Carol O'Connell is the author of eight previous Mallory novels, including the national bestseller Winter House, and of Judas Child.From Booklist:
TITLR HO'Connell, Carol. After the unprecedented press hype, instant best-seller status, and critical raves garnered by O'Connell's first novel, Mallory's Oracle , it's hard to believe the budding author could produce, scarcely a year later, another book that's just as intense, powerful, and affecting. But it looks like she has. Tough, callous, unrepentant Kathleen Mallory, ragged street urchin turned computer-whiz cop, once again plays the heroine in a story that pits her against a clever (but not clever enough) murderer. Mallory takes a personal interest in the case when the evening news reports that one Kathleen Mallory has been murdered on New York's Upper West Side. Of course, it's not Mallory at all but a case of mistaken identity--the victim was wearing Mallory's blazer. The single-minded cop uses a combination of intuition, intrigue, and some not-quite-legal computer tricks to pursue the killer. But Mallory's old friend Charles Butler, the gentle giant genius, argues that Mallory should use more orthodox methods of simple logic and deductive reasoning, and the two inevitably clash. The plot is highly original and intensely gripping, especially since O'Connell reveals a few more tantalizing tidbits about Mallory's formative years, but it's the characters--Charles, Riker, Coffey, and Mallory herself--who make this story unique. Three cheers for O'Connell, who has now moved from neophyte writer to established literary superstar.
