by Connelly, Michael

Condition: As New/Fine

New York, NY, U.S.A.: Little, Brown & Company, 1998. First Trade Edition 1st Printing. Hardcover. As New/Fine. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. Signed by author on title page. "Blood Work"--that's what Terrell McCaleb used to call his job at the FBI. Until a heart condition forced him to take early retirement, he headed all investigations of serial murders in the Los Angeles area. Now he is recovering from a heart transplant operation and leads a quiet life. His goal is simple: to finish restoring the fishing boat he lives on in Los Angeles Harbor and return to his hometown in Catalina. But McCaleb's calm seas turn rough when a story in the L.A.Times brings him face-to-face with Graciela Rivers, a darkly intriguing woman who hooks him with the story of her sister's murder. Against doctor's orders and his own better judgment, McCaleb agrees to take up the case. Soon Terry is on the trail of a killer whose crimes are more baffling and horrifying than anything he has ever encountered. It's a mind-bending, breakneck case that leads McCaleb into the darkest place he's ever known, unsure where he even wants to survive his own investigation. Written with a poet's eye and a nearly criminal cunning, BLOOD WORK is thriller writing at its absolute best. BLOOD WORK was short-listed for the Edgar Award as Best Novel of 1999, and was the basis for the recent movie with Clint Eastwood. As new,first edition, first printing, in fine, mylar-protected dust jacket. M10
