If you're looking to be entertained, or to pass the time in an enjoyable manner, try this book. It's not at the tip top of the line, but it holds its own. The development of the main character was essential to the success of this story, and it is done well. He is charismatic and the reader learns a lot about him by the end of the book, coming to really like and respect him.
I read other reviews before buying this book and was looking out for the out-of-place relationship with the rookie cop that so many mentioned. I, however, found that relationship to be completely necessary to the story. It kept the narrative from constantly revolving around the murder, which would quickly have gotten dull. It added another dimension to the main character, taking away the tough cop facade and showing us the human beneath. I think it was these parts of the story that really caused me to like the guy.
Overall, I liked this book. It was not one that marked me; I probably won't remember it in 2 years. But it kept my mind happily occupied from the time I went in until the time I came out. That's what matters, and I recommend it to anybody who likes a good read.

After reading Blood Work I wanted to give Connelly another go. I think I broke my all time record for completing an unabridged novel with this one. If it were a book I'd say I couldn't put it down. Since it was a cold and dreary weekend, I was satisfied to just sit back and enjoy. I'm still not sure what role the rookie cop, Julia Brasher, had to do with anything except fill. I kept wondering what she had to do with the plot. I guess Connelly figured he needed a cute young woman in there to spice it up. I do recommend this book regardless.
