Claire Breslinsky comes home, after traveling throughout the world, to Richmond Hill and her engaging family, only to become entangled with a police detective and his investigation into a series of child murders

From Publishers Weekly:

This delightful debut introduces a modern yet traditional New York City family--Stan and Mary Breslinsky and their three daughters: acclaimed photographer Claire, police officer Zinnie and fashion columnist Carmela, plus Zinnie's four-year-old son Michaelaen. All live in the peaceful family home in the Richmond Hill area of Queens, where Claire has recently returned after having worked for years in Europe and Asia. The neighborhood loses its tranquility, however, when a young boy is murdered and mutilated. With her photographer's eye for detail, Claire becomes involved in the investigation, meeting detective Johnny Benedetto, who falls for her. Claire's cameras (perhaps containing incriminating photos) are stolen; another child is killed. Friends and neighbors become suspects, including Zinnie's ex-husband, a restaurateur; a local woman thought to be a witch; and a U.N. diplomat living nearby who shows a sudden interest in all three sisters, particularly Claire. There are disturbing indications that Michaelaen knows something about the deaths--and then he disappears. Kelly escalates the suspense while demonstrating an unerring sense for the nuances of family and other relationships.

From Library Journal:

In this provocative and entertaining but only marginally mysterious first novel, the search for a child murderer plays second fiddle to the everyday lives of a rather bizarre family. Soon after Claire Breslinsky, world wanderer and photographer, joins her two divorced sisters--one a flamboyant fashion journalist, the other an efficient policewoman with four-year-old son--at their parents' home, an old man discovers the mutilated body of a child in nearby woods. This and a subsequent murder, however, remain peripheral to familial jostlings as Claire "finds" herself. Somewhat slapdash at times, but redeemed by the characters and the affecting ending.
