Blood Ties: A Bishop/Special Crimes Unit Novel (2010) by Kay Hooper is the third in the trilogy featuring this character set, and three other trilogies have preceded this one. I did read the second in this trilogy, Blood Sins (2009), but have yet to read the first, Blood Dreams (2007). This ultra-violent third novel is bloated with characters, both new and old, but suffers from a lack of plot innovation. In this reality the “crimes unit” is the “FBI's most controversial and effective team," and the word “special” is to be interpreted as “uniquely psychic” – The X-Files did it better.
