Blood tells: a thriller
At the very peak of the summer tourist season, the peaceful routine of a beautiful seaside community in North Carolina is shattered by the brutal murder of a vacationing family. Police lieutenant Devon Walker, a relative new-comer to the Outer Banks - a refugee from the gritty, inner-city streets and police department of Jersey City, New Jersey, hundreds of miles and worlds away from the scenic North Carolina coast - is the chief investigator in charge of finding the murderer. Viewed with suspicion by the native Bankers who hold the reins of power, and who want instant arrests, Walker must struggle to galvanize his investigation while fending off charges of incompetence. Despite the best efforts of Walker and his two assistants, Sgt. Tony Camps, a black ex-football player, and Cpl. Dee Onslow, a no-nonsense female deputy, the trail goes cold. Getting needed help by calling in an old favor from an ex-colleague who is now an FBI special agent in the Northeast, Walker learns of two equally vicious and peculiarly similar murders that occurred in other parts of the country. Through painstaking police work, Camps and Onslow piece together the disparate bits of information and discover that the Outer Banks are a common link, albeit tenuous, between the victims. Former street cop Walker comes to understand that while the tideland marshes and beaches possess a serene beauty, they also conceal lethal dangers for the unwary - reflections ultimately providing him with critical insights into the mind of the killer he pursues.
