Life Without Parole
STARRED REVIEW! O’Donohue’s outstanding second mystery featuring the freelance Chicago TV producer. – Publishers Weekly
A worthy sequel to the first in the series, Missing Persons (2010), with its strong protagonist, who came close to losing her edge but clearly gets it back.
— Michele Leber, Booklist
The latest Kate Conway amateur sleuth is an exhilarating whodunit with a psychological underpinning. The freshness comes from Kate’s interviews with the two convicts and the contrast between naive Pollyanna Vera and “trust no one” Andres. The mystery is cleverly devised with surprising red herrings, but it is the psychological insight into Life Without Parole that makes this entry a winner.

STARRED REVIEW! A well-constructed plot, credible characters, and an insightful exploration of the grieving process make for an absorbing read.
TOP PICK! There’s not a single sentence in this novel that isn’t thoroughly enjoyable.
-RT Book Reviews
A fine, funny, and felicitous combination of traditional pot-boiler mystery novel and rather touching — even profound –character study.
