Kelly Garret, Bloodletter's primary protagonist, is a criminalist living and working in the town of Nakeita. She seems to have it all= a great job, awesome friends, a loving boyfriend... until she realizes that her current case is starting to hit a little too close to home.

There is a serial killer out there that is using the Ten Commandments as an excuse to brutally murder those who don't uphold them, or at least the version of them that the killer has created. Kelly and her team are forced to go into overdrive in search of this sadistic killer, all the while Kelly is battling flashbacks from her childhood. What really happened to her as a child? Did her mother really die in a car accident? What about this case is making her relive what was once forgotten?

Bloodletter is a chilling murder mystery that has you guessing until the very end. Written in third person, there were perhaps too many characters to keep up with in the beginning, but they eventually evened out towards the middle of the novel. There is a distinct beginning, middle and end however, at times, I didn't feel that the plot flowed properly; it was a slippery slope, balancing Kelly's flashbacks, random comments from her father (that I later realized weren't so random after all), and the serial murder case that she and her co-workers were trying to solve.

If your're in the mood for a good thriller, with a big creep factor added in, then Angel Haze's Bloodletter is the novel for you! The author did a marvelous job of creating a unique story, with great characters and an ending that definitely through me for a loop!
