LIE DOWN WITH THE DEVIL
A lot has happened to Boston P.I. Carlotta Carlyle prior to the start of this story, so the background information and Carlotta's personal angst over her sister's kidnapping seem extensive. The action and tension increase after the first couple chapters. Overall, the story, told from Carlotta's first-person point of view, has well-developed characters, a steady pace and many twists. Carlotta is a spunky, likable protagonist.
