Audie Award Nominee, Best Thriller/Suspense Category, 2013
New York Times best-selling author Carol O’Connell has won a wide fan base with her popular novels starring NYPD detective Kathy Mallory. In The Chalk Girl, a little girl is abandoned in Central Park—with her uncle’s body in a tree not far away. Recognizing a kindred spirit in the girl, Mallory takes the case. But her investigation soon leads to a trail of murder and blackmail spanning 15 years.

More, More, More!

I started the Mallory series before I started losing my vision and since I have greedily looked over and over for more of Ms. O'Connell's books on audible. I haven't even finished this one yet and find myself going outside during my lunch hour to listen. This book, as in most of her books, lightly touch that "horror" nerve, but just enough to grab your attention and hold on! I can't decide which I like the most, the Pendergast series by the Preston/Child duo or the Mallory series. High praise indeed! The development of the mystery is classic O'Connell, and the addition of the child really off-sets Mallory's pecular personality. I highly recommend this book and anxiously await more books by O'Connell on audible!

A must read!!

The Chalk Girl has little bit of everything, suspense, thriller, and paranormal. The book kept you guessing until the end. I liked the way Mallory connected with the child in this series. Also the narrator brought this book to life.
