Overview

From the national bestselling author of Dead, White, and Blue and Ghost Gone Wild comes a mystery of intrigue and danger in the world of international art theft. 

Egyptologist Sheila Ramsay develops a newfound interest in MesoAmerican affairs after meeting an outspoken—and attractive—Mexico City curator, a harsh critic of museums that deal in stolen art. And her own museum gives her the perfect opportunity to see him again: a valuable Aztec manuscript needs to be returned to its rightful owners, the wealthy Ortega family. 

But things don’t go as planned for Sheila south of the border. An anonymous note threatens her with death if she remains in Mexico City. The curator she longed to see treats her with contempt. And the Ortegas are as mysterious as they are charming. What Sheila has stumbled into is much bigger—and more deadly—than she ever dreamed. And amid the splendor of Mexico’s ancient ruins and treacherous hillsides, Sheila will realize that there’s no one she can trust…

    Carolyn Hart's latest book, Cry in the Night hearkens back to an

    Carolyn Hart's latest book, Cry in the Night hearkens back to an earlier time in mystery writing. Her style and the atmosphere of her writing remind me of greats like Agatha Christie. This book has a young and vibrant protagonist who finds herself in the middle of sinister plot and readers will be delighted. Hart has a knack for making her readers feel like something is around every corner. Her books exude fear and mystery. Her style is somewhat Gothic but still appealing to a younger set of cozy mystery readers.

    What I liked: 

    I liked lead character Shelia Ramsey a lot. She was young, but she had a good head on her shoulders. She is extremely intelligent and she knows her work. I thought it was interesting that Hart makes her an Egyptologist but gives her the role of solving a Meso-American mystery. Regardless she knew her stuff, but she was very impressionable and found herself enamored with a Mexican museum curator. I thought Hart developed Shelia's character well and readers get to see her change grow throughout the book. I liked that she figured out that Jerry was not the man for her and that someone else could possibly be.

    The mystery itself was interesting and there were lots of things going on. At times it felt like there were more motives than people who could have pulled them off. I thought Hart did a great job of showing how more than one thing could have happened. It was reminiscent of a good game of clue. I kept waiting for Shelia to say something like, "it must have been Professor Plum in the library with the wrench." LOL!

    I always have a heard time deciding if I think Carolyn Hart's books fit into the cozy genre. They are not overly graphic and there certainly isn't a lot of sex in them. The protagonist is usually a female and she usually has another career. So, Cry in the Night definitely meets the criteria, where some of Carolyn Hart's books do not. 

    What I didn't Like:

    I felt like this one was kind of all over the place. One minute I was glued to the pages and waiting with baited breath to see what would happen next and other times it dragged and there were confusing and unnecessary details. I liked Shelia, didn't like Jerry and was on the fence about Tony. It was just a hard book to get a feel for. Overall I think I liked it, but it just wasn't as good as Hart's Death on Demand series or her other books of late.

    Bottom Line:

    I would recommend this one, to readers who like Christie. To those who like Carolyn Hart's writing in general and those who like a Gothic atmospheric mystery. But it may not be what everyone enjoys reading. Give it a try and see what you think!
