I enjoyed this book and highly recommend it.
Blood Passage isn't the average crime novel because there is a bit of the 'unknown' in the plot. Four years previous to the beginning of the book, a rather straight-laced Asian fellow in his twenties was murdered. Now a three-year-old boy has convinced a university researcher that he was the murdered Asian man, well... before.
Lieutenant Hank Donaghue and snappy, sassy Detective Karen Stainer are investigating a related attack, then the cold case of Martin Liu, the young man murdered four years ago and trying to balance the information from the three-year-old as the bodies pile up.
The social hierarchies of Asian communities and the police force are examined and explained in comprehensive detail. I actually studied Asian culture and Mandarin for awhile in college (don't ask me anything!!!) and enough research was done and detail used that I didn't laugh and I felt like I had learned a few things.
Blood Passage is entertaining and exciting all the way to the last page. I am glad that I had the opportunity to read it.
Enter the homicide detective team of Donaghue and Stainer. The pair are pulled into a four year old Chinatown murder by odd circumstances. A child psychology researcher has new testimony from the victim--a young boy named Taylor Chan. From there an enticing story unfolds.
Michael J. McCann keeps us turning pages with gritty realism, well-drawn action sequences, and multifaceted characters. His mystery draws us in, twisting and turning its way to unexpected revelations.
Blood Passage is at once a thought-provoking read and thoroughly entertaining. I highly recommend it!
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.
