"Young blood, I can't get you out of my mind." Song lyrics

In "Blood Money" the story initially seems pulled from the newspaper headlines. The story tells of a highly publicized murder trial in Florida where a nightclub waitress is accused of murdering her two-year-old daughter for interrupting her mother's life.

Jack Swyteck realized how difficult the case would be when he took it on and was anticipating a guilty verdict.

When the jury announced 'not guilty' there was an outrage.

As the woman, Sydney Bennett, is scheduled for release, there is a near riot and a young woman dressed up to look like Sydney is injured and goes to the hospital in a coma.

There are many twists to the story as the injured woman's family has no health insurance and the woman's father  asks Jack to sue the TV station for their part in causing the riot which resulted in his daughter's injury.

We also learn of a darker side where a serial killer is at work and manipulating many of the events.

I enjoyed reading about Jack Swyteck and his code for taking on difficult cases.  I also liked the message in the story about families without health insurance and their fear of the hospital costs. In addition, I agree that the news media often causes things to escalate and should bear responsibility when things get out of hand due to their trying to build up a situation to something grander.
