Well, this 1995 thriller is a real breath of fresh air! This year my biggest goal is to back up and read a lot of books from “the old days” of the 1990s and early 2000s. It’s so easy to get caught up in the excitement of new releases, but there is also plenty of gold ready to mine gathering dust in the library.

For some reason I have shied away from this series, probably because the title of book 1 scared me off with it’s supernatural feel. But after having so many Goodreads friends sing its prai

DO NOT waste your time on bad first O'Connell book...

The character of Kathy Mallory is introduced in this first of a set of (now) six stories about a NYPD detective. With these and one other hardback under her belt, one would think O'Connell must be a successful author. Not by our eyes! We have read and lectured about an extensive list of leading lady amateur sleuths, private eyes, and policewomen; and we'd have to rate Mallory as maybe the worst. While she's billed a thousand times by her auth

I needed a beach book after reading The Dream of Scipio and this book fit the bill. The rave blurbs on the back cover were by Nelson DeMille and James Patterson, two of my least favorite authors, so I approached this book with grain of salt firmly in hand.

The main character, Kathleen Mallory, was somewhat interesting, but I got tired of reading how beautiful she was, and what an effect she had on men, and her killer green eyes. Sheesh! Can we have an intelligent female detective who isn't a rav

Unfortunately, not for me.

I gave this book a chance as it's been acclaimed by some as a crime thriller with compelling characters, and I love crime thrillers with compelling characters--Henning Mankell's Kurt Wallander series being my personal favorite example--but I just couldn't get into it. The writing strikes me as cliche, and too often the lines seem overwrought to me, as in, describing a dog running, "paws touching lightly to the ground in the perfect poetry of a beautiful animal in motion

MALLORY'S ORACLE

Carol O'Connell

This is Ms. O'Connell's debut novel in her fantastic series featuring the marvelous character, Kathleen Mallory. This is far and away my favorite mystery series. Kathleen is a homeless wild child on the streets of New York where the police chief finds her and he and his wife adopt her. Kathleen grows up to be an independent strong willed computer hacker who is a sergeant in the Special Crimes Unit. She is a detective with a ferocious intelligence, green gun sling

(spoiler alert i wrote this for a discussion on a mailing list at a point in the discussion where spoilers were fair play. so as well as being lengthy it rather gives the plot away. you have been warned.)

Mallory is definitely a totally unreal and completely unique character. I haven't come across a character like her and though I couldn't say that I liked her that didn't affect my enjoyment of the book at all. I liked the technique of having the main character being the loopy one.

I'm glad I bought this at a bargain price. I was lured by the reviews at the back, even my favorite suspense author James Patterson said this book was "so good it will launch her career in one bold stroke". With those words, I was sold. I was really excited to read this thinking it's one of those gripping novels with a masterful writing style, but I was disappointed.

The pace was slow, I don't get what's what most of the time, or maybe I'm not used to the too-suggestive writing style. Mallory's c

I know that what you like to read is subjective. And I have certain deal breakers. This author hit a hot button for me and I won't be continuing her series. Here's why: Now there's a book by Blake Snyder called "Save the Cat" that tells authors how to make a hero heroic by having him or her do something like save a cat to make the reader bond with that person. I get it. And I'm such an animal lover that it's a device that makes complete sense to me. On the other hand, using animals to make a vil ...more

Reading this was sorta like listening to my 6 year old tell me a story. A re-telling in which I'm constantly saying (or thinking), "Wait, what? Slow down, I have no clue what you're saying".

Except this experience was more satisfying than hearing about the size of the bug (orgin unknown) that is crawling on the side of the house.

