    Michael Connelly has been attracting fans by the droves with his hard-boiled, edgy thrillers. A former crime reporter for the Los Angeles Times, Connelly combines a poet's ear for language with a deep understanding of the criminal mind to create dark, dramatic stories that raise the thriller genre to a new level.

    In Blood Work, Connelly introduces a new character, Terry McCaleb, who was a top man at the FBI until a heart ailment forced his early retirement. Now he lives a quiet life, nursing his new heart and restoring the boat on which he lives in Los Angeles Harbor. Although he isn't looking for any excitement, when Graciela Rivers asks him to investigate her sister Gloria's death, her story hooks him immediately: the new heart beating in McCaleb's chest is Gloria's.

    As McCaleb investigates the evidence in the case, the suspected randomness of the crime gives way to an unsettling suspicion of a twisted intelligence behind the murder. Soon McCaleb finds himself on the trail of a killer more horrifying than anything he ever encountered before. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

    Smart thriller, September 1, 2003 Reviewer: piemeister from Grapevine, Texas United States This was my first Connelly novel and I wasn't disappointed. I noticed that there was a movie but decided to read the book first. The plot is clever and the book well written. It's quite hard to put down after the first couple of pages. I like to keep an open mind when reading a book, perhaps you can say an emtpy mind, but I figured out where the story was going almost immediately. Still, I couldn't put it down and you won't be able to either. Michael Connelly is definitely an author I will read more off.
