Publisher's Summary

A mutilated body is found lying on the ground in Chicago, a dead hand pointing down Adams Street - also known as Route 66, a road of many names and now of many deaths.

A silent caravan of cars, dozens of them, drives down that road, each passenger bearing a photograph, but none of them the same. They are the parents of missing children, some recently disappeared, some gone a decade or more, all brought together by word that children's grave sites are being discovered along the Mother Road. Kathy Mallory drives with them. The child she seeks, though, is not like the others. It is herself, the feral child adopted off the streets, her father a blank, her mother dead and full of mysteries.

During the next few extraordinary days, Mallory will find herself hunting a killer like no one she has ever known, and will undergo a series of revelations of stunning intensity and effect.

    "some will some will not"

    For the money this was a pretty good listen. The female character may have been a little unbelieveable , but heck it is a book.
    In spite of the subject matter, it did not have to many horrible child murder moments.
    Would make a darn good movie.
    A truly wonderful ending.

    "An Interminable Loser"

    A first review for me, but this was such a poor story I just have to speak up. It rambles more than old Route 66, with a protagonist I neither liked nor could find empathy for. Too many things were never really solved, too many people conveniently setting themselves up to be killed, etc. I was on a trip with nothing else to listen to or I would never have endured the second half of this plodder. Don't waste your points.

    "Bored and disinterested"

    The story started out as a rambling, inconsistent mess. There was not enough information about the character or storyline to catch your interest. I am 1/2 into the first book and still am confused 'what is the point'. The main character is strange, unfriendly and rude. A brief description about her being a 'street child' may explain her hatefulness, but it does not explain why her foster family took her in and kept her and loved her dearly. If she had been raised with love, it does not explain why she is so pissed off at the world and hateful to everyone. If it does not pick up within the next hour of listening, I'm giving up. The basic premise of the book, as described in the summation, sounds like it should be pretty good. Perhaps a better editor could have helped. But the main character is so unlikeable, I doubt it. This was definately a wasted download...

    "Not"

    I was sorely disappointed in the extremely unbelievable and unlikable character that O'Connell has degraded Mallory into. As a rough around the edges child or young adult the brashness worked, but now she's simply a mean spirited ugly woman. The author had to dumb down the surrounding characters to an insulting degree in order to bring off Mallory's smug egotistical know-it-all persona. Are we really supposed to believe that people would be in awe of and blindly follow a rude, unkind, socially retarded woman just because she has green eyes and nice hair? Totally ridiculous, tedious book.

    "Another lost author - sigh"

    I loved Carol O'Connell's first several books, but the last 4 or 5 sound like they haven't been edited (they could be half the length), and the main character is not evolving at all. Really boring -- I had to force myself to finish it and it wasn't worth it.

    "Disorganized and Confusing"

    I hated Find Me. It was confusing and hard to follow. The scene shifted too often and without proper transition, and there were too many characters. To make matters worse, the author would often call one of the previously named characters by a generic name (like "the old man") so it was unclear who was referenced. I was extremely glad to reach the end of this exhausting and frustrating book.

    "GRABS you, hooks you and pulls you in!"

    Very good book. Author pulls you in, makes you think and even spooks you some in the descriptions chosen. Totally worth purchasing!

    "Reviewing"

    This is a twisting story of one woman's self-discovery. The haunting eyes and mysterious behaviors kept my attention. It's telling of a serial child killer was quite disturbing. Just when I thought I had an idea of who the killer may be, the book takes another turn. The description of route 66 and it's long history was quite interesting also. I would recommend this book to anyone who likes a good mystery.

    "Cries out for a good editor"

    O'Connell is obviously a talented writer with a gift for describing both places and characters with a few deft phrases. BUT--this rambling, inconsistent, incoherent mess cries out for a good editor. If you must experience it, the book would be better read than listened to, so that you can flip back when you reach those "Huh!?" moments. But I must say the narrator did as well as she possibly could with the material.
