"A brave and daring writer." —Lisa See, New York Times bestselling author of Shanghai Girls The Carson dynasty rules the ski resort town of Mammoth Lakes in the Sierra Nevada Mountains in California. Founded by patriarch Adam, the town is the site of the Mammoth Cup ski race-a qualifier for the Olympics. But when Wylie Welborn, Adam's illegitimate grandson, returns after a stint in Afghanistan, it reopens a dark moment in Carson family history: the murder of Wylie's father by his jealous and very pregnant wife, Cynthia. Her son Sky, born while his mother was in prison, and Wylie are half-brothers. They inherit not only superb athletic skills but an enmity that threatens to play out in a lethal drama on one of the fastest and most perilous ski slopes in the world. Three powerful and unusual women have central roles in this volatile family feud: Cynthia, bent on destroying Wylie; his mother Kathleen, determined to protect him; and April Holly, a beautiful celebrity snowboarder, on track to win Olympic Gold. But, as Wylie falls in love with April and they begin to imagine a life away from the violence that has shattered his family, history threatens to repeat itself and destroy them both. Combining exquisite writing with breathtaking scenes of high stakes skiing, T. Jefferson Parker's Crazy Blood is an unforgettable story of two brothers on a ruthless quest for supremacy.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“A tense and compelling drama of the wars without and the wars within.” T. C. Boyle, New York Times bestselling author
“A moving portrait of Marines who fought in Afghanistan…A novel that is not only supremely readable—that’s true of all Parker’s fiction—but is also a moving, sometimes heartbreaking portrait of what often seems a lost generation…Artfully composed and painfully honest.” Washington Post
