Publisher's Summary

From this acclaimed writer comes a new thriller of knife-edge suspense and masterful plotting.
The little girl appeared in Central Park: red-haired, blue-eyed, smiling, perfect - except for the blood on her shoulder. It fell from the sky, she said, while she was looking for her uncle, who turned into a tree. Poor child, people thought. And then they found the body in the tree.
For NYPD detective, Kathy Mallory, there is something about the girl that she understands. Mallory is damaged, they say, but she can tell a kindred spirit. And this one will lead her to a story of extraordinary crimes: murders stretching back 15 years, blackmail and complicity, and a particular cruelty that only someone with Mallory's history could fully recognise. In the next few weeks, Kathy Mallory will deal with them all... in her own way.

Appallingly Tedious

If this book wasn’t for you, who do you think might enjoy it more?

A thriller in the classic style of who did this gruesome crime. Should have been good.

What was most disappointing about Carol O'Connell’s story?

The misogyny. The women were all described as a bitch at one point or another and all described as 'the blonde' or 'the socialite', boring and trite. Carol whoever is NOT a woman.

What does Barbara Rosenblat bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

Rosenblat is a consumate actor and reader. Wonderful, wonderful voice and sublime acting with a dreadful script.

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The Chalk Girl?

Oh, it needed a lot of character building for the okay plot to work.
