With just three books to
his credit, literary legacy Kellerman (son of Faye and Jonathan) has proven that the apple doesn't fall far from the tree. Unlike most mysteries, his novels are truly character driven and thus completely unpredictable. This utterly fascinating journey about
a person who's growing and changing thanks to the mystery he's stumbled into
is just as riveting for the way it develops as for the final outcome.
A strange man named Victor Cracke, who lived in one of his father's apartment buildings for decades, has disappeared, leaving behind a room stuffed with thousands of incredibly detailed and exquisitely interconnected drawings that hint at great genius (and madness). But finding this amazing treasure propels Ethan down a life-changing path that leads back to the cold cases of five strangled children and a dark web of family secrets. (PUTNAM, Apr., 384 pp., $24.95)
