Blood Lines by Mel Odom is the third book in the NCIS series about a group of men and women who investigate military, especially Naval crimes. In this book, Shelton McHenry is trying to arrest a young man, Bobby Lee Gant, who carjacked a Marine and his wife leaving the Marine permanently disabled, when Bobby Lee goes a little crazy, murdering one man and taking a woman hostage. Shel does the only thing possible: kill Bobby Lee to rescue the woman. But that sets up a series of terrifying events as Bobby Lee's father, Victor, sets out to kill the man who killed his son. Victor, a Vietnam Vet, has a long history of violence and crime, and he also has some mysterious ties to Shel's father, Tyrel, that may bring down the entire investigation. This testosterone fueled novel is full of shoot-outs, fist fights, and thrills, mixed with father-son misunderstandings and quiet faith. Tyrel has spent his entire life running from his past, which didn't leave him much opportunity to be a good father. Odom keeps the story zipping along with a plot filled with twists and turns and well-written action. This is sure to please fans of Tom Clancy or other military fic fans.
