  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Terrie Sharp | 1/8/2013

    " I love Irene Kelly and this novel was great since Irene is the one waiting by the phone and Frank has been kidnapped. There are layers to this story and the end was very satisfying. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Elaine | 12/24/2012

    " good enough but more improbably than the other Irene Kelly stories I've read "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ryan Mishap | 2/10/2012

    " After Paretsky and Connolly, I place Burke in my pantheon of mystery/crime writers. Her Irene Kelly series gets better almost every book, culminating in Bloodlines, one of the best mystery books ever. Sure, she followed that up with a clunker, but every writer has a bad book. "
