Ben Dafoe, a young Emergency Room doctor and part-time crime scene consultant for the Seattle P.D., is haunted by addiction. Two years earlier, a cocaine habit claimed the life of his identical twin, Aaron. Or rather, presumably did, because his brother’s body was never found. Now Ben walks onto the scene of a savage stabbing to learn that the victim, Emily Kenmore, is his former fiancée—another loved one who fell prey to addiction. Among the carnage in Emily’s bedroom, a single streak of blood belonging to the killer is caked on the wall. When the DNA from that sample matches Ben’s blood, he becomes the prime suspect.
Convinced that his identical twin is alive and somehow involved in Emily’s death, Ben goes on the run to find Aaron. He escapes north to Vancouver where his brother was last seen alive. Working under an assumed identity at an inner city clinic, Ben frantically hunts for his brother while trying to evade American and Canadian authorities.
Flavored with the science of DNA, BLOOD LIES is a medical thriller and a Fugitive-style suspense novel with a major twist. While Ben struggles to solve a tragic mystery from his past to clear his name in a crime of the present, he learns that sometimes blood lies.
