Blurb; Amy was once a party girl, but she now lives a lonely life, helping the house-bound to receive communion in the Gravesend neighborhood of Brooklyn. She stops in at one of the apartments on her route, where Mrs. Epifanio, the elderly woman who lives there, says she hasn’t seen her usual caretaker, Diane, in a few days. Supposedly, Diane has the flu—or so Diane’s son Vincent said when he first dropped by and vanished into Mrs. E’s bedroom to do no-one-knows-what.
Amy’s brief interaction with Vincent in the apartment that day sets off warning bells, so she assures Mrs. E that she’ll find out what’s really going on with both him and his mother. She tails Vincent through Brooklyn, eventually following him and a mysterious man out of a local dive bar. At first, the men are only talking as they walk, but then, almost before Amy can register what has happened, Vincent is dead.
For reasons she can’t quite understand, Amy finds herself captivated by both the crime she witnessed and the murderer himself. She doesn’t call the cops to report what she’s seen. Instead, she collects the murder weapon from the sidewalk and soon finds herself on the trail of a killer.
My Review; OMG. I loved this book! I actually devoured it within a single day. A page turner. Brilliant story. I loved Amys character, she may have two sides to her but doesn’t everyone?
I loved how she wasn’t afraid to figure the situation and incident out for herself cause I would have ran! Saying that, she then had the problem of staying out of the polices light and I disapproved of a few things she did along the way.
Will she get the result she has been searching for? Or will she just run away from it all? I think Amy could be a brilliant detective if she puts her mind to it.
Well written, short chapters and fast paced! A well deserved four stars it not everyday that I devour a book this quickly. Highly recommend.
