A Private Crime (A Norah Mulcahaney mystery)
A Private Crime - A Norah Mulcahaney mystery Author:Lillian O'Donnell A crime hits too close to home in Norah Mulcahaney's life. The murders of an unwed mother and her infant son raise some unusual questions for Manhattan's Fourth Homicide team, headed by Mulcahaney. Why did a man open fire with an AK-47 on a crowd at an open air flea market? Why were the girl and her child the only ones killed? Why was no one els... more »e even injured?
Randall Tye, a television news anchor, is convinced the killings are drug related. Norah thinks that explanation is too easy.
As their investigations progress, it looks more and more as though Tye is right, and when the baby carriage belonging to the murdered infant disappears from the crime lab...only to be found later with traces of cocaine in its interior..Norah decides she must confront Randall Tye...the man she has grown to love. Was he just guessing about the drug connection, or did he have real evidence to back his claim? But Tye vanishes before answering her questions, leaving Norah to solve what has become, for her, a private as well as a public crime. (Synopsis from dust cover)
Thoughtful and hard-hitting. This is one of Lillian O'Donnell's best. Good read...gives the conscience a little jiggle, but not enough to ruin a very good mystery.« less
