Synopsis

Out for Blood by S. J. Rozan

'In twelve hours Lydia Chin will be dead...'

Twelve hours to find the girl, or he'll find her corpse... And Bill has to follow the kidnapper's sadistic clues to find her - and find her fast - before the psycho makes good his promise to kill her...

Directed to an abandoned warehouse, Bill finds the corpse of a small Chinese woman dressed like Lydia just as the building is rapidly surrounded by police. Now Bill is on the run from the cops and in the worst trouble of his very troubled life. But that's nothing compared to what Lydia is facing...Please note this novel is called On The Line in the US.

Kirkus

'the action never stops ...A high-velocity entry in a reliable series'
Booklist

Publishers Weekly

'If you long for heart-stopping action and the most original characters outside of P.J. Tracy's Monkeewrench Gang, look no further'
