Quotes & Awards

  • “O’Connell has raised the standard for psychological thrillers.”

    Chicago Tribune

  • “Before Salander [of the Millennium series] took the world by storm, there was Mallory, the most gloriously original heroine to grace crime fiction’s meanest and darkest streets.”

    Sarah Weinman, Confessions of an Idiosyncratic Mind

  • “O’Connell’s wonderful Mallory novels are among the best crime fiction ever written.”

    San Jose Mercury News

  • “Connell offers more than a suspenseful tale; she portrays a complex world of dark and light, corruption and love, in a New York City that retains its grittiness. Another must-read in a compelling and rich crime series.”

    Library Journal

  • “A complex, gritty thriller that is at once hard to take and hard to put down.”

    Kirkus Reviews

  • “O’Connell’s awesome ability to weave a taut, complex plot works with Mallory’s equally awesome detective skills as she unearths each crystalline facet of crimes both past and present.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • The Chalk Girl is an event of sorts—any Mallory book is—and works decently as a stand-alone…Like the Dragon Tattoo books it abounds with malicious familial relationships, damaging psychological histories, bizarre acts of cruelty, and small talk tinged with sadism. What offsets this nastiness is Ms. O’Connell’s elegant wit.”
