After spending a delightful weekend at the Cape, NYPD Major Case Squad Chief Detective Jack Reilly and his wife private investigator Regan return to Manhattan. Jack stops for some Chinese take-out while Regan enters their partially renovated apartment where she finds a stun gun on the floor. Obviously someone broke and entered leaving behind evidence. However, a blackout engulfs the city leaving Reilly in the dark. Lorraine Lily is cursing her estrange husband for selling the pad to the Reillys without informing her while she was performing in London. She had a safe built that she needs to open before the Reillys find it or watch her career die.------------------- Not too long afterward Jack is in Soho investigating a theft of valuable sculptures from an art gallery. Meanwhile their friend Kit calls frantically as she says she was with deranged Georgina at a comedy club when the woman vanished just as the blackout occurred they know Georgina hates and hurts blond men.. Regan gathers a group to find them before her date is branded. Ironically the person who broke into her apartment and left the stun gun behind helps on the search------------------- The chance meter is stratospheric as a series of coincidences especially the final spin stacks the deck. However, fans will not care as Regan works the B&E, Jack the art theft, and together the Georgina branding in a fast-paced suspense crime thriller in which Manhattanites think nothing of a blackout in July as this is somewhat the norm.--------------- Harriet Klausner

This book was terrible. When I was a young girl,I read "The Nancy Drew Mysteries". That was wonderful because I was about twelve years old. This book was geared for a reader of that age. For an adult, not only was the plot ridiculous but it bordered on stupid. For instance, on Page 161, during a total blackout, two of the characters ran out of a hotel suite and took and elevator - duh!! I have read Carol Higgins Clark's books before and tried to give her a chance. No more. They are a waste of time and not even entertaining. Unfortunately, she does not have the talent of her mother. She would never be published if not for her mother's reputation.

    Disappointing!

    I stopped reading Carol Higgins Clark years ago but this book sounded good enough to try again. Really disappointed. The book is not written for an adult, it is written for an immature reader. The plot was flimsy and there were a number of large holes in it, especially for somebody who lived through the 2003 blackout in NYC. Buy it for your 12 year old daughter but don't bother with it otherwise.

    If you want a good mystery, get one of the "In Death" books by J.D. Robb.

    Really didn't care for it. Had too many plots.
    Wore me out trying to unwind it.
