Winner of the Best Novel at the Anthony Awards 1999 and the Macavity Awards 1999.
Another stand alone novel, this is one of Connelly’s best. Terry McCaleb is a retired FBI profiler who has had a recent heart transplant. When the donor’s sister turns up and informs him that her brother was the victim of a serial killer, McCaleb feels compelled to help her track down the killer. Lots of details and clues to get your teeth stuck in to and plenty of twists to keep you guessing to the very end.
'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. Knowing that he lives because of a cold-blooded killing, McCaleb feels he has no choice but to take on the investigation.
Nothing about the seemingly random killing makes sense but McCaleb is a tenacious man and little by little he realises that someone is watching his every move - someone who has killed before and will kill again...
