About this title
Book by Gallagher, StephenFrom Booklist:
Convicted thief and former heroin addict Molly Gideon has a job and a flat and is trying to build a new life. She believes her sister, Carol, has been brutally murdered by her brother-in-law, Frank, despite how innocent he appears to the police. To Molly and Dr. Valerie Gartin of the Child Trauma Unit, there is a message hidden in Molly's traumatized young nephew Jack's painting: the "painted bride" as he calls it, is his mother--Carol--throat slit, bleeding on the kitchen floor. Dismissed from her job (is Frank behind that?) and in a "dodgy" borrowed Datsun, Molly sets out to gather evidence against Frank, taking Jack and his sister "on holiday" for their safety. Will police believe her interpretation of the painting? Will she protect the children and secure justice for Carol's death? Gallagher's compelling thriller doesn't miss a beat, not even for the occasional puzzling (to Americans) Briticism, and should win him fans eager to read his next outing. Whitney Scott
