Summary
"Before Lisbeth Salander, there was Kathy Mallory. The little girl appeared in Central Park: red-haired, blue-eyed, smiling, perfect-except for the blood on her shoulder. It fell from the sky, she said, while she was looking for her uncle, who turned into a tree. Poor child, people thought -- until they found the body in the tree. For Mallory, newly returned to the Special Crimes Unit after three months' lost time, this girl will lead her to a story of extraordinary crimes: murders stretching back fifteen years, blackmail and complicity and a particularcruelty that only someone with Mallory's history could fully recognize."--
