May 2012 eBook of the Month.

Interestingly for a crime thriller the story only really gets going once the killer is revealed. Then you'll be hooked on the chase to catch them. The author introduces a lot of characters in the first 100 pages but stick with it as the twisty, turny plot unfolds really well after that to a cracker of an ending.

If you like Gregg Olsen you might also like to read books by Karen Rose, Richard Montanari and Andrew Gross.

Synopsis

Closer Than Blood by Gregg Olsen

The face of the killer is as familiar as his own...The first time was easy. No one ever suspected the victim had been murdered. The crime long buried, the dark passions guiding the killer's hand are still alive. But the need for revenge cannot be denied. Only one person can stop the killing. Only one person can identify the killer. Only one person knows the face of death is as close as the face in the mirror...Praise for Gregg Olsen: Olsen is a top-notch writer . (Michael Connelly). Olsen will have you on the edge of your seat . (Lee Child).
