MT Review: Blood Ties: A Novel

I've finished "Blood Ties" by Nicholas Guild.

Product Description

Homicide detective Ellen Ridley of the SFPD is tracking a serial killer terrorizing young women in the San Francisco Bay Area. Ridley is sure she's cornered her most likely suspect: Stephen Tregear, a hacker and code breaker who works for U.S. Naval Intelligence. But Tregear is not the killer - he's the killer's son.

Ridley and Tregear team up to look for Tregear's father, Walter, in an elaborate game of murderous cat and mouse. As the body count rises, Ridley must race against the clock to stop Walter before he kills any more women -- and Tregear must finally confront the father who has been trying to kill him for twenty years. Blood Ties is an elegant and frightening thriller from Nicholas Guild.

My Review:

I highly recommend this book if you enjoy a fast-paced suspenseful read with characters you really connect with and are likeable well except for the villain and a really sick and demented killer.

I really felt bad for Stephen knowing that his dad killed his mom and woman when he was 12 years old.  I would have run away too and how I truly felt how scared he is and the constant look out for his dad knowing he would kill him at any opportunity.

Man Ellen's mom is a real piece of work and she isn't likeable at all!


Thanks TOR/Forge Books for sending me this book to review, greatly appreciated!
