When Kelton is approached by an old friend with an offer to rescue a beautiful female biologist named Jessica Robbins from federal custody, he accepts without hesitation. They quickly finds themselves on the run from the government, in a race to keep Jessica's latest discovery, a vaccine for the AIDS virus, from getting squashed.
As the chase continues through Disneyland, Death Valley and finally culminating in the tunnels under Las Vegas, Kelton finds himself growing more attached to Jessica with every passing moment, forcing him to face a past that has left him a fractured, wounded man in order to expose a conspiracy that could change the world as we know it.
Combining the fast-moving style of Lee Child's Jack Reacher series with the complex relationships of Dennis Lehane's Kenzie and Gennaro novels, and with a little bit of the classic television show, Have Gun, Will Travel thrown in for good measure, Blood Money is a thinking man's thriller that explores the darkness residing within us all, the demands of the past upon the present, and the consequences of adhering to ones moral code at all costs.

I wasn't sure about this book when I got it, but I quickly got sucked into the story. It was very suspenseful, with several good twists. And the character actually had a lot more depth than I normally see in this genre. I recommend it for anyone that likes fast-paced action with a little mystery thrown in.
Very entertaining. Wasn't expecting the ending either, which says a lot in my opinion.
