FBI independent contractor Jake Cole deciphers the language of murderers by reconstructing three-dimensional crime scene models in his head—a grim gift that has left his nerves frayed and his psyche fragile. When his father, an important American painter, is almost killed in an Alzheimer’s-fueled accident, Jake is forced to come home and confront a past he spent a quarter of a century trying to forget. Once there, a brutal double homicide teaches Jake that even though he has forgotten about the past, it has not yet forgotten about him.

As Jake tries to make sense of his father’s unhinged existence, he discovers thousands of seemingly meaningless canvases stacked in the studio—a bizarre trail of dust-covered breadcrumbs that Jake believes lead to a killer called the Bloodman. All of his work seems to come apart just as another malevolent beast descends on the town—a Category 5 hurricane that is as unstoppable as the murderer. Pinned between the two forces of nature, Jake realizes that old ghosts are on the move.

Bloodman will leave you reeling long after you have finished listening to it.

“A Sixth Sense-like take on Thomas Harris in his prime...Days after racing to the finish, and letting the book rattle around in the unconscious, the story still unsettles me.” —National Post

“Jake Cole has to be one of the most compelling and tormented protagonists in recent crime fiction…Bloodman is a remarkable debut.” —Booklist (starred review)

Quotes & Awards

  • “Days after racing to the finish, and letting the book rattle around in the unconscious, the story still unsettles me. Clearly this was Pobi’s aim in choosing the method of death for his poor victims, to get both metaphorically and literally under the reader’s skin so they never forget death’s primal, visceral horror.”

    National Post (Toronto)

  • “Pobi’s novel is a relentless, driving masterpiece.”

    Suspense Magazine

  • “A gut-punch of a book. With bold bloody strokes, Pobi paints a tale of horrific murders and familial obligation, showing the grace and grit of ten first-time novelists. Try closing your eyes after digging into this one.”

    Gregg Hurwitz, author of You’re Next, and Trust No One

  • “Heartbreaking and chilling.”

    Andrew Pyper, author of The Killing Circle

  • Bloodman is not so much as book as it is a journey, one that is both beautiful, and horrific. And far from anything you expected.”

    Deryn Collier, author of Confined Space

  • “Jake Cole has to be one of the most compelling and tormented protagonists in recent crime fiction…The pacing is relentless, and Pobi’s updates on the growth of the hurricane are almost welcome interludes amid the pervasive creepiness and horror of the growing body count and Jake’s appalling past. Bloodman is a remarkable debut.”
