About the Author

A former police reporter for the Los Angeles Times, Michael Connellyis the author of seven acclaimed Harry Bosch novels: The Black Echo, The Black Ice, The Concrete Blonde, The Last Coyote, Trunk Music, Angels Flight, and A Darkness More Than Night, as well as The Poet, Blood Work and Void Moon. He lives in Los Angeles.


Blood Work is a detective thriller that seems to exploit the American obsession with the FBI and hunting serial killers. What makes a retired FBI agent and recent heart transplant recipient take up a case against his doctor's orders? A hunt for the killer of the woman who donated his new heart. As an FBI agent, McCaleb's specialty was serial killers. With the help of some of his old contacts,agent McCaleb goes on the trail of his donor's murderer. There are few twists in the tale, and McCaleb hunts his killer methodically, with an eye to detail that one can believe happens in real investigations. Michael Connelly tells the story completely chronologically, with few flashbacks or recapitulation. Although this is a work of fiction, there is a hint of truecrime style in Connelly's writing, and he is no doubt drawing upon his experience as police reporter for the Los Angeles Times. I found Connelly's writing to have a little too much explanatory description for my taste. His clear, linear style does ensure, however, that no reader will miss any detail in the plot or be in any confusion at the novel's end. Jane Watson-Brown is a freelance writer and reviewer.
