    I'm a big NCIS fan and this book kept it going. A lot of fun. I hope that there is a 4th in the series.

    A good read

    I bought this book for something different to read.
    Blood Lines is a very good read and hard to put down. The graphic parts aren't too graphic and the religion isnt over the top either. It has a nice balance.

    Blood Lines by Mel Odom

    This book is marketed as a Christian novel. However, there was not much in the book in regards to ¿Christian¿ conversations. It is true that Shel¿s brother was a preacher, but he did not preach much. A few people were quoted to have prayed. However, once again, those prayers were not included in the book¿s writing. As a woman, I was disappointed religion was not mentioned more.<BR/><BR/>The main characters of the book are NCIS members. One of the teams members is Shel who is a Marine. While trying to make an arrest, things go wrong. A man is killed whose family vows to get back at Shel.<BR/><BR/>This was a military thriller with twists and turns. This book captures the reader from page one until the ending. It does have quite a bit of violence. But if you are looking for an adventure book for the main your life¿this is the one.

    Action!

    Although this is the third book in the series, the others don't have to be read in order to understand this one. It's a stand-alone book. From page one, I did not want to put this military thriller down. If it were made into a movie, my husband would salivate to see it as soon as it was released; it's so full of action.<BR/><BR/>Written in omniscient voice, the reader easily grasps the forward motion of the story from several different character's viewpoints. <BR/><BR/>There's a theme of male family love. Shel, the tough Marine, refuses to get in touch with his father on Father's Day, yet we notice that he can't stop thinking of "Daddy." Victor, the evil criminal, loves his son enough to die for him. Don, the gentle preacher, is strong enough to withstand verbal abuse from his father, yet takes a firm stand and tells his father some hurtful things when pushed too far.<BR/><BR/>Twists and turns make for an interesting ending. Even though I hate blood and fighting, this is a book I liked. A good bit of violence is included.

    This is an action-packed NCIS thriller

    During a fugitive recovery op in Charlotte, Naval Criminal Investigative Service (NCIS) Agent Marine Gunnery Sargent Shelton ¿Shel¿ McHenry is shot trying to make the arrest while the alleged criminal Bobby Lee Gant is killed. However, there are consequences to his use of deadly force. The father of the deceased, three tours of Viet Nam ground pounder veteran Victor Gant, leader of the violent weapons and meth peddling Purple Dragons bike gang, vows the grunt who murdered his son will pay in blood. Ironically Victor served with Shel¿s dad decades ago in Vietnam. The FBI who is investigating Victor sees an opportunity by using Shel and his family as bait.<BR/><BR/>NCIS Commander Will Coburn believes strongly in taking care of your team. He and the unit have Shel¿s back when attacks occur. They also want to protect Shel¿s family, an easier target to bring down his morale. As death stalks Shel, he goes back to the day he lost faith in God; the day he buried his beloved mother. He prays for the first time since that day, but not for him; he asks God to protect his family back in Texas while also wondering if he believes in the Lord or is this foxhole mentality.<BR/><BR/>This is an action-packed NCIS thriller that goes a bit over the top of Camp Lejeune, but no one will care as the fast-paced story line grips readers from the opening basketball game through the revealing of Texas secrets to the final confrontation. The key cast is fully developed especially Shel who turns to God and even pleads with his daddy to try it. Fans will appreciate Mel Odom¿s exhilarating inspirational tale.<BR/><BR/>Harriet Klausner
