NURSE BLOOD by Rebecca Besser is the author's best work, and I don't say that lightly. She's written all kinds of stories ranging from zombie horror to science fiction. This time, Besser has combined suspense, horror and drama to create one hell of a crime thriller!
The story is told through multiple POVs, but mainly alternates between the FBI investigating dozens of missing person cases and a group of organ harvesters. Sonya has been with the group since day one, baiting and kidnapping victims, while Agent David is finally making headway in his twin brother's case. (Having the brothers be identical twins is a great detail!) Sonya's group are going after an entire family this time, and David is successfully connecting the puzzle pieces.
The dynamics of the harvesting group is better than any soap opera, with deadlier consequences when in-fighting begins. David's personal connection to the investigation reminds readers of how lives are destroyed, not saved, as Sonya often rationalizes. The ending is like a sudden drop after several wicked curves, and will likely have readers screaming long-after the ride is over.
I can't wait for the sequel!!
