A haunting, unsolved murder.
A father seeking redemption.
A son committed to helping him get it.
Did America’s most notorious serial killer, Ted Bundy, kill Janet Leigh Lester?
That’s the conclusion Jack Jordan, John’s father, reached back when he first investigated the case, but now he’s not so sure.
On the same weekend Janet was crowned Miss Valentine at the pageant and Queen at the Sweethearts dance, she disappeared, her car found in an empty field, its interior covered in blood.
The case, known as the Broken Heart Murder, is decades cold now, but a new clock is ticking and John Jordan has one last chance to help his father get it right.
With no jurisdiction and no support and no real hope of solving such an old, cold case, John Jordan is not taking no for an answer.
Once and for all, and before it’s too late, John Jordan is going to find out who’s responsible for the Broken Heart Murder and bring justice to Janet, redemption to his dad, and peace to all those still living under a cloud of suspicion and a shroud of sadness.
Poignant. Touching. Tragic. Cathartic. Blood Work is much more than a baffling mystery, it’s the story of a father and a son and the broken people they’re trying to help mend.

His books are great reading, the plots are intriguing, the characters are rich in description. I always look forward to the next one in series and find that I don't want to stop reading. The character of John is interesting combining being a prison Chaplin and investigator. Given ARC for my voluntary review and my honest opinion.
I RECEIVED A COPY FROM THE AUTHOR IN RETURN FOR AN HONEST REVIEW. THIS WAS AN EXCELLENT JOHN JORDAN NOVEL, I ENJOYED SEEING THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN JORDAN AND HIS FATHER DEVELOP AND THEIR REUNITING WITH JORDAN'S SISTER. THE LENGTH JORDAN WENT TO SOLVE THE MURDER AND THE DANGERS HE WAS WILLING TO FACE TO DO THIS FOR HIS FATHER BROUGHT THE STORY TO LIFE. LISTER MAKES YOU FEEL A PART OF THE STORY. THE DESCRIPTIONS ARE VIVID. THOROUGHLY ENJOYED THIS NOVEL AND WANT TO SEE MORE NEW ONES.
