Some memories live deep in the soul, indelible and dangerous, waiting to be resurrected....Forensic expert "Cat" Ferry is suspended from an FBI task force when the world-class odontologist is inexplicably stricken with panic attacks and blackouts while...more
Blood Memory is totally the most disturbing, most adult, most gut-wrenching experience I've ever put myself through. In the strange tall format paperback I read, it comes to about 800 pages and it NEVER dragged. The choice of a first-person female protagonist was a canny move, it allowed Iles to take the real-life male-lion-ruthlessness to just another...more

I have a few problems with this book! The plot was to say the least full of holes.

The 'dream scene' got very repetitive and was actually boring at the end.
She has just swam across a fa...more
It does cover some very tough content, so be mindful of this. Kat was abused as a child and there's lots on this topic. At times, it's difficult to re...more
Cat Ferry is an interesting character. She is flawed, probably more so than any other character I've ever read about, but I found myself rooting for her to figure it out. Get to the bottom of the murders in New Orleans as well as her own personal drama. It would be the first step to making...more
Blood memory is a blend of the psychological and crime thrillers where the main subject is sexual abuse in children
