Tim Diamond—the world’s worst private detective—takes on his most dangerous case yet, and it’s going to be up to his brother to keep him out of trouble. A short story from Guys Read: Thriller, edited by Jon Scieszka.
She couldn't believe he wanted to see her again. He was a priest. He had rejected her for the Church. His telephone call changed everything...
Tom Abimelech, a catholic priest in training disappears from a London hotel. The hotel owner and the police see him as one more thief in the city who leaves in the middle of the night without paying his bill. Claire Yohanus, an investigative reporter, is mystified, this is not the Tom she knew.
When a number of bodies are found brutally murdered in the capital, Claire believes the targets are only men. As she struggles to uncover the truth about Tom's disappearance and overcome the exhaustion assailing her, Claire makes a critical mistake. She trusts people. Some prey on those naive enough to believe. Others betray the trust they should never have been given.
And so begins the discovery of one of history’s darkest secrets. The genetic envelope has been opened. The first of a new breed of serial killers are free to stalk their victims. Tom and Claire have fallen into their trap.
From the evil of Nazi Germany to the fear trodden streets of London, from a race for love and truth that spans Southern and Eastern Europe, from the evil of humanity to its purest expression, Claire must wrestle with her own fears and fight the biggest challenge of her life and that, which faces the whole world.
Blood Relationships, the first book in the series Resurrections, is a masterful story that probes the intensity of human emotions and explores the height and despair of love. It blends science and history into the melting pot of the present and foretells of an all too plausible future.
A chilling, contemporary artistic thriller, full of fascinating historical insights. A gripping plot providing a truly terrifying yet moving account of what the future might hold. For me, the author mixes science with the arts, effortlessly, to brilliant effect – not easy to achieve.
A must for those who continue to believe in humanity, in this crazy world, and are able to think for themselves. Definitely recommended.
