Description


NOW A MAJOR MOTION PICTURE

A gripping novel about a young woman being chased by her violent past, and the flawed father forced to come to her rescue


Lydia Carson is an accident waiting to happen. Strung out, she's always running from disaster, and more often she's running right into it. Now at seventeen, Lydia has stumbled onto real trouble. Not only has she witnessed a brutal murder perpetrated by her boyfriend, but his minions are out to make sure that she doesn't have a story to tell the police.

John Link is a former Hell's Angel, an ex-con, trying to stay clean and sober while running a tattoo parlor from the kitchen of his trailer home. He's also Lydia's long-estranged father, and when both the police and her boyfriend's thugs are hot on Lydia's trail, Link becomes Lydia's only hope.

From the highly acclaimed author of Hot Plastic, Blood Father is a gripping novel that confirms Peter Craig's place among the best crime novelists of his generation.

Praise For…


"Rollicking ... An engaging, affecting read ... [about] a father coming to terms with his past and a daughter confronting her demons as they go on the lam."—Publishers Weekly

"This father-and-daughter tale, recast as a fast-paced thriller, solidifies [Peter Craig's] reputation as a writer with a fresh and vivid point of view. Its theme of family reconciliation will especially appeal to readers who like their thrillers to be about more than just good guys and bad guys."—Booklist

"Gruesome,
haunting, tragic and, strangely enough, edifying, Peter Craig's Blood Father is nothing short of
brilliant."—BookPage

"It
is Craig's continuing exploration of difficult family relationships that gives Blood Father its vivid, pulsing heart."—Paula L. Woods, Los Angeles Times

"Headlong,
dust-billowing suspense thriller, the best yet from Craig."—Kirkus Reviews
