Kathy Mallory is truly a fascinating character and following her evolution over several novels is quite interesting. One of these days she may graduate to real humanity.
The old Mother Road - Route 66 - is as much a character as it is the setting of this book. O'Connell pays nostalgic tribute to the past in following the old road, where it still exists. This was tr...more
Critics applauded Carol O'Connell's latest installment in the Kathy Mallory series, which contains a riveting plot and compelling characters__especially the mysterious, unpredictable Mallory. O'Connell is a skillful writer who deserves a wider readership, and Find Me may bring her just that. While a few reviewers found some of the details of Mallory's past redundant (since they had been covered in previous books), others felt that the background information made Find Me suitable for readers meet...more

characters; I love the little twists she puts in just when you think
you've got it figured out or that everything is over and done with and
you know the answers. I like that the primary character in this
series, Mallory, is like an old fashioned white hatted sheriff that

despite her "sociopathic" (I don't agre...more

I didnt enjoy this book as much as i enjoy most mysteries. Carol O'Connell is a good writer but i had trouble caring about the story. The Story revolved so much around the cops that it was hard to care about who was killing all the children. Most mysteries i want to know who do it but as kept reading this book i realized it didnt matter. The did make a connection to any of the family members of the children who had been murdered. I Think it may have hel...more

I got this book as a gift since it is known among my friends that I love Grafton's Kinsey Millhone and Cornwell's Kay Scarpetta. So, I thought I'd love Kathy Mallory. Not!
I am aware that there is a series of Mallory's "adventures". I am aware that one needs to read a couple of other books of the series before rendering a verdict. However, this book alone was enough for me to decide that I won't be reading another book by Carol O'Connell.
In this series, Mall...more
