En esta novela Connelly emplea su experiencia como reportero criminal, demostrando una comprension profunda de la mente criminal para crear las historias oscuras que elevan la novela de suspense a un nuevo nivel. Ferry McCaleb trabajaba para el FBI hasta que una grave afeccion del corazon lo obligo a jubilarse antes de tiempo. Ahora lleva una vida tranquila, restaurando el barco en el que vive en el puerto de Los Angeles, hasta que acepta la investigacion de un asesinato, y se da cuenta de que se halla tras el rastro del asesino mas horroroso que haya conocido en toda su carrera. / Michael Connelly has been attracting fans by the droves with his hard-boiled, edgy thrillers. A former crime reporter for the Los Angeles Times, Connelly combines a poet's ear for language with a deep understanding of the criminal mind to create dark, dramatic stories that raise the thriller genre to a new level. In Blood Work, Connelly introduces a new character, Terry McCaleb, who was a top man at the FBI until a heart ailment forced his early retirement. Now he lives a quiet life, nursing his new heart and restoring the boat on which he lives in Los Angeles Harbor. Although he isn't looking for any excitement, when Graciela Rivers asks him to investigate her sister Gloria's death, her story hooks him immediately: the new heart beating in McCaleb's chest is Gloria's. As McCaleb investigates the evidence in the case, the suspected randomness of the crime gives way to an unsettling suspicion of a twisted intelligence behind the murder. Soon McCaleb finds himself on the trail of a killer more horrifying than anything he ever encountered before.
