Blood Ties (Blood Series#3 , Special Crime Unit#12)

by Kay Hooper

Kay Hooper is mostly known for her SCU (Special Crime Unit) books, further divided into Shadows trilogy, Fear trilogy , Evil trilogy and lastly the  Blood trilogy. I came across one of these books 2 years back and read few more randomly. Paranormal thriller + dash of romance + crime ! That makes a really good cocktail for me any day ! 

This one being the last of blood series is a conclusion to the previous two books. I liked the closing of all ends, bringing together all of the SCU team in a single book, the bonds each of them shared with each other .. perfect ! Enough to make me finish this one in 5 straight hours !

Try to start with Blood Dreams (Blood#1) and read all three in order. 
Kay Hooper sure knows her stuff when she writes about mind games and the evil it can hold.

The elite Special Crimes Unit, the FBI’s most controversial and effective team, is a group of mavericks and misfits trained to use their unique psychic abilities to hunt the worst monsters imaginable – human ones. Led by the enigmatic Noah Bishop, the SCU team has earned a reputation for pitting their skills and cunning against killers that other cops fear.
But this time Bishop and his agents face an enemy who has them in his sights, a trained sniper with a deadly plan — and more than one ace up his sleeve.
It starts with an unspeakable series of grisly murders across three states, a trail of blood leading, finally, to the small Tennessee town of Serenade. There, two more brutal murders lure the SCU into what may be the ultimate trap.
One of the first investigators on the scene, Special Agent Hollis Templeton is willing to push herself as hard and as far as necessary. Risking more than her life to help and protect her fellow SCU members, Hollis is coping with psychic abilities that are evolving in unprecedented ways, an attraction to the most complex man she’s ever known, and a serial murder investigation that has just turned very, very personal. In her time with the SCU, Hollis has shown an uncanny ability to survive even the most deadly attacks. But what she doesn’t count on is that this killer intends to destroy the team from within.
The clock is ticking. The body count is rising. And as Bishop and his agents race to uncover the identity of their true enemy, not even their special senses can warn them just how bloody, and how terrifyingly close, the truth will be.
