Sedgwick, Marcus, A Love Like Blood

In 1944, just days after the liberation of Paris, Charles Jackson sees something horrific: a man in a dark tunnel, apparently drinking the blood of a murdered woman. Terrified, he does nothing, telling himself afterward that worse tragedies happen during war.Seven years later he returns to the city—and sees the same man dining in the company of a fascinating, beautiful young woman. When they leave the restaurant, Charles decides to follow . . .A Love Like Blood is a dark, compelling thriller about how a man's life can change in a moment and about where the desire for truth—and revenge—can lead.
