The remains of five women lie within, each one buried with a bridal veil...and without her ring finger. Once an award-winning journalist, Carson knows her career is now hanging by a thread. This story has pulled her out of a pit of alcohol and self-loathing, and with justice and redemption in mind she begins to investigate. Days later two more bodies appear, begging the question... Is a copycat murderer terrorizing Biloxi, or has a serial killer awoken from a 25-year slumber?

    "One of 2007's best mysteries"

    I don't see much point in rehasing the plot, but I found this to be a wonderfully atmospheric novel. Haines does a superb job of creating a mood in which Carson Lynch, her damaged heroine finds her journalistic instincts emerging from the haze of grief that has paralyzed her for the previous 2 years. Carson deserves to take her place along with other unforgetable women of mystery such as Tess Monaghan, Anna Pigeon, Kinsey Milhone, Barbara Holloway, etc. I will be looking for a second episode for Carson.

    The listen was greatly enhanced by the thick as molasses accent of Lauren Fortgang--not a perfect reading, but still quite memorable.

    "Closure challenged"

    I very much liked the heroine of this book. Her strength and vulnerability drew me through the twists of the story rather easily. The suspense aspects were satisfying enough but the book falls far short as a romance (which it was, perhaps, never intended to be - but since I saw it listed as one I think it worth mentioning). There are three love interests presented instead of one and if the protagonist does make a choice, she does so in a later novel. There's nothing I hate worse than to hear 'stay tuned' at the end of the 11th hour of listening so if you're annoyed by this as well - be forewarned.
    I think it a pity the author (or publisher) chose a possible sequel over a satisfying read because there was true potential there.

    "Not bad"

    The reading repeated a couple of times (mistakes with the recording?) and the story was a little pulpy but all in all not a bad book. I would give the author another try, the narrator was so-so, not the best nor the worst

    "Loved it!"

    Loved it! Carolyn Haines is under rated. I came upon her by accident but have really been enjoying her listens.

    "3 of 5 stars"

    I can't finish it... I just can't get to the end of it. The writing is ok, but it's lost amidst the horrible drawl of the narrator. I'm a southern guy and I love southern accents on women as much as the next guy, but the narrator definitely isn't doing this author any favors.

    "Booo"

    I couldn't wait for this book to end... stuck with it to the end waiting for it to get better, but it didn't.
