Reviews

  • Booklist Reviews : Booklist Reviews 2019 August #1
    Introverted Irish bookseller Shaun Ryan had been told that his Uncle Teddy Ryan died in Galway years earlier. But when an old friend of Teddy's reveals that he left Ireland for New York, Shaun uncovers his family's lies and starts looking for Teddy through Missing-linc.com, a website moderated by wheelchair-bound Christine Guzman in Nevada that matches unidentified bodies with missing people. With only a blurry photo of Teddy to work with, Chris suspects that he's "the boy in the dress," a young man found dead in a pink prom dress years earlier. The case has been an obsession for Chris' co-moderator, Ellie Caine, since the body was found not far from where she lives in Minnesota with her husband and twin sons. But, as we know from the start, the small core of Missing-linc members who work on the case includes Teddy's murderer, whose mantra is, "You're not a serial killer if you've only killed two people." In a narrative sprinkled with threads of texts, Lotz delves into her characters' backgrounds, clarifying the obsessive behavior that drives some of them. A satisfying thriller that's both quirky and macabre. Copyright 2019 Booklist Reviews.
