Rated 5 out of 5 by from Incredible Read! I could not put this novel down - it was perfectly paced with many twists I did not see coming. After reading tons of suspense and mystery novels, I can usually guess the end - but this novel kept me guessing. Well worth a read!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Couldn't Stop Listening Just two month post transplant and Terry McCaleb is recovering on his boat which is moored in the Los Angeles Harbor. Retired from his job with the FBI, Terry is under doctor's orders to do nothing other than rest and recover. He finds this a reasonable task until the day a women comes to his boat pleading that he investigate the murder of her only sister. When presented with the intimate details, Terry finds it hard to resist. This is one of those stories that grabs onto the reader early on, and won't let go until the last line is read or listened too in my case. To me, The murder of Gloria seemed like a case of being in the wrong place at the wrong time, it would never have occurred to me to think anything else. McCaleb is one of those people who has a different sense of events and possibilities. As an investigator, he comes across to the reader as very believable. I loved this book. Since I was listening to the audio version, I kept finding excuses to go out in my car and drive around, run errand and pick up the kids. Am looking forward to listening to more of Michael Connelly's works. The audiobook I listened to was an unabridged version by Brilliance Audio. It was superbly read by Dick Hill (who I would listen to again at any time). Length is 13 hours.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from WOW!!! Great and easy read. I read it in a day and a half. This book keeps you guessing. Fanatasic! I have read a few books by the same other author and this is by far the best yet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Couldn't Put It Down... Blood Work is the best book I've read in ages. I absolutely couldn't stand to put it down for one second. The narrative is excellent, and the plot drags you in with ease. A great suspense!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from V.P. of Information Systems (www.skpowers.com) We live in desperate times, we live in dangerous times... and Michael Connelly narrates that sentiment clearly in his latest edgy thriller, BLOOD WORK. Casting a new hero, Terry McCaleb, against the returning enemy, "The Poet" is a work of art. If you have not read any of Connelly's work, start with BLOOD WORK - you will not be disappointed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Blood Work This is the best book I have read in about 5 years. Connelly constantly surprises you and ties you into the characters in an intensely emotional way. You think you know what is going on, and suddenly you realize you've missed everything and it's all twisted. To me that's the highest compliment to an author - to create involving characters, to make you care about them and then to devastate you with their circumstances. And this is a real winner.
