Publishers Weekly, 2006-07-31 This third installment of the Tally Whyte series (The Dead Stone, Body Parts) begins with a very bad day for Stiefel's steadfast heroine: her dog is being tested for cancer, her mom is hospitalized with the flu, and someone has broken into her office and delivered a murdered little girl. Though corpses aren't exactly out of the ordinary in Massachusetts's Office of the Chief Medical Examiner the "Grief Shop" where Tally directs the state's Grief Assistance Program this victim was somehow secreted into the secure facility by her killer, suggesting that one of the Grief Shop's own is involved. The only clues to the girl's death are a message written on her palm in marker "Sins of the Father" and a toy lamb left behind after someone knocks Tally cold in the OCME's decomposition room. Already feeling the rigors of her grim job wearing at her resolve, Tally is rocked by the mystery and the possibility of a criminal among her colleagues and it doesn't help that her out-of-commission mother is also her boss, the chief medical examiner. Tally is a compelling protagonist edgy, compassionate and vulnerable with a clipped narrating style that keeps the tricky plot in focus. Stiefel's latest shows again that she can hold her own against genre heavyweights like John Sanford and Patricia Cornwell. (Sept.) Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
