In this third of the O’Malley books, Henderson records the story of Lisa O’Malley, a forensic pathologist who works in Chicago (most of the O’Malleys are centered there) and is very, very good at her job. Lisa is actually one of my favorites of the siblings. She has a strong sense of humor and loves animals and her house. Throughout the story, Lisa is working on cold cases, trying to find new leads using more modern technology that wasn’t available at the time of the crimes. Meanwhile, her brother Marcus’s partner, Quinn, is also working on a cold case–the murder of his father.
This was an interesting and intense book, but the conclusion felt a bit weak to me. There was a lot of build up tying several cases together, but the motive was never completely or adequately explained. So while it’s still a good story, it’s not as strong as the others in the series. 3/5.
