in her blood



Alexandra McCormick’s great-grandmother was a brutal serial killer in the early 1900’s. With her mother currently serving time in prison for murdering Alexandra’s stepfather, Alexandra decides to do her college research paper on whether or not the tendency to commit murder or other violent crimes may be passed on genetically.

Her research takes her to Savannah, Georgia, a city built upon its dead. There, she meets Chad Greenway, whose ancestor is Alice Riley, the first woman hanged in the state of Georgia. Alice was hanged for killing her abusive master. As a freelance writer, Chad agrees to help Alexandra with her research provided he can write a story about her quest. Soon it seems everyone Alexandra meets winds up murdered.



Next time you are looking for a good psychological thriller, definitely give this one a try. Alex is a woman with a troubled past but an interesting thesis idea – is there a “killer” gene? Chad is a descendent of a serial killer, but does he believe in her theory? Then there is Dumpster Dave – a psychologist that chooses to live in a shelter to help those in need.

The plot twists and turns and when I thought maybe I knew who was killing the people Alex met while in Savannah, a twist in the story would happen and I would suspect someone else. I think I suspected several of the characters at different times in the story…but not once did I get it right.

Well worth the read!   We give it 5 paws up
