About Blood Tracks: Gina is a runner. With her feet pounding the ground and her dad watching, she feels like she can fly. But when her dad dies in dramatic circumstances, Gina refuses to accept the explanations she is given. Struggling to find the truth, Gina finds herself plunged into a world far removed from the one she has known; a world of lies, crime and betrayal. A world that will make her question everyone and everything around her and a world she can’t run from. pub: June 2013
