Thicker Than Blood by Mike Omer

From Washington Post and Amazon Charts bestselling author Mike Omer comes the chilling conclusion to Zoe Bentley’s decades-long nightmare.

A murderer who drinks his victim’s blood? FBI profiler Zoe Bentley and Agent Tatum Gray thought they’d seen it all, but this young woman’s barbaric murder is especially hard to stomach.

They didn’t expect to work this case. But vampirism aside, the murderer’s MO is identical to that of Rod Glover—the serial killer who’s been pursuing Zoe since childhood. Forensics reveals the murder to be his work, but not his alone; desperate to fulfill his sick purpose, he has taken on an equally depraved partner.

Zoe’s own frustration grows after another woman turns up dead and drained—and another goes missing. Time is running out: Zoe knows her own death will be the climax of Glover’s sinister play, which has been unfolding for twenty years. To stop Glover and his vile partner, she’ll need to plunge deep into their motives; but this means drawing ever closer to becoming another casualty of a dark, dark thirst.

I did not read the previous books in this series. But I never thought that I was missing a huge chunk of the story. I felt that this could be read as a standalone.

Zoe Bentley has a history with a serial killer. But when nobody believed her, she didn't know who to trust. Now, Zoe is a great FBI profiler. She has been hunting Glover, a serial killer for a while. She is tenacious, smart, and doesn't take guff from anyone. When she sees similarities to Glover in a murder in Chicago, she can't help but draw parallels, even though not everything matches Glover's MO.

Tatum knows that Zoe has a history with Glover. When a case that resembles Glover's work piques their interest, he follows Zoe to make sure that she stays safe. Tatum has grown to truly care for Zoe and he wants a chance to explore that.

Glover has always worked alone. But somewhere along the line he gathered a following and now has an apprentice. Will the apprentice take over? Will Glover allow the apprentice to truly hunt on their own? Who is Glover's ultimate victim?

This was a fast-paced story that kept you on your toes. I liked the chase and thought that the characters were really well planned out. I wonder if more stories will be coming with these main characters, as I would really enjoy them.

Mike Omer is the author of the Zoe Bentley Mystery Series and the Glenmore Park Mystery Series. In the past, he's been a journalist, a game developer, and the CEO of the company Loadingames. He is married to a woman who diligently forces him to live his dream, and is the father of an angel, a pixie, and a gremlin. He has two voracious hounds that wag their tail quite menacingly at anyone who comes near his home.

Mike loves to write about true-to-life people who are perpetrators or victims of crimes. He also likes writing funny stuff. He mixes these two loves quite passionately into his mystery books.
