Overview

In her sixth case, police detective Marti MacAlister, a widowed mother recently engaged to a paramedic, investigates the death of a young Chicago woman found along the rocky shore of Lake Michigan in Lincoln Prairie. The woman's injuries indicate foul play, but Marti and her partner, Vik, have no strong evidence against the prime suspect, the victim's drug-dealing boyfriend. Meanwhile, a homeless man and part-time snitch named Isaac hasn't seen his buddy Dare on the street in a week, and Marti knows the missing man stayed in an abandoned building near the murder scene. What Marti doesn't know is that while she's working hard to stop one killer, another from the past has her family in his sights. Unless Marti can outsmart them both, she will lose everything she has worked so hard to protect.

Editorial Reviews

Chicago Tribune
MacAlister is the real deal.
Minneapolis Star Tribune
Fast-paced and edgy...a strong series.
Library Journal
Detective Marti MacAlister, of the Lincoln Prairie police department, wonders how she and her partner will find the murderer of a young woman who "fell" to her death on the rocky shores of Lake Michigan. A homeless black man has not seen his best friend in days and wonders what has happened. And a crafty stalker wonders how best to massacre Marti, her kids, and her housemates. Bland handles with ease all of these complicationsincluding fianc, school problems, and ghost sightingsadding a credible, realistic, and entertaining volume to a successful series (Keep Still, St. Martin's, 1996).
Kirkus Reviews
Halloween week is anything but festive for Det. Marti MacAlister and her partner Vik Jessenovik. There's the case of pregnant Ladiya Norris, who came all the way from Chicago to Lincoln Prairie to fall, or get pushed, from a bridge to the beach below. (Her unsavory married boyfriend, Barry Knox, has enough strikes against him, from drug-dealing to wife-beating, to motivate a dozen homicides.) There's the case of Daren, (George Washington Jones), missing buddy of Marti's streetcorner snitch Isaac, who's convinced that he didn't just move onhe was moved. There's the case of the pumpkin-suit flasher, a seasonal wacko who hasn't been caught in seven yearsand won't be this year unless Marti and Vik can bring themselves to team up with a pair of vice cops as lazy as they are inept. There's trouble at school with an iron-willed teacher determined to split up Marti's son Theo and her fianc‚ Ben Walker's son Mike, even though they've gone all through school together. There's the self-lacerating search of Marti's housemate Sharon for true love, or whatever she can find instead. But the biggest threat is one Marti doesn't even know about: the stalker who's moved into her house part-time in preparation for executing her whole family. Bland's blunt honesty about her characters' conflicted emotions makes this the best of Marti's six cases (Keep Still, 1996, etc.) to date, even though individual storylines stay stubbornly distinct.
From the Publisher
"With this compelling page-turner, Bland firmly establishes her credentials as one of today's most talented mystery writers."-Library Journal (starred review)

"She's anything but bland...Sharp and sassy and right on the money." —Lawrence Block
