Following the acclaimed debut of The Enemy Inside and its sequel, Broken, comes the stunning conclusion to the 'Edge of Darkness' series by investigative journalist Vanessa Skye, Bloodlines. Detective Alicia "Berg" Raymond is lying. She's lying to the Chicago Police Department, to her boyfriend, Captain Jay O'Loughlin, but most of all, she's lying to herself-about her past, her future, and her ongoing addiction. As Berg investigates a series of brutal rapes and sinks under an ever-increasing caseload, she finds herself juggling every aspect of her life-finding justice for victims of crime, keeping her own sordid past buried from her colleagues, struggling with blackmail that threatens to push her over the edge, and protecting her lover from the details of all of it. Wrapping her damaged head around living in a state of domestic bliss she's certain she doesn't deserve, Berg is driven by the need for justice and a determination to stop a rapist before any more innocent lives are ravaged. But when enemies from the past threaten her present, she is once again vulnerable to the demons that have plagued her every day of her life. It's only a matter of time before her lies unravel and the fairy tale she's finally started believing implodes . . . but the biggest threat of all, as it turns out, is her very own bloodline. Can she save herself, and the casualties of crime, from the lurking darkness waiting to strike, or will her own mistakes drag her under-this time for good?
