Editorial Reviews


Another welcome find is Virginia Anderson, whose hefty BLOOD LIES(Bantam Crime Line) borders on Dick Francis' turf, the world ofthoroughbred breeding and training in Kentucky. It is not surprising tolearn that Anderson, who lives in Dade City, Florida, has herself raised and trained thoroughbreds. The workings of the business, from feedingto syndication, are written out of obvious and engrossing knowledge. Her central figure is a rich kid returning to work around horses againafter having fled his snarling family eight years earlier. An old trackfriend has died in a suspicious fire, leaving a suspiciously healthyinheritance. The murdering is not yet done, and the motivation is ahorse worth millions at stud. Action abounds, and it all centers oncharacters, the boy especially, who have dimension, including depth. Areal winner, this one. -- Charles Champlin, Los Angeles Times,
An experienced horsewoman herself, Anderson knows about the details ofhorse breeding and about the money that is involved in it. . . . Theplot is complex, the character development is detailed and the style iseminently readable. The central figure, Ted, the son who returns to hishome more or less in disgrace, is the sort of hero-villain who makes you wonder just what a modern hero ought to be anyway. The story endsequivocally after a climactic scene that will keep you on the edge ofyour seat. Altogether, I would call Blood Lies an extremely good read,even if a little on the somber side.--St. Petersburg Times
