Find Meby Carol Oconnell
I love thrillers and good detective fiction, so when I discovered Carol O'Connell's Mallory series, I was over the moon. Calling NYPD Detective Kathy Mallory unique is an understatement her psyche was shredded in her early years, which she spent as a street kid born of an unknown father and a murdered mother. Adopted at age 12 by an NYPD homicide detective and his wife, Mallory, like Jeff Lindsay's Dexter, is one of those characters (well, yes, she may be a sociopath) who, while deeply flawed, fascinates and intrigues us.
Through eight novels, we have watched Mallory's story unfold, each novel taking us deeper into her personal mystery. In Find Me, Mallory embarks on a search for her past and ends up following the trail of a caravan of parents searching for their lost and assumed-dead children down historic Route 66. Pulled into a search for a serial killer who has been using the old road as a hunting ground for decades, Mallory faces her darkest fears. O'Connell has etched a riveting thriller that held my attention until the end and, as always, left me wanting more.
Synopses & Reviews
The astonishing new Mallory novel from the New York Timesbestselling author and one of the most acclaimed crime writers in America.
The reviews called it A Play to Die For” after the woman was found dead in the front row. It didnt seem so funny the next night, when another body was found—this time the playwrights, his throat slashed.
Detective Kathy Mallory takes over, but no matter what she asks, no one seems to be giving her a straight answer. The only person—if person” is the right word—who seems to be clear is the ghostwriter. Every night, an unseen backstage hand chalks up line changes and messages on a blackboard. And the ghostwriter is now writing Mallory into the play itself, a play about a long-ago massacre that may not be at all fictional. MALLORY,” the blackboard reads. TONIGHTS THE NIGHT. NOTHING PERSONAL.”
If Mallory cant find out whos responsible, heads will roll. Unfortunately, one of them may be her own.
On Route 66, as word travels that children's grave sites are being discovered along the road, the parents of missing children form a silent caravan. They are being shepherded by NYPD Detective Kathleen Mallory, who seeks a killer like none she has ever known-and a child unlike the others: herself.
