It's a beautiful spring day in the little city of Holloman, Connecticut; the year is 1967, and the world teeters on the brink of nuclear holocaust as the Cold War goes relentlessly on. But Holloman has other things to worry about on April 3rd, 1967; 12 murders have taken place on one day. Suddenly Captain Carmine Delmonico, chief of detectives, has other, more important matters to occupy him than finding a satisfactory name for his infant son. With his cohorts Abe Goldberg and Corey Marshall giving him unfailing support, Carmine embarks on what looks like an insoluble case.

    " Could have had a better ending..still a good read! "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 April | 2/8/2014

    " There were so many things wrong with this. Truthfully the plot wasn't bad but everything else was. I swear I've liked other things by her. I wonder what's wrong. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Vickie | 1/22/2014

    " I enjoyed it was entertaining and had all kinds of twists and crime... I think Arson was the only thing that didn't happen in this book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Pam | 1/7/2014

    " When an author can stretch out all the mysteries in a book until the last sentence she deserves a five star rating. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Harry Lane | 12/25/2013

    " Good read, very twisty plot. I seldom read books for a second time; this was an exception. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Abhilasha | 12/23/2013

    " Plot was great, though the story forward wasn't that great. It kept me hooked nonetheless... So might not be the greatest piece of thriller, but wasn't disappointing either.. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Linda | 12/7/2013

    " I picked this up off the New Fiction shelf at my library. I did finish it, however, it wasn't great. The story moved a bit slow. Like her earlier book featuring this main character, it does have a little twist at the end. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Zoe Jussel | 11/25/2013

    " A very well written mystery with protagonists you can't help liking and admiring. It was a mystery clear to the finish, but also a deep involvement in relationships. Beautiful writing, intelligent writing and a flair for description and words. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Leslie | 8/17/2013

    " Wow - took me a while to get it done - it was a difficult book to read at times - maybe it was just me - but the sentences had to be reread because I didn't understand them. The storyline however was brilliant - and I very much liked the characters. It was well shaped and dramatic. I liked it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jean | 8/2/2013

    " it was ok. was a bit confusing and a bit hard to follow sometimes. too many murders equals too many characters to track "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Amy | 7/23/2013

    " I thought the plot line was too convoluted, but liked the characters so much I would not hesitate to pick up another in the series. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Rae | 4/21/2013

    " Not impressed. I expected more from the author of the Thorn Birds "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Drachen | 2/22/2013

    " Another excellent crime novel. Very unputdownable! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jane | 10/12/2012

    " Another one with an uh-oh ending. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kuna | 8/26/2012

    " Got a bit confusing because there were too many murders. Slow moving. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Carolyn | 5/18/2012

    " Like the first in this series (_On, Off_) this one has so many characters I had to make notes of who's who. This one dragged in a few spots, but it's well written and well plotted, and again, with a shocker of an ending. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Maureen Harris | 4/12/2012

    " Stilted, contrived, and not believable. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Irene | 1/27/2012

    " audio -- Slow and I dislike when the investigators have no flaws and are perfect. I dislike the pace of the book and that there is no background to these gruesome murders. The victims here are the readers. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Joanne | 6/23/2011

    " I liked this book but can't say that I loved it. Too many names to keep track of - I found myself in the middle of the book having to backtrack to remember who was who "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Harry | 3/16/2011

    " Good read, very twisty plot. I seldom read books for a second time; this was an exception. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Pam | 2/7/2011

    " When an author can stretch out all the mysteries in a book until the last sentence she deserves a five star rating. "

    " Loved it, loved the period and the different story line. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Robyn333 | 1/14/2011

    " really loved it couldn't put it down. Lots of twists and the end always has an accomplice who might be back!1 "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Deirdre | 8/19/2010

    " Too many characters--an alternate title. I did find myself getting lost here and there because I couldn't keep track of who was who, and though the build-up was good, I felt like it peaked too soon and fizzled up to that peak. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 April | 8/9/2010

    " There were so many things wrong with this. Truthfully the plot wasn't bad but everything else was. I swear I've liked other things by her. I wonder what's wrong. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Carole | 7/3/2010

    " I was surprised to read a mystery book by Colleen McCullough, especially such a good one. One of my best-remembered books from "back in the day" was THE THORNBIRDS, but subsequent books by McCullough disappointed me. Now I want to reread THORNBIRDS to see how I like it at this age. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Al | 6/28/2010

    " I don't understand this woman's writing. Strange book. Doesn't make a lot of sense. "

    " This is a fun, interesting read. Not too deep, but good. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Ruth | 5/16/2010

    " Alternate title could be Too Many Characters … and I don't really like a one of them thus far.

    OK. Finished it. Well, I sort of skimmed through the last few pages. Must try and remember to not read anymore McCullough mysteries ~ one of us doesn't satisfy the other. "

    " Loved this one. Very complex and loved how they all tied up together "
