Bolton’s latest Lacey Flint mystery is an all-around hit: scary, twisty and intense. Lacey is frustratingly realistic in her inability to get it together — so much so that you’ll want to shake her and force her to admit her feelings to the brutishly sexy Joesbury already. With this harrowing tale — about child murder; beware, faint-of-heart readers — Bolton again proves she’s a master of mystery.
Still dealing with the aftermath of the Cambridge case, Lacey’s on edge, ignoring Joesbury’s frequent calls and visits to check on her — not to mention his admission of love. Dana and her team of detectives are otherwise occupied: There’s a killer on the loose in London, targeting young boys. Lacey’s young next-door neighbor Barney becomes obsessed with the case, dragging her into the fray. With suspicions swirling and fear running unchecked, will Lacey survive this case?
