During a reunion at their ancestral castle, the famed Von Kassel family -- arms dealers for over a hundred years -- suddenly find themselves in possession of stolen plutonium capable of creating the most destructive weapon on earth.

Reviews - What do customers think about Blood Ties?

Middle of the road novel about family obcessions  Mar 24, 2005
Warren Adler's "Blood Ties" is about a family of aristocrats that are masters of the arms trade that have their annual reunion just before the patriach dies from his heart condition. The Von Kessels are obcessed with blood, and see no reason for ethical reservations, but the son who is favored to take over the empire believes that nuclear weapons are too terrible and awesome not to have reservations about. While Albert von Kessel struggles with his dilemma, a mysterious woman comes to Aunt Karla, and threatens to reveal a secret that would change everything. And the Russian widow of a long-lost prodigal uncle comes to the gathering, but under suspiction of being a spy. This does capture the late 70's well, but I felt that the end was too rushed and the action was rather dull. For this, I will say it is quite average.
