Abandoned at birth and left as an orphan twice after that, Jane Walker has made it through the foster care system with her best friend, Sadie. Promising themselves never to look back but always look to the future, they have made a life for themselves. However, Jane has concealed a unique pattern of blood-red birthmarks that snake around her body—always hiding them and wishing them away. When they suddenly start disappearing and her nightmares become clearer, she realizes that they may have more to do with her safety than she previously thought. Connecting with a professor at the university, Jane discovers that her birthmark may be much more than she thought. Sadie has her own battles to fight as she is caught in the seedy world of a high-end call girl. Neither of the girls could have imagined the lengths a narcissistic doctor would go to protect his lies and deceit. When Jane disappears, Sadie has to join forces with Jane's friends to find her before time runs out.

Blood Mark by JP Mclean is a well-written psychological thriller. JP McLean writes an edge-of-your-seat thriller with some unexpected twists. I was so caught up in the story I could not put it down. The author successfully weaves the paranormal aspect through the story, making the whole narrative natural and flowing, easy to follow. The author touches on various themes, such as the broken child welfare system and the dark world of prostitution. The characters have human flaws, and one can relate to their circumstances and decisions. Some sexual content, drug use, and violence all complement the narrative of Blood Mark.
