For as long as Jill Andersen could remember, her father was a hero.
But heroes don’t commit murder, do they? The state of Maryland said Paul Andersen did just that, three times over, and was set to execute him for it. But Jill and the rest of her colleagues at the Baltimore Police Department come across the murder of a law student that leaves her hopeful that she can clear her father’s name.
While Jill and her colleagues work against the clock to clear her father’s name, new players emerge, hinting to a deeper, darker conspiracy than what was previously known. An enigmatic faction known as The Order reveals itself, and the mystery surrounding Paul’s alleged duplicity leaves more questions than answers.
Along the way, Jill must not only face the possibility that her father was not who she thought he was, but she must also face the prospect of her secret being revealed. The stakes are higher than ever in Blood Ties, the intense follow-up to J.D. Cunegan’s debut mystery Bounty.
Can Jill save her father before it’s too late? Will she even want to?

Praise for Blood Ties:
“The fantastic mystery and investigations that are sure to accompany are icing on the cake that is a solid ensemble full of all the heart and driving soul to carry a story through the most generic arcs… Blood Ties accomplishes everything a sequel should do, joining the main storyline and building on what the first book introduced, without slacking the pace any.” — Leslie Conzatti, The Upstream Writer
“I found myself unable to stop reading, needing to know what was going to happen next. There are moments that will shock you, moments that will make you smile and laugh, and moments that will tug at your heartstrings, and maybe even bring a tear to your eye. Blood Ties is a fantastic book, and if you even just liked Bounty, I very much recommend that you give Blood Ties a read.” — Mary Head, author of The Only One
“Well-written and fast-paced with never a dull moment, this engaging sequel to ‘Bounty’ plays out almost like a gripping television crime drama. Scene changes, the realistic dialogue, and flashbacks flow seamlessly. The characters are diverse (a big plus for me), colorful, believable, and likeable—the character of Jill Andersen being as solid as her titanium skeleton.” — Mel Corban, author
“High-recommended for readers of mystery and urban fantasy alike, this tale of vigilantes, villains, and police has a little something for everyone.” — J.C. Steel, author of Through the Hostage
