Publisher's Summary

The nun was dead. Her body lay on the lawn outside Gracie Mansion, the home of New York City's mayor, and it wasn't alone. There were four of them altogether. They'd been killed at different times, in different places, and dumped there. There should have been five - but the boy was missing. Jonah Quill, blind since birth, sat in a car driven by a killer and wondered where they were going. Though he was blind, Jonah saw more than most people did. It was his secret, and he was counting on that to save his life.

Detective Kathy Mallory was counting on herself to save his life. It took her a while to realize that the missing-person case she was pursuing was so intimately connected to the massacre on the mayor's lawn. But there was something about the boy she was searching for that reminded her of herself all those years ago, when she was an orphan adrift in a world over which she had little control, and determined never to let that happen again. She would find him - she just hoped it'd be in time.

Loved this book

Mallory is back in a big way. The plot of the book is gripping, character development interesting, with enough surprises to keep me from wanting to "put the book down"--in fact l stayed up all night listening to chapters 16-33.

Outstanding story and performance!

I've read all the Mallory books and this one is par for the excellent course! No better narrator to read it, either. Barbara Rosenblatt brings everything to life. Very satisfying experience, thank you!

A waste of a good credit!

This book left me bored beyond belief. I kept waiting for the storyline to grab me... But, it never did. I'm not sure if the storyline is the problem or if the narrator is the problem. I will say that the narrator makes the story sound like a sing-song fairytale!

Narrator does poor job

The narrator's voice at times is just a jumble of words. Very hard to clearly understand. The constant rise and fall of her voice is annoying. George Guidall would have done a much job.
