September 22, 1928, Massena, New York Jack Pool s sixteenth birthday He s been restless lately, especially during this season of times at the synagogue than you can shake a stick at If it wasn t Rosh Hashanah, then it was Yom Kippur, and if it wasn t Yom Kippur, it was the Sabbath But temple s good for some things It gives him lots of time to daydream about a beautiful but inaccessible Gentile girl named Emaline And if she isn t on his mind, then he s thinking about his music and imagining himself playing the cello with the New York Philharmonic Yup, music is definitely his ticket out of this remote whistle stop town he doesn t want to be stuck here one minute But he doesn t realize exactly how stuck he is until Emaline s little sister Daisy goes missing and he and his family are accused of killing her for a blood sacrifice.

Blood Lie was inspired by a real blood libel that took place when a small girl disappeared from Massena, New York, in 1928, and an innocent Jewish boy was called a murderer.
