I found this book to be boring, and very poorly written. Parts of the book were disturbing, and the subject matter just continued to go in that direction. I love a good mystery, but this one fell really short of that. I cannot believe the reviews were so positive. I tried to get thru it and eventually removed it from my Nook.Was this review helpful?

This is one author I will not choose to select a book for reading enjoyment.

Haddam has another winner!
If Jane Haddam could produce a new Gregor Demarkian mystery every month, it wouldn't be too much for me. I love this series. The character development is superb. I feel as though I know the Armenian - American community on Cavanaugh St. as well as I know my own family. I plan someday to read all of these storie in order from first to last. If you love mysteries and haven't tried these, I highly recommend them!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

Good entry in this series
In Philadelphia, the media calls this serial killer, the Plate Glass Killer as carves up the faces of his middle-aged female victims. His count has surpassed ten as he holds the city in fear. However, the police make an arrest as they have caught alcoholic Henry Tyder by the latest crime scene alley with blood all over him that came from the victim. He also confesses to the crimes though his blue blood family and their lawyer says he is harmless and could not murder anyone.-------------- The defense team hires retired former chief of the FBI¿s Behavioral Science Unit Gregor Demarkian to help prove their client is innocent. With assistance from his long time lover Bennis, Hannaford, Gregor ponders why Henry confessed and if his lawyers and loved ones are right about his inability to kill. If this is so then the Plate Glass Killer still roams the back alleys of the city seeking prey. As he develops a profile of the killer over the jealous objections of the lead PPD detectives, Gregor concludes that the predator remains loose with middle age women at risk.---------------- Fans of the series will enjoy the latest Demarkian investigative thriller as the now retired civil servant takes his skills and experience into the private sector. His convoluted relationship with Bennis is handling deftly so that long time readers will appreciate their caring nurturing of one another while newcomers will understand the tender rapport between them. Though the ending is twisted more than a Philadelphia pretzel with mustard making it feel implausible even to this gullible reviewer, the audience still will enjoy the deepness on several levels of GLASS HOUSES.------------ Harriet KlausnerWas this review helpful?
