From Publishers Weekly
Drawing on his experience as a journalist and crime writer, Rick Mofina (Cold Fear) brings a gritty realism to the printed page in Blood of Others, his third thriller featuring hard-hitting newspaper journalist Tom Reed and homicide detective Walt Sydowski. The plot centers around their pursuit of an obsessed, dying man who murders shy, solitary women targeted via internet chat rooms. The murders shake up San Francisco, but when Sydowski's methods prove too old school to capture the conscientious criminal, Ben Wyatt, a disgraced detective and computer specialist, steps up to the plate. A subplot involving a romance between Olivia, a woman who fits the killer's profile, and Ben adds a touch of warmth to this chilling read, and Mofina's flawed but sympathetic characters draw readers into the action.
