Product Description

Product Description

"Why would anyone want to tear out someone's heart..."

That's the very real question facing college freshman Jenna Blake, and it has nothing to do with romance and heartbreak. A second grisly murder-mystery is unfolding at Somerset University, and her job as a pathology assistant at the local hospital brings Jenna too close to the haunting crimes.

Everyone has a theory on the nature of the killings, including Jenna's older half-brother, Pierce Logan, who's new in town and has some odd ideas about why someone would want to steal a human heart.

Meanwhile, Jenna is working on her own heart, and starting to realize she's not as "guy-blind" as she thought, when she meets a fascinating older man.

But there's little time for dating when the Thief of Hearts declares Somerset the perfect hunting ground -- and someone very close to Jenna is the prey.

5.0 out of 5 stars Talented Writing like this is rare 25 Aug 2001
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I have now read all of the published body of evidence books staring Jenna Blake and i have to say this is the best of all of them. It has everything a book needs to keep you in suspense. Not only is this book of the horror and thriller genre but it also has romance (not too much) and a very detailed medical knowledge. All this makes this series of books for everyone no matter which genre is preferred. This particular book is the most thrilling because everything happens in it the story line is so much different from the rest of the series how Christopher Golden comes up with these ideas is beyond me, it has to be said that all his books are unique, it just happens that this is more unique than the rest.Well worth the read.Amazon should be praised for stocking this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Courtesy of Teens Read Too 14 Oct 2006
By TeensReadToo TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Mass Market Paperback
After Jenna Blake's very eventful first week at Somerset University in Massachusetts (BODY BAGS) which included politically-motivated killings and attempts on her life, it would be hard to believe that college could get even more complicated. But in THIEF OF HEARTS, it does just that, and in true style!

Jenna's been at college for a month now, getting into the rhythm of classes, friendship (with her roommate Yoshiko, best friend Melody, and Melody's brother Hunter), and a renewed relationship with her father, Professor Logan, who teaches at the school. Now, her half-brother, Pierce, has shown up to spend his thirty-day leave from the Marine Corps with their father, and Jenna is thrilled. She hasn't seen her much older brother in years, and she's looking forward to renewing their relationship.

There's a problem though--more murders start happening on and around campus, just about the time Pierce shows up in Somerset. And Jenna's doubly dismayed when she assists in the first autopsy as part of her job with the Medical Examiner's office, and realizes that these murders are particularly grisly. Whoever is killing men and women around Somerset isn't just murdering them, but taking their hearts.

As the suspense builds--Pierce becomes a suspect of local detectives Audrey Gaines and Danny Mariano; Jenna and her friends just might be in danger--the book picks up speed. I read THIEF OF HEARTS in one sitting, much the same way I did with the first book in the series, BODY BAGS.

This is a great series for readers of all ages who are interested in forensic work. Highly recommended, and I can't wait to get started on the next book in the series.

Christopher Golden threw me for a loop with this story, with the death of a major character.

I read Thief of Hearts by Christopher Golden. In a college town a series of murders mysteriously happen. Jenna Blake, a freshman college student, can't relax until the crime is solved. I like this book because it's intriguing even if it is twisted. You'll especially like it if you like mystery and murder stories. The characters and storyline is realistic. I would recommend this book for teens and up.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic Teen Thriller 21 Dec 2003
By Erika Sorocco - Published on
Format:Mass Market Paperback
When Somerset University freshman, and pathology assistant, Jenna Blake, faces a new murder mystery plaguing the student population of Somerset, she realizes just how close she's being brought to the haunting crimes. Everyone has strange, yet possible theories involving the crimes, including Jenna's half-brother, Pierce Logan, the new guy in town. Meanwhile, Jenna begins having feelings towards an older man, which are abruptly interrupted, when the Thief of Hearts begins hunting on Somerset's campus, and someone very close to Jenna is his prey.
I was skeptical about THIEF OF HEARTS, as I thought that it could never outdo the previous book in the series, BODY BAGS. I was completely wrong. THIEF OF HEARTS is a fantastic, hold onto your seat, thrill ride, that brings you up close and personal with grizzly murders, and the procedures the officials use to solve the case, both in the medical examiner's office, and the police department. Fans of BODY BAGS will find that THIEF OF HEARTS, while being a sequel, is both terrifying and engrossing, and will find it hard to put it down until the very last page is turned. A must-have for everyone, except the faint of heart.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another great read with lots of twists 5 Nov 1999
By A Customer - Published on
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Christopher Golden has hooked me with his new Jenna Blake series. This book was even better than the first if that is possible and was anything but predictable which makes his books very enjoyable. I can't wait to read his new one. This is a must read for mystery fans. They won't be disappointed with the characters, plot, or the way he draws you into the book and makes you feel like you are there and know the people.

5.0 out of 5 stars Steal your heart 16 Sep 1999
By A Customer - Published on
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Christopher Golden continues to expand the character of Jenna Blake as she learns more about her college, her family, her friends, and her job as the M.E.'s assistant...
...only to have a mid-book twist that panged my heart to read. I literally had to stop reading, go do some other things for a few minutes, and come back, because I couldn't believe what he'd done. And that I was crying.
Talk about tugging at the readers' emotions... Bravo again, Christopher!
