Sarah Broadhurst's view...

One of our Great Reads you may have missed in 2011.

One of my favourite authors returns to his classic mystery style where the protagonist’s comfortable life is severely disrupted by his past catching up with him. In this case the Serb-Croat war is at the centre of a thriller which twists and turns in true Goddard fashion. He really is a superb master of suspense.

The Lovereading view...

The breathtaking new race-against-the-clock thriller from the master of the triple cross and the author that other crime writers believe is the crime writers' crime writer. Utterly and completely absorbing, the plot will have you thinking numerous wrong turns as you gallop through this excellent thriller. What's for sure is that you won't want to put it down until it's finished.

If you like Robert Goddard you might also like to read books by Hilary Bonner, P J Tracy and William Boyd.

Synopsis

Blood Count by Robert Goddard

Thirteen years ago, surgeon Edward Hammond performed a life-saving operation on Serbian gangster Dragan Gazi. Now Gazi is standing trial for war crimes at the international court in The Hague. After Hammond saved his life, Gazi's men went on to slaughter thousands in the Balkan civil wars. Now, in exchange for keeping Hammond's dirty little secret, Gazi's family want a small favour: to find the man who knows what happened to Gazi's money. But Italian financier Marco Piravani doesn't want to be found. And no sooner has Hammond tracked him down than he disappears again. Hammond has no choice but to set off across Europe in pursuit. In Blood Count, every action has a consequence and every question must have an answer. Only then might Hammond be able to lay the past to rest...
