Crime School (Kathleen Mallory, #6) While I thought the plot and characters were interesting, I got really really really tired of reading that Kathy s eyes are green, Charles is tall, blahblahblah. I always love Carol O Connell s Mallory novels This, the sixth in the series, is no exception It s written with her usual flair, wit, insight and excellent storytelling As always, it is extremely well structured so that the story and tension build slowly but grippingly and the climaxes are both thrilling and surprising.The crime story itself is about a serial k Over The Course Of Six Novels, Carol O Connell Has Become One Of Our Most Acclaimed Writers Of Suspense Her Heroine, Kathy Mallory, Is Stunningly Unique Milwaukee Journal Sentinel O Connell Conjures Up A World Of Almost Faulkerian Richness And Complexity, Said People, And The Chicago Tribune Wrote Simply, O Connell Has Raised The Standard For Psychological Thrillers A Wild Child Turned New York City Policewoman, Mallory Was Adopted Off The Streets As A Small Girl Very Little Has Ever Really Been Known About What Happened To Her Back Then, How She Lived But The Past Is About To Come Alive Crime School Begins With The Discovery Of A Woman Found Hanging In A Burning Apartment, Tufts Of Her Own Blond Hair Stuck In Her Mouth And Red Candles Scattered All Around Immediately, Mallory Knows Several Things The Fire Was Set So The Woman Would Be Discovered The Crime Is Identical To Another One Twenty Years Old And She Knows This Woman She Is A Prostitute Named Sparrow, Who Took Her In All Those Many Years Ago, And Then Betrayed Her There Is Unfinished Business Between Mallory And Sparrow, And The Quest To Settle It Will Send Her Spinning Back To A Time Of Secrets And Desperation, And Into The Mind Of A Criminal Whose Work Has Only Just Begun. Excellent O Connell digs into our brains and hauls out empathy, repulsion, anger, regret, pity, insanity Mallory s world is not one I want to live in, but six books into the series, I feel like a rookie ghost standing by the sergeant s desk at the foot of the stairs leading up to Special Crimes Unit, watching O Connell knows we can never understand the gears that propel Mallory, or the pain that Riker lives with, or the unique and combustible combination of elements that is Charles Butler I Excellent O Connell digs into our brains and hauls out empathy, repulsion, anger, regret, pity, insanity Mallory s world is not one I wan I felt like there was information that I was supposed to already know as I read this book, but somehow I didn t But it was a bit lighter than the last one in the series, and I enjoyed itI might need a happy book break before I start the next one. This was the first Kathy Mallory book I read Apparently this is the 5th book I probably should have read them in order The story was wonderful or should I write the plot , but I didn t get into the characters Also there seemed to be so much that I didn t know about what happened before I ve re Kathleen Mallory is not your typical policewoman First she was a street child until found and adopted by a policeman She uses her gut instinct to solve crimes and takes no guff from anyone Now she is working the murder of a bag lady. Andthis one was back to being great This series is really frustrating one good, one not, one good, one not There s something about it that has caused me to hang in there, butnow I m off to read three books for teen book clubs Maybe I will revisit it after. a woman is found hanged in her apt but what do the red candles and hundreds of flies signify then they find she is not actually dead and is now in hospital in a coma it gets personal as she is sparrow, a prostitute known both to riker and mallorythey pursue this case, together with butler, and find it has a link to an unsolved hanging 2 decades ago also there is another hanging and a further woman is being targeted can they stop this madman in time the usual well depicted characters and this a woman is found hanged in her apt but what do the red candles and hundreds of flies signify then they find she is not actually dead and is now in hospital in a coma it gets personal as she is sparrow, a prostitute known both to rik A most excellent 5 star read Kathy, at some point you need to become human
