Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:
Carol O'Connell's last novel, Dead Famous, made multiple best-of-year lists and won critical acclaim nationwide. "O'Connell brings a hard edge of greatness to the crime thriller," wrote the San Jose Mercury News. "A tough and brilliant action-, wit-, and surprise-packed novel." But never has Mallory faced as many surprises as in the case before her now. It seems cut-and-dried at first: a burglar has been caught in the act and killed by an ice pick-wielding home owner. Except that the home owner turns out to be the most famous lost child in NYPD history, missing for almost sixty years, thought to have been kidnapped following the massacre of her family: five siblings, father, stepmother, nanny, and housekeeper -nearly the entire household wiped out . . . with an ice pick. Filled with the intricate plotting and extraordinary characterization that are O'Connell's hallmarks, Winter Houseis her most powerful-and most astonishing-novel yet.
When a serial lady-killer is found dead, Kathy Mallory and Detective Sergeant Riker are called in to investigate. An elderly female resident of Winter House confesses, but Winter House is the site of a 60-year-old massacre and doesn't give up its dead so easily.
