The first thing that catches PI Lee Crowe’s eye is the Rolls Royce. The second is the body of a beautiful young woman lying dead on the crushed roof. Neither belongs in this neighbourhood.
The woman is Claire Gravesend – the daughter of one of the richest, most powerful women in California. She doesn’t believe what the police are saying – that Claire killed herself – and hires Crowe to investigate.
Questions start to pile up as soon as he starts to dig. Strange scars – old marks which her mother won’t explain – are found on Claire’s body. Then Crowe is brutally attacked whist searching her Boston apartment and barely escapes with his life.
And when he visits Claire’s secret pied-a-terre Crowe uncovers the biggest secret of all: sleeping in an upstairs room he finds Claire. Alive.
An enthralling blend of Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein, Michael Crichton and Mickey Spillane – Blood Relations is a perfect pacy read.
