This review was written for LibraryThing Early Reviewers.
Nice, fast-paced thriller novel.

A serial killer is murdering seemingly random people - the police can discover no connection between the murders. When they finally catch the killer, he makes them an offer: if they will allow him to walk free, he will help them to catch the real criminal: the man who has hired him to murder these people. When they embark on their quest to find out why the victims are being killed and who is ordering it, they uncover a conspiracy that involves very highly placed officials.

I really enjoyed this novel. It's fast paced and keeps you guessing. The characters are interesting and worked out quite well, and though there is some violence it is not a simple 'blood-and-gore' type of thriller.
The background story is interesting and it keeps you reading, uncovering tiny bits and pieces as the story progresses. I very much liked the descriptions of how the detectives work on the case - even the boring parts of the work that aren't very glamorous and are often skipped in novels.

Overall a very nice read - I've read some other work by Patrick Freivald and will definitely keep an eye on him! ( )

this is a great action-packed thriller that any fan of this genre should enjoy. A serial killer and FBI agent are brought together in the most interesting of ways: the serial killer taunts the FBI agent by leaving clues at each kill, then suddenly finds himself in need of the FBI's help in order to find out who has put out a contract on his father. As it turns their cases might just be related so they come to a mutual agreement to work together. As one would expect, though, each has their own secret agenda and neither trusts the other completely.

This is a fast-paced novella, the characters are believable and the book contains enough plot twists to keep you guessing, with mysteries revealed even as others are solved. ( )

I received Blood List from Library Thing Early Reviewers.
Blood List is about serial killer Paul Renner who likes to toy with the FBI. Until he discovers a contract on his father's life, and ends up needing the FBI's help.

I thought Blood List was an action packed thriller! With every page turn, the plot would twist. You had no idea what would happen next. The characters of Paul Renner and special FBI agent Gene Palomini were interesting and believable. ( )

Received as ER. This is an above average quality thriller.
The FBI are trying to catch a hired assassin Paul Renner. He needs to work with them once his own father makes the kill list. It's fast-paced and carries you through. Recommended. ( )

I thought the characters were decently written and interesting. The plot was fast paced enough to keep things moving and keep me turning pages. I enjoyed the story and would definitely read more by this author. ( )
