Publisher's Summary

Thanks to a heart transplant, former FBI agent Terrell McCaleb is enjoying a quiet retirement, renovating the fishing boat he lives on in Los Angeles Harbor. But McCaleb's calm seas turn choppy when a story in the "What Happened To?" column of the LA Times brings him face-to-face with the sister of the woman whose heart now beats in his chest. From her, McCaleb learns a terrible truth: that the donor of his heart was not killed in an accident, as he'd been told, but was murdered.

Wracked with guilt over the fact that he's alive because another human being was killed, McCaleb embarks on a private investigation of his donor's murder - a crime as horrific as anything he ever encountered as a serial killer investigator for the FBI.

    Any additional comments?

    The plot of this book kept me interested, though character development was somewhat lacking. The toothpick-chewing homicide cop was a cliche. The wrap-up regarding a few seconds that led to the killer was a bit hard to follow until the resolution.

    I have to say that if I were the bereaved sister, I would probably have found this guy's overtures to the kid, along with the insistence that they should stay the night when they barely knew him, a bit creepy.

    Story
    "Waited for it to get more interesting"

    So I waited for this story to get interesting and become a thriller and it just didn't happen....I listened to like 17 out of 47 chapters and finally got tired of waiting. Maybe it becomes a thriller after that...but I got tired of waiting and stopped listening.

    Story
    "worth reading--even after seeing the movie"
    Would you listen to Blood Work again? Why?

    yes, good feeling story, that ends happily, and I fell in love with the main character.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Blood Work?

    love the scenes between him and his neighbor


    Have you listened to any of Dick Hill’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    yes I have, just as good as always!


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    it made me do both, but I don't think these were extreme


    Any additional comments?

    I liked this much better than the movie, because you get more of an "inside" to the story, and I always love Michael Connelly's stories
