Montanari’s Rosary Girls came to me after reading Lehane’s A Drink Before War, Pelecanos’ Right as Rain and Crais’ The Monkey… so what I needed was a bit more of blood and evilness.
I bought this book and Shadow Man the same day, and lucky me I picked this one up to read first(why? ’cus Shadow Man is a bit better).
Somebody is killing young catholic girls and that’s all you need to know to try Rosary Girls. Montanary is very good at throwing small clues so that you always think who the bad guy is… you will be wrong, again and again!
Only complaint is that the main characters should have been more real. Don’t get me wrong they aren’t paper-characters, but Montanary doesn’t dig deep enough into the soul of Kevin Byrne and his rookie partner, Jessica Balzano, the way other writers do.
