9780091936358: Blood Ties: (Bill Smith/Lydia Chin)

Some crimes strike too close to home...

Private detective Bill Smith is hurtled headlong into the most provocative - and personal - case of his career when he receives a chilling late night telephone call from the NYPD. They're holding his fifteen-year-old nephew Gary. But before he can find out what's going on, Gary escapes Bill's custody and disappears into the dark and unfamiliar streets...

With his partner, Lydia Chin, Bill tries to find the missing teen and uncover what it is that has led him so far from home. Their search takes them to Gary's family in a small town in New Jersey, where they discover that one of Gary's classmates was murdered. Bill and Lydia delve into the crime-only to find it eerily similar to a decades-old murder-suicide...

Review:

"OK, Listen up: this woman can write! With BLOOD TIES, S.J. Rozan paints with the full pallete of the human heart, using depth, detail and nuance of character that I haven't see since Raymond Chandler. Rozan delivers a wonderful mystery that is also a full-bodied novel about the pressures we place on ourselves and our loved ones..." ( Robert Crais)

"Featuring two of my favourite characters in crime fiction, Bill Smith and Lydia Chin, BLOOD TIES is a chilling and compelling look at the dark roots of violence among American teens. It's the most intense and topical work from one of the finest crime writers today. This is a writer - and a story - not to miss." ( Linda Fairstein)

"American crime writing's best-kept secret" ( Val McDermid)

"a neat plot, interesting social commentary and compelling writing...Don't miss." ( Literary Review)
