Blood Work

Michael Connelly: Blood Work (UK 2009)

From the Publisher:
'Blood Work' - that's what Terry McCaleb used to call his job at the FBI. Eight weeks ago he was a dead man, but now someone else's heart is keeping him alive. Then a newspaper report of his brush with death brings him an unwanted visitor. Graciela Rivers reveals to McCaleb that the anonymous donor of his heart was her murdered sister, and that the police investigation into the case is going nowhere. McCaleb feels he has no choice but to take on the investigation.

Nothing about the seemingly random killing makes sense. McCaleb realises that someone is watching his every move - someone who has killed before and will kill again...

Blood Work

Michael Connelly: Blood Work (USA 2002)

From the Publisher:
Thanks to a heart transplant, former FBI agent Terrell McCaleb is enjoying a quiet retirement, renovating the fishing boat he lives on in Los Angeles Harbor. But McCaleb's calm seas turn choppy when a story in the "What Happened To?" column of the LA Times brings him face-to-face with the sister of the woman whose heart now beats in his chest. From her, McCaleb learns a terrible truth: that the donor of his heart was not killed in an accident, as he'd been told, but was murdered.

Wracked with guilt over the fact that he's alive because another human being was killed, McCaleb embarks on a private investigation of his donor's murder - a crime as horrific as anything he ever encountered as a serial killer investigator for the FBI.

Michael Connelly: Blood Work. Warner Books, ISBN: 0446690449 (July, 2002), 480 p., $14.95.

Blood Work

Michael Connelly: Blood Work (USA 1998)

From the Publisher:
Sometimes it takes fresh blood to solve old killings.
After the stunning bestsellers The Poet and Trunk Music, Michael Connelly's readers have come to expect thrillers with almost unbearable drama and unforgettable characters. In Blood Work, Connelly surpasses even his own high standards.

"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. His goal is simple: to finish restoring the fishing boat he lives on in Los Angeles Harbor and return to his hometown on Catalina Island.

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 judgment, McCaleb agrees to take up the case. As he sifts through the evidence, it seems at first like a random crime. But then he notices details that don't make sense-until he looks at the case from a radically unsettling point of view. 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.

Written with a poet's eye and a nearly criminal cunning, Blood Work is thriller writing at its absolute best.

Michael Connelly: Blood Work. Warner Books, ISBN: 0446602620 (October, 1998), 393 p., $7.99.
