café is a dramatically potent suspenseful story illustrated with an unnerving realism. This is a dark fierce murder mystery, interwoven with the emotional turmoil of the frightening unknown danger, in addition to an unstable relationship. This is an exhilarating macabre fright saga at its most outstanding.
