Blood Lines

"Casey is clearly talented and has the makings of a robust and long-lasting series character," the Baltimore Sun

"Think of [Sarah] Armstrong as a blending of Alex Cross and Kay Scarpetta, a tough cookie balancing her new role as a widow. Casey finds sympathy and strength in the female Texas Ranger...," the Tampa Tribune

"Casey has a deft touch with dialogue and character development," the Cleveland Plain Dealer

"The second entry in the Armstrong case file is a strong sequel to Singularity. Both plot lines are clever and carefully scripted. But it’s the evolving back story of Armstrong and her daughter—coping with the death of Armstrong’s husband—that gives this series extra depth and offers the promise of something special." Wes Lukowsky, Booklist

"Verdict: Engrossing and well written," Jo Ann Vicarel, Library Journal

"Enjoyable.... Casey successfully taps into celebrity-obsessed culture," Publishers Weekly.

"[Sarah Armstrong is] an impressive character.... Both mysteries play out nicely against the Texas backdrop, right up to the white-knuckle finale," Sandra Martin, Romantic Times

"The author does a crafty job portraying the demanding young diva, dealing with family issues and tracking killers. BLOOD LINES is a sweet beach read with decent, compassionate characters and several scumbags." Jane Sumner, the Dallas Morning News

"Casey deftly switches between investigations, working in Sarah's personal life as well as the interesting minutia involved in following tenuous leads," P.G. Koch, The Houston Chronicle

"Casey knows how to keep readers turning the pages to get to the stirring conclusion," Glenn Dromgoole, the Abilene Reporter
