In a lot of ways, “Blood Brothers” (unfortunately, not a good title for this) is a lot like a John Grisham novel, only more intricate. You can read the synopsis, so I won’t bother. It is clear Rick Acker did his homework on a lot of subjects, based on his own background in the California DA’s office, and all of the details about the pharmaceutical industry, the rich broads who run society charities, the law, and even the stories about the berserkers, sound authentic.

Recommends it for: everyone It's a real eye opener
Reading this fast legal suspense story, “Blood Brothers” was like being buckled into an intense thrill ride. You know the kind. The extremely amazing roller coaster ride with all its surprises, twists, turns, ups and downs. I just couldn’t put this book down. I kept reminding myself “This is just Fiction” (breathe)!

I know what "berserk" means now... Both Dead Man's Rule and this book deal with just-inside-the-realm-of-possibility biological issues. This book totally fits in with the current climate of doing the best one can to forestall aging and be in the best possible physical condition as long as possible.

There was some gruesomeness, just so you know, but it was handled very well, in my opinion.

As with the first in this series, the characters are well-drawn and deep. Enjoyable read.
LOOOOOOOOVE it, really fast-paced although it took me 3 months to finish it (thanks to exams).

Recommended to all :)
