Part 7 of the Richard Christie Novel series.

							Nadal watches for weeks before he first approaches the boy. No matter what Maggie Brown says, he’s sure Matt is his son, and a boy should know his father. After their first confrontation, Maggie should have run. She should have hidden her child. But she underestimated the man who was once her lover. With self-righteous determination, Nadal goes to her house. He demands to spend time with the boy. When she refuses, he reaches for a knife. The killer vanishes, and Matt is too scared to remember anything but his mother’s fear. As Christie looks for the killer and Maggie’s friends fight to keep Matt out of the hands of Child Services, Nadal watches the news and waits.

"If anyone's writing better police thrillers than George, I don't know who it is." - Entertainment Weekly

"The story moves along rapidly; and while the child-in-jeopardy premise is a familiar one, the suspense keeps building as the fate of the boy hangs in the balance. Should appeal to fans of Mary Higgins Clark." - Booklist

"The plot is compelling and the characters well drawn...A Measure of Blood is an enjoyable police ride-along, with plenty of hometown flavor and characters worthy of investment." - Pittsburgh Post-Gazette
