Blood Work : Winner of Deutscher Krimi-Preis, Kategorie International 2000, and the Anthony Award 1999, Category Best Novel
"Blood Work" -- that's what Terrell McCaleb used to call his job at the FBI. Until a heart condition forced him to take early retirement, he headed all investigations of serial murders in the Los Angeles area. Now he is recovering from a heart transplant operation and leads a quiet life. But McCaleb's calm seas turn rough when a story in the "L.A. Times" brings him face-to-face with Graciela Rivers, a darkly intriguing woman who hooks him with the story of her sister's unsolved murder. Against doctor's orders and his own better judgement, McCaleb agrees to take up the case. Soon Terry is on the trail of a killer whose crimes are more baffling and horrifying than anything he has ever encountered. It's a mind-bending, breakneck case that leads McCaleb into the darkest place he's ever known, unsure whether he even wants to survive his own investigation.

Our customer reviews
Blood Work is a good, old-fashioned detective novel. Ex-FBI agent is convinced to take on one more case; case becomes complicated; agent finds himself in trouble; situation is resolved; everybody but the criminal is happy. Thrilling enough to hold my interest, but familiar enough to be comforting and comfortable, this book was perfect for my state of mind when I read it. I would certainly recommend it.show moreby Nurture Waratah