I had no idea what was going on half the time in this book. Fortunately, it doesn't matter that much because it happens so often that you quit caring. I was really just

Great introduction to what promises to be a rewarding and exciting series. Kathy Mallory moves from computer work with NYPD into fieldwork under the impetus of a quite personal tragedy: her homicide squad "father" has himself been murdered by a serial killer. The victims are old wealthy ladies from the Gramercy Park enclave who are slashed to death in daytime. Is there a financial motive or is this spree the output of a psycho? The draw for this is Kathy's background as a homeless, street-tough ...more

Kathy Mallory is a finely constructed anti-hero. She is lethal, effective and psychopathic.
Saved by Detective Louis Markowitz, her adoptive father and his wife from becoming a finely honed killing machine, Mallory becomes a detective in the Special Crimes Unit in New York.
Mallory has no past - at least none she can articulate. One of the thousands of lost children, the reader is always more haunted by her hinted at past, than she is.

I read this back when it first launched; it's a debut crime, mystery, police procedural; it is extremely unusual, and boasts a most unique character; the first four books in this series left me in a state of complete awe; I cried after book four or five, and then suddenly stopped reading the story. Kathleen Mallory is extremely complicated.

I picked up this book several years ago, and when I checked the back for whoever was writing praise, and I was astonished. Every single thriller writer I admired: Lehane, Lescroart, Connelly, every single one of them praised this debut novel lavishly. I have just finished it for the 3rd time, and again, it simply takes my breath away. Totally and completely original.

An enjoyable mystery with a strong lead character, Mallory, a smart, somewhat anti-social former street kid adopted as a tween by a cop, later to become a cop/hacker, solving mysteries with her Sherlock-Holmes-esque sidekick Charles Butler (who predictably has a crush on her because, of course, she is gorgeous). Like many mysteries, it suffers somewhat from weird unfortunate stereotyping of villains (one of the baddies is an exoticized mixed-race "giantess" whose unusual outward form is clearly, ...more

For an author to be outstanding, she or he must offer something outstanding.
At age 47 Carol O'Connell wrote this, her first book, and she does indeed offer something very special.
I truly envy her; one can spend half a lifetime thinking about that special thing.
O'Connell's 'Mallory', is certainly a character that a large proportion of young women doubtless wish they could successfully emulate. At the same time, male readers can enjoy her, knowing they cannot take part in those vicarious feelings

This is the first book of the very best detective series I've ever read. But since I can't stand crime novels as a rule, this might not be a compelling recommendation for a lover of the genre: It merely states, that this detective story is set apart from the rest.

Usually, the victim is the most interesting character of a crime novel; but since he or she is dead from the beginning, I never get invested into the story. The detective, on the other hand, is someone who the author thinks likable and

Mallory is described by the author as a sociopath. Emotionally scarred as a 6-year-old after she witnessed the murder of her mother in a small Louisiana town, Mallory flees to New York City, where she lives as a street child. She is caught trying to steal by police officer Louis Markowitz, who takes her home and becomes her foster father.

From age 10, Kathy, a "baby sociopath," grows up surrounded by Markowitz and his colorful circle of friends, including his partner, Sgt. Riker, who later become

I've dipped in and out of this series but having read the latest entries decided it's really time to go back to the start and read the books in their correct order. In this first novel we're introduced to Kathy Mallory, one of the most intriguing characters in modern crime fiction: brilliant, beautiful and most probably sociopathic.

O'Connell writes stories which are macabre and twisted, which themselves take the conventional crime genre and twists it into something bolder, cleverer and darker. T

While reading Chalk Girl, I took author Carol O'Connell into my short list of authors I seek out, partly because of Mallory. I formed the opinion Mallory was red-headed in Chalk girl, but in Mallory's Oracle, she's definitely blond. I love abandoned, feral, vicious, brilliant, calculating, cold, beautiful humans. The stock market intrigue in the storyline caused me to begin scanning, but I controlled myself as best I could. If I like an author and a book, I try to read attentively and not speed- ...more

I love O'Connell's Mallory Series. Her books are psychologically complex, gritty police procedurals with a twist: Mallory is basically a sociopath, a child rescued from feral survival on the streets then raised in the foster home of a policeman (Louis Markowitz) and his wife whose love partially civilizes her. Mallory has a unique gift for computer technology paired with high intelligence. The idea of giftedness, psychology and "magic" are all explored in fascinating ways. The series has the gen ...more
