"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete? Cognitive scientist and public intellectual Steven Pinker urges us to step back from the gory headlines and prophecies of doom, and instead, follow the data: In seventy-five jaw-dropping graphs, Pinker shows that life, health, prosperity, safety, peace, knowledge, and happiness are on the rise.

These books are well written and the characters are well crafted! Each book was better than the last one and I loved these books and can't wait for the next one to come out! I highly would recommend these books to any one.
The plot has been used before by this author and was simply plugging a new kidnapper/ murderer of children into the mix. And, again, Clarrisa was in danger. Is it any wonder that the child is emotionally scarred?
Add in the embarrassment of some descriptions of Mary and Bradley's love making - fortunately not so graphic as some authors use to ruin books - but still an annoyance to skip past fast.
And, now Mary is pregnant and I have no hope that she will avoid dangerous situations and the baby will soon be at risk as the series continues.
The strength of these books has always been the emotional resolution given to those who have lost loved ones as the cases are solved and trapped souls are helped to the light.
In this book the bereaved mother, only briefly touched on - gets an off page phone call to let her know her daughter's murderer has been found. Give me a break.
What I enjoyed about the previous books is that Mary meets ghosts that she tries to help. That didn't happen in this book even though there should have been many ghosts for Mary to help. There were ghosts in a car, there was a murder that was made to look like a suicide that would have been ripe for a ghost but even with this murder and the missing girls the Chief doesn't ask Mary to help or to try and communicate with the dead man or the missing girls. The one thing she did do was confirm to a mother that her child was dead. Chief Alden also told the same mother that he did not know what he would do if his child missing. WHAT? He spent the last 10 books looking for his child.
I also missed Ian, he goes to Chicago in the first chapter and we never hear from him again. Even Mike the angel wasn't well represented in this story, his appearances seemed forced and even though Mike knows that Clarissa and Maggie had a run in with the bad man but he doesn't tell Mary or Bradley and he didn't keep a closer eye on Clarissa. Not a very good guardian angel!
This whole story seemed to be headed towards what I am sure was supposed to be a surprise ending I am also sure no one was surprised by it.
The one thing that does surprise me is that Mary can't seem to keep from being kidnapped by serial killers. I hope in the next book the author puts more thought into it I really like Mary and she deserves a better story than this one.
Can someone please tell me where the shard of glass came from? I just about reread the whole book looking to see where the shard of glass came from. You can't just automatically put a piece of glass sticking out of someone's chest (Mary) without telling how it got there. Very disappointed. Don't even know if I'll try the next in the series if the writer is this burned out.
