About this title

Synopsis:

FBI Agent Terry Mclaeb comes out of retirement to investigate the murder of the woman that gave a new heart so he could survive. With the help of the victim sister he discover that her murder is not just a hit a run incident, but a calculated murder to get the organs of her rare blod group. Under pressure from the LAPD detetives, Mclaeb becomes a suspect himself. He is is convinced though that the murderer was hired by some famous figure . His only mistake is not guessing that famous figure.

Review:

Michael Connelly has been attracting fans by the droves with his hard-boiled, edgy thrillers. A former crime reporter for the Los Angeles Times, Connelly combines a poet's ear for language with a deep understanding of the criminal mind to create dark, dramatic stories that raise the thriller genre to a new level.

In Blood Work, Connelly introduces a new character, Terry McCaleb, who was a top man at the FBI until a heart ailment forced his early retirement. Now he lives a quiet life, nursing his new heart and restoring the boat on which he lives in Los Angeles Harbor. Although he isn't looking for any excitement, when Graciela Rivers asks him to investigate her sister Gloria's death, her story hooks him immediately: the new heart beating in McCaleb's chest is Gloria's.

As McCaleb investigates the evidence in the case, the suspected randomness of the crime gives way to an unsettling suspicion of a twisted intelligence behind the murder. Soon McCaleb finds himself on the trail of a killer more horrifying than anything he ever encountered before.
