Blood Ties by Sigmund Brouwer

Blood Ties was probably as good as a killer thriller can be. Though, I do not believe the hostage scene at the end was necessary at all.
There are two parts of the plot: the past and the present. The past shows how a certain FBI agent arrives on assignment to a small town in Montana during a series of strange events: a train derailment, the murder of an Indian woman, and a group of disgruntled ranch hands causing trouble.
The present goes forward, after all this has happened, except it leaves several parts out that matter for the end. The FBI agent has returned to Montana to marry a girl he met their on his first trip. But the same serial killer that killed the Indian woman is still at large-and stalking his wife.
The book is interesting and holds your attention; the end is just slightly predictable. Who the serial killer is is one of Sigmund's usual surprise villains.
Like I said, it's as good as it could be.
3 stars
