27. Blood Brother by Malcolm Rose

            This is the sixth volume in the YA-level Traces series.  Luke Harding is a sixteen year old boy who is a Forensic Investigator in an alternate universe.  We start this book with Luke in the hospital recuperating after his last case.  As he is released from the hospital he is assigned to investigate an anomaly in the number of deaths taking place in the hospital.  A prime suspect becomes the father he has not seen since he was five years old.  There is also the gruesome Institute of Biomechanical Research or the mysterious Heather Man who leaves gifts of heather with those he visits.  Luke must follow the clues with the help of Malc his Mobile Aid to Law and Crime, an autonomous computer and miniature crime lab.  This series is interesting as it brings up issues that are relevant to today’s world but approached somewhat differently in this alternate universe.
