The online mystery game she plays with her beloved grandfather and friends around the worldWhen a string of strange murders occurs across the city Amanda plunges into her own investigation discovering before the police do that the deaths may be connected But the case becomes all too personal when Indiana suddenly vanishes Could her mother's disappearance be linked to the serial killer Now with her mother's life on the line the young detective must solve the most complex mystery she's ever faced before it's too late. Um YikesSo this is clearly an Allende novel because her style and voice as an author are so distinct There is no doubt in my mind that she wrote this book and that is what is most shocking Isabel Allende wrote THIS bookThis is a crime novel not a mystery but a crime novel If you are expecting a who done it or spot the murderer type of book then definitely go elsewhere This novel is about the process of crime investigation which has never been a prevalent theme in Allende's writing so why all of a sudden did she chose to go down this pathIt is so far out of the author's wheelhouse and good for her for taking risks but in no way is this a successful novel It has overly detailed and complicated characters; pages and pages of backstory for every single person mentioned that derails the story and forces the main plot into a far distant easily forgotten place in the reader's mind The book starts off describing a chilling and bizarre crime that instantly grabs your attention But within five pages the focus is yanked away never to return This book is so bogged down with character study that there is barely a discernible plot for 99% of the novel A tremendous flop And good for Allende If you are going to take a risk do so without compromise She wrote a crime novel and she did it on her own terms and it is an awful awful read Kudos155
