Claire's Review 5 of 5 StarsA line of Blood tells the story of Alex, who along with his son Max, find their neighbour dead in his bathtub by what looks like a suicide. However the police have other ideas and that's where secrets and lies start unravelling.
I really enjoyed this book! It kept me hooked the entire way through, even though I found the story predictable I still wanted to find out the hows and whys.
This is such a well written book, with a very thought out storyline and which didn't just revolve the main story but also bought other outside relationships into play.
I would definitely recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a good thriller.
