Product Description:

FBI Agent Terry McCaleb comes out of retirement to investigate the hit and run of the woman that gave him a new heart, saving his life. With the help of the victim's sister he discovers that her death is not just an accident, but a calculated murder to get the organs of her rare blood group. Under pressure from the LAPD detectives, McCaleb becomes a suspect himself. He is convinced, though, that the murderer was hired by a 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 apparent randomness of the crime gives way to the unsettling suspicion of a twisted intelligence behind the murder. Soon McCaleb finds himself on the trail of a killer more horrifying than any he ever encountered before.
