    Hooks you immediately and keeps you guessing.

    Through the eyes and entertaining voice of 19-year-old Nina Esposito, this mystery/coming of age story takes you back to New York City circa 1979 when there were no cell phones, Internet, cable, Twitter and all the other trappings of present day life. Author Rosanne Limoncelli does a great job of setting the mood and tone of Greenwich Village and the way life was for a complicated young woman trying to make it as an actress in the big city. Obsessed with death and father figures, Nina finds herself in the middle of a series of murders that are uncomfortably too close to home. Nice twists and turns and an ending you won't guess.

    A love letter to a vanished New York that keeps you guessing

    Sure, this is a fast-moving murder mystery that keeps you guessing till the last page, but it's also a portrait of a different Gilded Age in New York's history -- a time when people unironically laced up their roller-skates and discoed around while giving each other suggestive glances. The author's love for her home, and deep knowledge of the way it can be a young woman's best friend (or worst enemy, depending on her mood and proximity to a possible serial killer), is obvious on every page. I felt for the main character, fell for every red herring, and in the end didn't see it coming, even though I thought I had it all figured out. What a great page-turner -- er, page-clicker. (Page-swiper? I read it on my iPhone.) Thumbs up!
