Back Cover / Inside Flap:"When Graciella Rivers steps onto his boat, ex-FBI agent Terrell McCaleb has no idea he's about to come out of retirement. He's recuperating from a heart transplant and avoiding anything stressful. But when Graciella tells him the way her sister Gloria was murdered, it leaves Terry no choice. Now the man with the new heart vows to take down a predator without a soul. For Gloria's killer shatters every rule that McCaleb ever learned in his years with the Bureau - as McCaleb gets no more second chances at life...and just one shot at the truth."


Review:Michael Connelly is another author I was introduced to when I combined my library with my husband's. I'd heard of him - he's a NY Times bestselling author, of course - but never ventured into his work.

Don't let this title fool you - this isn't a grim and gory tale. Instead, it's a cunningly crafted story of what blood actually means, and the crazy path it can run. Terry is set up as a grouchy but somewhat loveable hero, and the reader is kept on the edge of her seat in hoping that all comes out right for this man who has endured so much. Just when you think the end has come - literally - there's another chapter that will just blow you away - again, literally! Good read - grab a copy today!

If you have read or are planning to read this book, please make sure to stop back by and leave me a comment to let me know your own thoughts!

From my library to yours,
