Read from March 11 to 13, 2010

A woman discovers that her best friend's death is somehow linked to an old mystery that still holds a small New York town in its thrall.
I read this in two days. Goodman is obviously a lit nerd: she lays on the references to literature and mythology a bit thick and the parallels and symbolism are almost too well thought out, but I loved the historical element to the mystery, and the characters are, for the most part, well developed.

Kristen I really enjoyed the first few Carol Goodman books. After awhile they all seem the same, but that happens with a lot of good authors.

This & Lake of Dead Languages are really good for setting a mood.

Felisa Rosa Yeah, I'm enjoying this one. I think I actually ended up with it by way of you---Annie lent it to me and said that you had either recommended it to her or actually given her the book. I can't remember which...
