About In Their Blood

A quiet neighborhood in Miami Beach.

A shotgun blast.

Nothing will ever seem ordinary again.

When his parents are brutally murdered in their own home, Jeremy Stroeb, a disillusioned college student, is determined to learn the truth. Unaware that he’s putting his own life in jeopardy and his sister at risk, he tries to find his parents’ killer by getting on the inside of their worlds. But in doing so, Jeremy discovers his adolescent view of his mother and father was wrong. They weren’t the people he had believed them to be.


"In Their Blood starts with a bang and never lets up. This is thriller writing the way it is supposed to be." —Michael Connelly, New York Times best-selling author

* "A red-hot suspense novel." —Publishers Weekly (Starred Review)

"The plot still sizzles." —Entertainment Weekly

"Sharon Potts has written a crackling debut crime novel. From the empathetic horror of her violent prologue to a final confrontation with the killer, the author imbues reluctant protagonist Jeremy with sharp, but non-conformist, views that mark a credible investigator fixated upon who might have killed his parents and why. Truly, I could not put this first novel down." —Jeremiah Healy, author of Rescue

"Potts’ debut shows the skills of a seasoned writer as she delivers a complex plot that builds believable suspense on every page. In Their Blood creates the kind of sophisticated tension that was the foundation of the late Barbara Parker’s novels. Potts’ affinity for characters and brisk pacing make In Their Blood an exciting debut." —South Florida Sun-Sentinel

"The action unfolds in a crisply paced, unpretentious narrative; and an abundance of red herrings gives readers plenty to chew on as they try to figure out whodunit. A satisfying debut." —Booklist

"In this powerful debut novel, Sharon Potts successfully blends edge-of-the-seat suspense with the emotional journey into adulthood of her twenty-something protagonist and his younger sister. I held my breath as I watched Jeremy and Elise search for their parents’ murderer and, in the process, discover the love and approval they thought they had lost." —Barbara Parker, New York Times best-selling author

"A super amateur sleuth tale starring a sympathetic hero who seeks closure for himself and his hurting sister. In Their Blood is a terrific, creative, not by the numbers, thriller." —The Mystery Gazette

"Sexy soapy and fun early on." —ForeWord Magazine

"In Their Blood is a coming of age story as much as a revenge story, and a good one." —Florida Book Review

"Sharon Potts’s gripping psychological suspense debut In Their Blood straddles new territory as both a heart-pounding-all-night-read and the richly textured tale of a child forced to grow up fast. If there is anyone who doesn’t identify with Jeremy Stroeb’s race to find his parents’ killer, he must have a heart as hard as Miami’s streets." —Christine Kling, author of Wreckers’ Key

"Oozing with unending suspense, bombshell after explosive bombshell, and a fascinating, complex plotline, Potts’ story is a thrilling read from beginning to the very end. Although a fresh name on the fiction scene, Potts weaves a fascinating story as proficiently as any experienced best-selling novelist. Outstanding." —Vicki Landes, author of Europe for the Senses
