From one of the most acclaimed crime writers in America comes her most astonishing novel: a story of love, loss, death-and discovery.

Over the course of eight novels, Carol O'Connell and her protagonist, New York detective Kathy Mallory, have carved out a unique place for themselves. But all that has been prelude to the remarkable story told in Find Me.

A mutilated body is found lying on the ground in Chicago, a dead hand pointing down Adams Street, also known as Route 66, a road of many names. And now of many deaths. A silent caravan of cars, dozens of them, drives down that road, each passenger bearing a photograph, but none of them the same. They are the parents of missing children, some recently disappeared, some gone a decade or more-all brought together by word that childrens' grave sites are being discovered along the Mother Road.

Kathy Mallory drives with them. The child she seeks, though, is not like the others'. It is herself-the feral child adopted off the streets, her father a blank, her mother dead and full of mysteries. During the next few extraordinary days, Mallory will find herself hunting a killer like none she has ever known, and will undergo a series of revelations not only of stunning intensity- but stunning effect.

This fully illustrated catalogue brings to light a forgotten masterpiece of Regency sculpture - the beautiful and mysterious Capriccio by the Italian gem-engraver and medallist Benedetto Pistrucci (1783-1855). Thought lost since 1855, the Capriccio is an enigmatic composition of heaped-up fragments brilliantly carved from a single block of white marble. The very recent emergence of this mysterious sculpture is considered to be one of the major recent reiscoveries in British sculpture.
The catalogue accompanies an exhibition at Sir John Soane's Museum and at the Waddesdon Manor in 2006. Tim Knox is director of Sir John Soane's Museum.

Worst book I have ever finished. I kept hoping she could pull it off, but apparently, when a writer has nothing to say and is bored to death with her character, she goes on a road trip and just writes a string of consciousness journal occasionally inserting her characters. I should have put it down after chapter two, but hope springs eternal. Skip this one and move on the the next--unless you are totally obsessed with Rt. 66.

Although I've enjoyed most of the books in this original series, this is one of the best. Facts about Mallory's life before New York have been few & far between but we finally get some answers in this story, interspersed with a cracking good plot about the race to catch a serial killer. As usual, there are a few surprises waiting for you at the very end.
