The latest crime-thriller from April Henry, Blood Will Tell will leave her fans delighted by its twists and turns.
When a woman’s body is found in a Portland park, suspicion falls on an awkward kid who lives only a hundred feet away, a teen who collects knives, loves first-person shooter video games, and obsessively doodles violent scenes in his school notebooks. Nick Walker goes from being a member of Portland’s Search and Rescue team to the prime suspect in a murder, his very interest in SAR seen as proof of his fascination with violence. How is this even possible? And can Alexis and Ruby find a way to help clear Nick’s name before it’s too late?
April Henry weaves another page-turning, high stakes mystery in Book 2 of the Point Last Seen series.
Based on the real teen volunteers in Portland, Oregon’s Multnomah County Search and Rescue (SAR), Henry’s fictional version is injected with loads of real-life inspiration. Part of the appeal reading Blood Will Tell is finding the nuggets of fact within the fictional story.
Henry also has a knack for keeping readers on their toes, and she does so expertly within the pages of Blood Will Tell, which sees the return of her young search & rescue volunteers first introduced in The Body in the Woods. With the second book in her Point Last Seen series, we get to learn more about Nick, Alexis, and Ruby — as they work together to solve the crime, clear Nick’s name, and become stronger friends.
And of course, Blood Will Tell is filled with mystery, tension, and high-stakes — with a killer on the loose, and one of the teen’s falsely accused of the brutal crime.
Blood Will Tell hits store shelves on June 16th.
