Fiction | Mystery
A blind child and a Catholic nun disappear from a city
sidewalk in plain sight of onlookers. There, then gone—
vanished in seconds. Those who witnessed the event still
cannot believe it happened.
It was all too real. Mallory and the NYPD’s Special Crimes
Unit enter the investigation when the nun’s body is found
with three other corpses in varying stages of
decomposition left on the lawn of Gracie Mansion, home to
the mayor of New York City. Sister Michael was the last to
die. The child, Jonah Quill, is still missing.
Like Jonah, the police are blind. Unknown to them, he is
with a stone killer, and though he has unexpected
resources of his own, his would-be saviors have no
suspect, no useful evidence, and no clue—except for
Detective Mallory’s suspicions of things not said and her
penchant for getting to the truth beneath lies. Behind her
back, the squad’s name for her is Mallory the Machine, yet
she has a dark understanding of what it is to be human. A
child is waiting, time is running out, and atop her list
of liars is the mayor himself…and a theory of the crimes
in which no sane cop could believe.
