Description

It has been years since Casey Maldonado visited her hometown, and the only reason she's returning now is to get her brother Ricky out of jail, where he sits after being arrested for the brutal murder of Alicia McManus, his girlfriend of several months. Casey believes in her brother's innocence, but proving that to the cops is a different matter altogether—especially since she has her own murder warrant to worry about. Perhaps even more frightening than the law is Casey's confrontation with her personal demons: the home she shared with her late husband and son, the resentment of her mother, and even the presence of Eric, who wants to be more than just a friend.

As Casey and her ever-present companion, Death, investigate Alicia's murder, it becomes clear that she was not who she claimed to be, from her name to her nonexistent past. Instead of a solid history, she left only questions when she died. Where did she come from? What secrets did she know? And, most importantly, who were the three people she spoke of when Death carried her away?

Casey must sort the truth from the elaborate fiction of Alicia's life in order to clear Ricky's name, but as she reveals the woman's secrets, Casey begins to see just how alike their lives appear. Is Casey destined to an existence as empty and dark as Alicia's, or can she overcome the tragedy of her past and move forward into a life worth living?

        June 11, 2012
        In Clemens’s flawed fourth Grim Reaper mystery (after 2011’s Flowers for Her Grave), tough-girl crime-solver Casey Maldonado and her sidekick, Death, hitchhike from Florida to her nameless hometown, where her younger brother, Ricky, has been charged with murdering Alicia McManus, a waitress he’d been dating. In order to prove Ricky innocent, Casey and her “sweet, good-hearted, handsome” new friend, Eric Van Diepenbos, have to untangle Alicia’s complicated, tragic past. In between bashing baddies with her hapkido training, Casey suffers such grief over her dead husband and baby son that she wants Death to take her. She also fights to keep her hormones under control when in Eric’s presence, but the sex role reversal of hard-boiled detective and gentle supporting pal never quite comes off because Casey’s too snarky with Eric and he’s too forbearing for their mutual attraction to be convincing. The self-conscious reverberations of classic detective fiction dwindle off into a few feeble whimpers.
