Publisher's summary

Carol O'Connell's last novel, Dead Famous, made multiple best-of-year lists and won critical acclaim nationwide. "O'Connell brings a hard edge of greatness to the crime thriller," wrote the San Jose Mercury News. "A tough and brilliant action-, wit-, and surprise-packed novel."

But never has Mallory faced as many surprises as in the case before her now. It seems cut-and-dried at first: a burglar has been caught in the act and killed by an ice pick-wielding homeowner. Except that the homeowner turns out to be the most famous lost child in NYPD history, missing for almost 60 years, thought to have been kidnapped following the massacre of her family: five siblings, father, stepmother, nanny, and housekeeper, nearly the entire household wiped out...with an ice pick.

Filled with the intricate plotting and extraordinary characterization that are O'Connell's hallmarks, Winter House is her most powerful, and most astonishing, novel yet.

Critic reviews

"Vivid prose keeps the pages turning in this intricate tale of betrayal, buried secrets, and lives chopped short in the name of greed." (Publishers Weekly)

I miss Mallory...

I have read all the books I could find with this particular central character. I have always really enjoyed the hard edge to Mallory and the many facets to her character. I was disappointed in this book mainly because the Mallory I got to know didn't have the depth I'm used to seeing. Contrary to other reviews, I still found the book enjoyable, but I missed "that Mallory".

Something went wrong. Please try again in a few minutes.
