Kathleen Mallory Series, Book 9

A mutilated body is found lying on the ground in Chicago, a dead hand pointing down Adams Street; also know as Route 66, a road of many names. And now of many deaths.

A silent caravan of cars, dozens of them, drives down, that road, each passenger bearing a photograph, but none of them the same. They are the parents of missing children, some recently disappeared, some gone a decade or more-all brought together by word that children’s grave sites are being discovered along the Mother Road.

Kathy Mallory drives with them. The child she seeks, though, is not like the others. It is herself-the feral child adopted off the streets, her father a blank, her mother dead and full of mysteries. During the next few extraordinary days, Mallory will find herself hunting a killer like none she has ever known, and will undergo a series of revelations not only of stunning intensity--but stunning effect.

About the Author-
  • Carol O'Connell has been consistently praised as a gifted storyteller (Milwaukee Journal Sentinel), the author of stylishly innovative (San Francisco Chronicle), immensely affecting (Miami Herald) novels with an irresistible narrative force (Publishers Weekly). "Winter House" is her eighth novel. She lives in New York City.

Reviews-
  • AudioFile Magazine Alyssa Bresnahan does a breathtaking job of making New York City Homicide Detective Kathie Mallory's weird, cold borderline personality appealing, and of maintaining pace in this baroque plot. I'm not convinced the disparate parts of Mallory's personality fit any realistic pathology, but she's riveting to watch as she goes after a serial murderer of little girls who has notched 100 kills and is now raising the ante with a new MO. It's unclear whether Mallory's own father is a suspect, and oh, also, when she left New York, there was a dead woman in her apartment, plus, scores of parents of murder victims are in the mix, playing moving targets as the death toll mounts. Bresnahan keeps scores of characters vivid and distinct, and the story boiling. B.G. (c) AudioFile 2007, Portland, Maine

    When the death toll of serial killer "Mack the Knife" exceeds 100 victims along historic Route 66 in America's heartland, Kathy Mallory, on vacation from her job with the NYPD, decides to give the locals a hand in bestseller O'Connell's exciting ninth thriller to feature the frosty, unapproachable detective (after 2004's Winter House
    ). Aided by her longtime partner Riker and police psychologist Charles Butler, Mallory butts heads with just about everyone, pursuing the case as if it were hers and hers alone. She makes little progress until the killer starts leaving a new calling card, depositing fresh kills on the highway, all with one hand chopped off and replaced with the tiny hand bones of a previous victim pointing to a new grave. Stylish prose and a magnetic lead character more than compensate for an overly complicated plot that drags in spots, particularly in the second half. For readers who have never followed Mallory, this is as good a time as ever to get acquainted. Author tour.

    A complex tale of murder, betrayal and unexpected revelations of self-discovery are some of the compelling elements that make up this exceptional entry into O'Connell's mystery series featuring a NYPD detective and ex-feral child, Kathy Mallory. While on a deeply personal road trip along Route 66, Mallory gets caught up in a manhunt for a serial killer. The investigating authorities believe Mack the Knife has been murdering children and burying them along the old highway for over a decade, with the death toll reaching more than 100. When adult bodies begin showing up, Mallory embarks on a mission to end the murder's killing streak, no matter what the cost. Bresnahan manages to balance multiple viewpoints and a wide variety of characters without resorting to over-the-top vocal theatrics. Her clear, matter-of-fact delivery keeps the plot moving at a steady pace and works well with the material. She is especially effective in her portrayal of the no-nonsense Mallory, a troubled character who never lets emotions get in the way of her job. Bresnahan's narration pulls the listener deep into this absorbing and suspenseful story. Simultaneous release with the Putnam hardcover (Reviews, Oct. 16).
