Publisher's Summary

Detective Roger Colby thought he ended serial killer Morgan Laird's murderous spree 28 years ago when Laird was sentenced to spend the rest of his life in prison. But Colby soon finds out that nothing is certain in today's ever-changing society. The wheelchair-bound criminal has been released from prison and granted parole. But is it coincidence that a new series of homicides has suddenly begun, identically mirroring Laird's brutal series of murders from the past?

As Colby reluctantly joins a federal task force investigating these new crimes, he begins to uncover a new and sinister plot so unthinkable that it virtually defies belief. When Morgan Laird's DNA is recovered from the scene of one of the recent murders, Colby realizes that the unthinkable has suddenly become reality. Shunned by the task force and without support, Colby knows he must trace his new blood tail to its source and bring these new and brutal crimes to a stop, regardless of the consequences.

Save your credits....

The book has an interesting premise, but the police are written more like they are back in 80's than in current day. Police procedures are loosely written, and there were a lot of shake my head/roll my eyes moments. The author has promise, but I'd skip this book.

Amazing!

I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review. Oh yeah, now that is what I am talking about. A thriller! I love thrillers! This is right up my alley and wow did it please. Serial killers and some creepy scientist experiments. Is this a series? It should be a series because take my money! The narrator was spot-on for this book. Such a great voice for this type of book. I loved his intonation and his expression of the characters. Very impressive!

Very suspenseful

There's a science fiction element to this thriller that makes it unrealistic, but once that's accepted, the story is plausible and very exciting. The characters are well developed and James Romick brings this out with his excellent narration. The end is a bit abrupt, leaving the outcome of the story unfinished, but it's not a cliffhanger.

Action packed thriller

Detective Colby is hunting for a copycat serial killer that has started ever since the original killer was released on parole. A good action packed detective thriller. The timeline moves from the past where the original killer was hunted, to the present where the same type of murders are occurring. I dont really like knowing who the killer is upfront, i like to try and figure it out while listening to the story and getting a "surprise" at the climax. The way the book was written was good in the sense that even though you knew who it was, it didnt take away from the suspense and excitement thereof. Very clever writing. The narrator was brilliant. He has this awesome deep male voice perfect for a thriller which added good emotions to the performance. He had good intonation and i really enjoyed listening to him. Note: This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this objective review voluntarily.

Suspenseful and gritty

Blood Trails is a tremendous story...dark, gory and imaginative. Michael Black really captures the mind of a psychotic killer. James Romick was the perfect narrator for this. I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.
