Blood Passage is an exciting murder mystery that will keep you turning the pages. I love reading murder mysteries and police procedurals. Full of exciting characters, good and bad. The story is about the re-investigation into the murder of a young man, Martin Liu, which happened 4 years previous in the story. The case is re opened when a little boy starts saying strange things from a person in his previous life. The police are of course skeptical, especially hard nosed Dectective Stainer who with Homicide Dectective Hank Donaghue decide to investigate it anyway. As they get further involved in the investigation they are embroiled in the ways of the Triad. This is a story entwining two cultures, good and bad people, and the law. I especially loved the character of Karen Stainer, a no nonsense tough woman who is not afraid to get nose to nose with the criminal element, but does have a soft side to her. A very tense edge of your seat type of page turner that will keep you guessing to the very end. Whether you believe in reincarnation or not, this book will certainly make you go hmmm at the end. Michael J. McCann is also the author of The Ghost Man, a supernatural thriller. His new book of the Donaghue and Stainer Crime Novel Series, Marcie's Murder, which is scheduled for publication in Spring 2012.
I enjoyed this book and highly recommend it.

Blood Passage (The Donaghue and Stainer Crime Novel series) by Michael McCann is a well written book that will keep you riveted to the pages throughout the complete novel. He weaves a story of suspense and intrigue that winds between 2 cultures and the conflict and tension between what is right and what is the law creates an awesome story. Donaghue & Stainer make for an unusual team but Mr. McCann has found a way to use their differences, to create not only tension between them but compliment their work styles.

I am not a crime reader, (I prefer the Bourne Identity type of books) and picked this book up because of a friends recommendation. I really liked it and once started finished it in less than 2 days. I just couldn't put it down and can't wait for the next book in the series to come out.

If you are looking for a well written book that follows an intriguing process of events then this is a must read book. Excellent as a stocking stuffer or a gift for that special reader under the tree.

MARK'S REVIEW

Got an hour? Because that's how long it'll take to describe all the great things about this book. But I'll try to keep it to a more appropriate length. To summarize, it's a mix between episodes of Law & Order, Cold Case and a dash of X-Files thrown in, creating a very unique appeal. To be fair, I haven't read as many book in general as Bec and certainly not as many self-published books, but based upon her reviews (and Sharon's) and the few I've been either able to read or at least browse through, Blood Passage is one of the best self-published books I think I will ever come acorss. I've read highly acclaimed, traditionally published books that wouldn't stand up to this one in quality and would merely equal its entertainment value.

This book's got everything: a great main plot, interesting and not overwhelming subplots, believeable characters, true-to-life dialogue, and a satisfying ending that leaves you with just enough unanswered questions (it is a crime novel, after all), not to mention an appropriate level of researched description that would satisfy various kinds of readers. I'm the kind of person that gets bogged down with lots of description, especially seemingly unimportant details that go on and on. But with Blood Passage if I felt a portion was filler detail, unimportant to the rest of the story, I could quickly skim thorough it and get back to the action. If you're the kind of person who likes detail, this book's got it in measured amounts.

I don't feel I've done my job unless I find something about a book that could be improved. Usually it isn't that hard.

Format: Paperback
A murder scene looks like a drug deal gone wrong. It's worked until there doesn't seem to be any more evidence then turned over to CCU. Four years later, the case seems to be fully active again. New information has been brought to light that might help solve the murder. Donaghue and Stainer are working the case as if it's new again. Asking questions, meeting people from the past and taking in the new information. It seems Martin Liu, the victim, is reincarnated in the body and mind of three and a half year old Taylor Chan. It might seem random, but Taylor is Liu's cousin's child. He knows to much to be making it up. There are things that don't match up and many more things that do. At first they think it's all bunk, until they start learning Taylor was dead on in his statements. This might even lead to solving the murder.

Not your typical police drama with the inclusion of reincarnation. Many crime drama writers wouldn't have taken this turn, but you know what, it works. It makes the story seem more like something that could actually happen. Especially once you read what the child knows. Action filled and worthy of it's own television show, this book is perfect for those looking for something a little different. I thoroughly enjoyed this book.

I didn't find anything wrong. It covered all the bases.

I gave this one a 5 out of 5 books because I didn't see the reincarnation coming and it was easy to accept when it did.
