Summary

A few days before the summer solstice, a 92-year-old woman is found burned to death in her home. On the same day, a man's mutilated corpse is discovered, his arms ripped from their sockets, with a tarot card depicting the Fool inserted in his mouth.

When the victim is identified as someone for whom the police have been looking for almost a year, detectives Anderson and Costello find themselves caught up in a case where nothing is as it seems.

Critic reviews

"Masterful writing, vivid characters, and a highly imaginative, terrifying, and byzantine plot." ( Booklist)

Not one of my favorites

I really enjoy the series but found this book hard to follow with so many different characters coming in and out. The narrator doesn't have the range that I have enjoyed when Cathleen McCarron has narrated. The distinguishing of characters and the storyline was muddied by a blending of voices; there was no real discernable difference between them.
