Blood Works

Just finished reading Blood Work by Michael Connelly; translated to Swedish (“Blodspår”). This is something I usually try to avoid. When I can, I try to get my hands on the original-language edition (well, as long as it’s in a language I read that is).

It’s a good read; a nice plot that is not too easy to see through at first glance. (The translation is good too.)

The book is “quite old” (from the late 90’s), but I must have missed it somehow. I have also missed that they made a movie out of it (“Blood Works”, 2002), starring Clint Eastwood (!). So now I’ll have to try to get my hands on that somehow 🙂

Here’s the synopsis from Amazon:

“‘Blood Work’ – that’s what Terry McCaleb used to call his job at the FBI. Eight weeks ago he was a dead man, but now someone else’s heart is keeping him alive. Then a newspaper report of his brush with death brings him an unwanted visitor. Graciela Rivers reveals to McCaleb that the anonymous donor of his heart was her murdered sister. Knowing that he lives because of a cold-blooded killing, McCaleb takes the moribund investigation on. Nothing about the seemingly random killing makes sense but McCaleb is a tenacious man and little by little he realises that someone is watching his every move – someone who has killed before and will kill again…”
