The New York Times–bestselling author of Bitter Blood weaves "a powerful account" of greed that led to an unspeakable crime (The New York Times Book Review). As they slept in their North Carolina home, wealthy Lieth Von Stein and his wife Bonnie suffered a vicious assault with a knife and a baseball bat. Bonnie barely survived. Lieth did not. The crime seemed totally baffling until police followed a trail that led to the charming stepson, Chris Pritchard, and his brilliant, drug-using, Dungeons and Dragons–playing friends at North Carolina State University. "Haunting . . . Addictive, chilling and a masterpiece of reportage," Blood Games is the true story of depraved young minds and a son's gruesome greed turned to horrifyingly tragedy (Patricia Cornwell). Jerry Bledsoe masterfully reconstructs the bloody crime and its aftermath as he takes us into the secret twisted hearts of three young murderers. "Mr. Bledsoe goes straight to the bigger issues." —The New York Times Book Review "In Mr. Bledsoe's hands, a mega-load of inert facts becomes a human story of hurricane force." —The News & Observer "Devastating . . . A brilliant account." —Publishers Weekly
