THE LOST GIRLS OF ROME
Carrisi’s latest novel brims with suspense. The story features several points of view and unfolds like an intricate puzzle over a web of times and places. Initially, the format is a bit confusing, but as the story continues, the connections between various characters become clearer. Detailed descriptions bring to life the process of forensic investigation and profiling.
Forensic analyst Sandra Vega is investigating a case that may be linked to the death of her journalist husband. Although the Rome police ruled his death accidental, Sandra believes that he was murdered to keep him from uncovering a shocking story about an ancient sect of the Catholic Church. Her investigation sets her on a collision course with danger. (MULHOLLAND, Nov., 432 pp., $26.00)
