Genre: Mystery/Suspense/Thriller, Mystery, Procedural

RT Rating

One beautiful aspect of a Kellerman mystery is how seemingly unrelated threads are eventually woven together to form a thoroughly intriguing design. Here, Lt. Milo Sturgis is the key player and Alex, like readers, is an observer. Escape reality and venture into this amazingly twisted and utterly absorbing tale of obsession, greed and passion.

The discovery of two lovers brutally murdered inside an unfinished mega-mansion opens up a host of questions. Discovering their identities and who actually owns the abandoned construction site is even a challenge. Big money is obviously involved, but when the informational roadblocks go up, it appears that international politics may be in play. Undaunted, Milo grabs each small thread and pulls until he gets a reaction. As Milo and Alex quickly learn, this twisted case has an oddly linked cast. Passion, revenge, arson and cultural mores blend and result in a monstrous brew. (BALLANTINE, Oct., 368 pp., $28.00)
