It Happens in the Dark, Paperback


Mallory Book 11: the eleventh NYPD detective Kathy Mallory novel from New York Times bestseller Carol O'Connell, master of knife-edge suspense and intricate plotting. The reviews called it 'A Play to Die For' after the woman was found dead in the front row.

The next night, there's another front-row death. Detective Kathy Mallory takes over, but no matter what she asks, no one seems to be giving her a straight answer.

The only person - if 'person' is the right word - who seems to be clear is the ghostwriter.

Every night, an unseen backstage hand chalks up line changes and messages on a blackboard. And the ghostwriter is now writing Mallory into the play itself, a play about a long-ago massacre that may not be at all fictional. 'MALLORY,' the blackboard reads, 'TONIGHT'S THE NIGHT.

NOTHING PERSONAL.' If Mallory can't find out who's responsible, heads will roll.

Unfortunately, one of them might be her own...
