I really liked this book. There are interesting twists and turns and information about Mallory we didn't hear before. O'Connell is my new favorite author. I am devouring every one of her books (and sharing them with others!)

I really love the Mallory series. Not only is it a great read, but O'Connell is really a very good writer. I also enjoy being in the inner circle on all of the details she doesn't bother to explain...like Mallory's early childhood, the poker game, etc.

for anyone who likes Mallory they will enjoy this book. A hooker who knows Kathy is hanged and they go back in time to delve into more of early Kathy's life before and after Markowicz. Very good book

The most creative author I've read. The Mallory character is totally unique. A sociopathic female cop, who'd have thought.

Wow (do people say wow today?). I've always liked Carol O'Connell's "Mallory" series and this is the best one yet. O'Connell just takes a ball of yarn and unravels it; then rolls it back up. Some of Mallory's life as a street urchin is revealed which almost makes her human. But then maybe not. "Kathy, can you fly?"

It's a bit slow at the start, but, like all the Mallory books, it gets very good as you get further into the story.

Carol O'Connell is such a different type of crime/thriller/mystery writer. I love her writing - you just fall into it, it's much more "literary" than others in her genre. This is the second one I've read (first was Judas Child, also highly recommend!), and I will definitely look for more by her. I don't think she gets the credit she deserves!

This is my first book by this author and I really enjoyed it! Now I need to figure out which book was the start of the Kathleen Mallory series so I can catch up-LOL!

Crime School fills in the blanks with this complex tale about Mallory's efforts to solve the attempted murder of the knife-wielding prostitute who once sheltered and later betrayed her--a copycat crime nearly identical to another that occurred two decades ago. Fans of this series and its unique, complicated, steely protagonist will welcome O'Connell back to the bestseller lists after a protracted absence, while those who've been waiting for the emergence of a kinder, gentler Mallory, able to return the affections of those who love her--like Charles Butler, the quirky criminologist whose unrequited adoration of Mallory knows no bounds, and her partner, Riker, who's known her since his old friend Markowitz plucked her off the streets--may be disappointed. --Jane Adams --This text refers

I might have enjoyed this book much more if I had read the previous ones in the series first. I found the characters to be very strange and the story strange, convoluted and slow. I finished the book because I was curious to find out who the perpetrator of the crimes was, but although a street urchin-turned-cop is certainly possible, it didn't convince me in this book. I think it was a matter of just not liking this cop.

A fire is called in. The fire department arrives to find a prostitute hanging by a rope from a chandelier in her apartment, her hair chopped off and stuffed in her mouth. Some of the details seem to recall a similar murder twenty years ago. More murders will follow. Are they the work of a serial killer, one who started killing twenty years ago? Or is it a copycat? Are the cases even connected? The police are working around the clock to solve the cases and prevent further murders, but they're hiding secrets of their own. The complex plot and flawed human characters grabbed me and didn't let go until the final page.
