From the Sunday Times number one bestselling author Jo Nesbo comes an explosive stand-alone thriller about family, loyalty, and the lengths people will go to cling on to power.


In many ways, the brothers Carl and Roy Opgard have succeeded in life. Or at least they've had as much success as is possible in a small town like Os where they've had to kill their way to the top. Carl manages the area's swanky spa hotel, while Roy has made ambitious plans for an amusement park complete with a roller coaster.

The only way is up for the two brothers. Unless the local sheriff can bring them down.

The sheriff believes he has new evidence that will prove the brothers involvement in several past murders, but Carl and Roy Opgard are used to covering their tracks, and they're not afraid to get their hands dirty.

The high body count of Os is about to get higher.

Blood Ties is a grandiose and explosive suspense novel about loyalty, family ties, consuming love, and the fight against powerful forces. It will transport you to a community in crisis and tell the story of two brothers on the verge of losing all that they've fought for.
