Reasons why I hated this book 1 It s terrible It was recommended on NPR as this terrifying thriller, when in reality it s just a retread of Silence of the Lambs serial killer who kidnaps, kills, and mutilates young female women Check , The DaVinci Code single minded killer whose damaged psyche was further warped by a twisted religious upbringing Check , Angels and Demons killings inspired by events in ancient Catholic history Check , and most of the Saw movies I should mention I hate three out o [...]
Jonathan Hayes, a forensic pathologist himself for the city of New York, writes his first thriller PRECIOUS BLOOD from a place of pure authenticity Though Publisher s Weekly complained of the lack of.fficient focus on his protagonist s emotional state , I found that the essence of that emotional state permeates every fiber of Dr Jenner s being as he is dragged into the dark, sickness of the killer s escalation into mind bending cruelty The book may seem to some slow to build but I found as the s [...]
I m usually not a fan of the serial killer genre, but this one s a good solid read Jonathan Hayes debut introduces Edward Jenner, who, like Hayes himself, is a Medical Examiner in New York City Hayes has a very deft hand he puts in just enough detail, about pathology and about life in his beloved New York, to keep the reader s interest without slowing the story down The main thing that makes or breaks a serial killer novel is the killer himself At first I was afraid Hayes villain, who starts off [...]
Ah, the serial killer That sociopathic individual that gives Americans such a delicious thrill I m not sure what it says about us as a people that we are so fascinated with sick, twisted, violent death, but given the number of books, movies, and true crime shows on the subject, we seem to have a never ending curiosity.I will admit to this morbid fascination in myself I like to think that my interest is as a result of my profound desire to understand the human mind, but I suspect there is a fair [...]
Precious Blood By Jonathan Hayes WOW I found this book at Dollar Tree, actually, and I am SO glad that I picked it up Kathy Reichs says Taut and chilling, a fast paced thriller, written by a real player in the game of forensic sleuthing And she s right Edward Jenner is an ex Medical Examiner, who afer 9 11 goes through a period of severe depression, and emotional turmoil He is brought back into the forensic department as a personal favor, and ends up helping in the race to catch a serial killer [...]
This was a good mystery that kept me turning pages trying to find out what would happen next There were times when I found both the main characters frustrating and annoying, but I was caught off guard by how much I cared about them and wanted them to survive when they were squaring off against the killer.I know wasn t that realistic the way the cops handled things and reacted, but after all it s a work of fiction, I don t think that diminishes the book in any way I would recommend it to anyone w [...]
A very fast paced and chilling thriller This was an excellent debut for Jonathan Hayes Before I had even read the book I was aware that the author was a forensic pathologist The detail of the investigation is profound and obviously from a man with common knowledge of this expertise, however the way in which the novel is written enables many readers to take it all in and become understanding and captivated by it all I thoroughly enjoyed this book and hope to find that the author has written again [...]
Engrossing thriller, finished it in one week which is pretty quick for me Enjoyable, haunted characters, and a chilling, super creepy villain If you enjoy the genre, you ll enjoy Precious Blood There were a few pieces of the story I found to be unnecessary, and I m not sure how I feel about Jenner overall which is why I resisted a five star rating.
new author, new character i WANT to read about dr edward jenner has amazing potential in being the newest crime detective in the form of a forensic pathologistEAT read i want mORE totally twisted plot and i LOVED the references to home somerset,pa even if they werent accurate
Pretty good Not as good as most of the other books authors I usually read I did enjoy it though.
After the big reveal 86% of the way thru I gave up I had no idea who that person was and was waiting on that reveal to make or break this book Eager to start on something else Next
Derivative and cliche.
For a debut novel, Precious Blood exceeded my expectations Medical examiner Edward Jenner was hired to investigate the exceedingly gruesome murder of a young woman in New York City Needless to say, other murders follow and as the numbers mount, the severity of cruelty increases There are decapitated heads soaking in deep puddles of milk, pole impalements and a creative new use for an ice cream scooper other than dipping ice cream Jenner is forbidden to investigate any of the other murders due to [...]
This is a really good book about a retired pathologist who gets dragged into a case Really interesting character, great plot that moves along well It s the first book I ve read by Jonathan Hayes and I will definitely be reading .
A well written book that kept my attention all the way through.

The story had a good premise but there were a few too many plot holes for my liking and it wasn t very well planned out By the last few sentences, I was left with that but.why feeling I needed to know about the killer and his motives for the killings weren t made very clear Yes, he went through abuse but why the fascination for such elaborate deaths Characters were left up in the air the ones you think are key characters turn out not to be one of them is referred to by 3 different names through [...]
Precious Blood by Jonathan Hayes a first novel by the author, who is or was a New York City medical examiner ME I had mixed feelings about the book Recommended highly to me by a friend, I loved the locations I could picture many of them and that gave me an immediate connection to the book But I felt the story was too gruesome, which may be strange as I have enjoyed various gruesome Scandinavian crime stories, but I can t help it.Set mostly in Manhattan, with side trips to Pennsylvania and New Je [...]

One thing I really liked about this book is the gory killings Precious Blood is set at a rather fast pace With the intensity of the brutal kills, the book give a visual picture of all the events Author, Hayes writing is straight to the point without missing vital details.Only flaw, The background story of the Inquisitor Yes, Jenner went back to Bobby Farrar s hometown, was told about the growing up and rumors about him by the then Chief of police department From what I read, I thought the ground [...]

My first book from this author and this series I m not sure where this one fits in the list, but I really liked this novel The M.E Medical Examiner , Doc Jenner, has some residual emotional issues from 9 11 He is asked by a friend to look into the death of a close family member I liked that this brilliant M.E does not see everything and figures it all out at the first look But he sees the clues and fallows them until they pay off It is usually dry reading when one reads about the autopsy with al [...]
As a debut novel goes, this is actually pretty good The serial killer is scary without being comical although the big WHY question was left out of the story and the heroic tragic figure Jenner is realistically scarred enough to be believable without going OTT Aa the reluctant heroine of this book is slightly fantasy world I mean wow if it was that quick to get through cold turkey and survive wouldn t the wold be a better place She s a screw up, and sympathy for her wanes fairly quickly for me.T [...]
An entertaining debut, but lacking in originality and character development Protagonist Dr Edward Jenner left his job in the NYC ME s office after 9 11 s aftermath took its toll Hired by a friend s family to investigate the brutal killing of their daughter, Jenner finds himself hunting a serial killer and becoming involved with the victim s roommate Hayes borrows from Thomas Harris and even a little bit of Dan Brown Jenner s PTSD is never fully explored and most characters are stock A quick read [...]
I had read this book but didn t remember the details so reread to get ready for the next novel featuring Dr Edward Jenner Mixed feelings on this probably why I couldn t remember it Had some sections that just didn t blend with the main plotcially Jenner s relationship with the young girl who was a niece of a friend of his and roommate to one of the killer s victims This made the story drag.But the last chapters were exciting and ending was worth rereading I m hoping the next novel from Hayes wil [...]
