Snapshot (The Carlotta Carlyle Mysteries Book 5) Kindle Edition
|New from||Used from|
Six-foot-tall, redheaded ex-cop and Boston-based private eye Carlotta Carlyle is “the genuine article: a straightforward, funny, thoroughly American mystery heroine” (New York Post).
Carlotta Carlyle is sorting through her junk mail when she finds a snapshot of a newborn baby she has never seen before. One week later, another arrives showing the same child one year older. The next week, a third arrives. As the deliveries continue, Carlotta becomes obsessed with this unnamed little girl and is drawn into one of the most dangerous assignments of her career.
The girl was named Rebecca and she died of leukemia at the age of seven. Her grief-stricken mother has never been able to accept what happened, so she hires Carlotta to investigate the highly regarded hospital where someone on staff seems to have forgotten the most important lesson of a doctor’s training: Do no harm.
Snapshot is the 5th book in the Carlotta Carlyle Mysteries, but you may enjoy reading the series in any order.
“SNAPSHOT is destined to secure Barnes' position in the hotshot ranks of detective fiction.” ―Arizona Republic on Snapshot
“Like the best of the new detectives...[Carlotta Carlyle] is a woman of wit and gravity, compassion and toughness, a heroine worth spending time with.... [Those of us] who yearn for whodunits with character as well wrought as plot, can only thank Linda Barnes.” ―The New York Times Book Review on Coyote
“Linda Barnes is once again brilliant. Coyote is damned good.” ―Robert B. Parker on Coyote
“Carlotta Carlyle is better than ever and Coyote is the perfect vehicle.” ―Sue Grafton on Coyote
“Linda Barnes has another winner in Coyote...a great, only-in-Boston climax.” ―Jeremiah Healy on Coyote
“The most refreshing, creative female character to hit mystery fiction since Sue Grafton's Kinsey Millhone...the other first ladies of crime better watch their backs.” ―People on Coyote
“Her first person prose is well-honed, and her touch is sure enough to float her fast-paced narrative while still allowing for sharp development of an intriguing cast of characters...best of all, Barnes can turn a phrase well enough to make even Paretsky and Grafton jealous.” ―Houston Chronicle on Coyote
“[There's] plenty to keep a reader chasing after the delightful Carlyle while she chases after the bad guys.” ―Entertainment Weekly on Deap Pockets
“Barnes weaves an intricate web with a pleasingly poisonous spider at its center...Barnes makes superb use of the town-grown tensions...the twists and turns in this nail-biter are at once startling without ever becoming absurd.” ―Publishers Weekly on Deap Pockets
“With Deep Pockets, Barnes locks in her position as one of the foremost practitioners of middle-of-the-road, character-based mystery...I suppose I could have put it down. But I didn't want to.” ―Orson Scott Card on Deap Pockets
“Pure pleasure.” ―Kirkus Reviews on The Big Dig
“A true page-turner...nobody knows Boston like Linda Barnes's red-haired private investigator Carlotta Carlyle...Barnes's knack for crisp, snappy dialogue, and devising a mystery that has both timeless and contemporary appeal is a winner.” ―Boston Herald on The Big Dig
“Barnes grabs the detective genre by the throat but rarely lets style overtake substance. The plot is thick and original and sure to surprise.” ―Washington Times on The Big Dig
“Carlotta Carlyle combines the sensitivity of Robert Parker's Spenser with the stubbornness of Paretsky's V.I. Warshawski and she's rapidly carving out a place of her own.” ―Chicago Tribune on The Big Dig
“A shrewd piece of writing, well researched and smartly told.” ―Marilyn Stasio, The New York Times Book Review on The Big Dig
“Carlotta is an engaging narrator with a brisk, easygoing style...a worthy competitor in the private eye business.” ―The Washington Post on The Big Dig
“A rivetingly well-told story.” ―Publishers Weekly on The Snake Tattoo
“Barnes' crisp writing and winsome cab-driving detective make this a smooth ride from start to stop...Carlyle earns rave reviews and a plea for encores.” ―Cincinnati Post on The Snake Tattoo
“Move over Spenser, make permanent room on the streets of Boston for another sleuth who's big (six feet one), strong and tough as nails but soft at the core.” ―Entertainment Weekly on The Snake Tattoo
“It's always a pleasure to spend time with this zesty detective...Carlotta has class and spirit to spare.” ―Baltimore Sun on The Snake Tattoo--This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
From the Back Cover
"A STUNNER!"-Denver Post
When work is slow, Carlotta Carlyle drives a cab on Boston's night-shrouded streets. When love goes wrong, she plays blues on a steel string guitar. And sometimes, when someone dies, she gets paid to find out why...
PICTURE OF INNOCENCE
The photos come one every week. A beautiful baby. A growing toddler. The apple of someone's eye. Then Carlotta finds out who has been sending her the snapshots-and why. Now, she begins an investigation into a revered Boston hospital and the possibility that a seven-year-old cancer patient was murdered there. And when her client goes missing and a stalker comes crashing into her life, Carlotta knows that in a realm of clashing egos and big-time medicine, a killer is desperately trying to cover his tracks. But what he has to hide, how far it reaches, and how many hearts it will break is still unclear. Until Carlotta gets the big picture-and faces an evil that she must conquer...any way she can.
"Barnes scored a direct hit with Steel Guitar, and her P.I. is in top form here."
