This book is the third in the Blood series (previous books Blood Dreams and Blood Sins)featuring the Bishop Crime Unit. I loved this book. I especially liked Hollis Templeton, the special agent who is the star of this book. I enjoyed the bond she experienced with male agent, Reese DeMarco and the unexpected nature of their connection. This book continues the Unit's search for a psychic serial killer that is killing people in several southern states. What made this book so interesting was that the crimes were all tied in to previous crimes in numerous past novels of Kay Hooper. That raised the stakes for the crime unit since they knew that they were dealing with a diabolical killer who had studied their past cases. This book was GREAT. I read it in one day.
Third in the Blood series, another in the Bishop Crime Unit. I thoroughly enjoyed this book, just like all the others. Kay Hooper does a good job of developing the characters, plot and the bad guys. She keeps you guessing till the end and always throws in a little extra unexpected bit at the end. She is one of my favorite authors and can always be relied upon to provide a great read.
