Mallory is on a quest for information...information on the death of her mother and her illegal "partner" chases after her in an attempt to try and win her affections.
Ah, I know what you're thinking...but alas, this is not one of those sappy romances with a mystery weaved into it. No, the mystery is definitely dominant and the romance is just a subtle tap on the shoulder...enough to keep you wondering about the outcome of this one-sided relationship, but your brain working furiously to solve the mystery.
I'll admit that the identity of the killer was not difficult to figure out, but for some reason, I still couldn't close the book...I just kept on reading.
I highly reccomend this book and all other books written by Carol O'Connell. However, it is in your best intrest to read the Mallory series starting from the beginning so you know the whole story, beginning with "Mallory's Oracle".
O'Connell is a master at using seemingly insignificant details and phrases to describe places and people that make them unforgettable. She has a way of writing whole paragraphs that should lead up to a predictable conclusion-but then in the last sentence floors the reader with a different perspective. (Usually Mallory's rather illegal or sociopath views) This makes for some of the most humorous and thought provoking material that I've read in a long time. O'Connell is simply at the top of her game here, making this book, in my opinion, much better than the previous three books in the Mallory series due to tighter editing, a more emotionally involved plot, and an insane setting.
The detail of Mallory's name at the end of the book completely shocked me. It showed that O'Connell has either planned out this book from the very beginning of the series, or simply is a master writer. Everything about this book is incredible-from the autistic piano player with broken hands and the old dog waiting for his owner to the haunting stone angels in the cemetery and a mischievous old lady who lets her mansion go to ruin. In short, a masterpiece.
