“This was my first book in this series. I am an avid Patricia Cornwell fan, and I love Kaye Scarpetta and friends. I enjoyed "The Front". It was light reading compared to the Scarpetta books. The characters are fresh, fun and interesting. I love the mysterious air about Win. Nana is so...”see full review » see other reviews »

“in Garano, still buying used brand name clothes to impress his boss, D. A. Lamont, gets a new assignment: He has to solve the murder of a young British blind girl in Watertown. The case was never solved and Janine Brolin was killed in 1962. District Attorney Monique Lamont smells a huge press...”see full review » see other reviews »

“I listened to this book on CD. It is a very short book, but I could never really get into it. I read one comment that leads me to believe that this was a stage play that was then made into a book. If that is true, then it would explain many of the problems with the book.
The things I did not like was the short, choppy, incomplete sentences. Poor character development. Confusing plot. And the list could go on. I had the feeling that there was the potential for a good book here, but it certainly was never developed.
I wouldn't recommend.”
“The Front introduces us to Winston Garano, homicide investigator. He works for a very high profile and no frills, Monique Lamont. Previously she had been the victim of a violent crime. A young student newspaper reporter, who is still in college, causes a few things to happen that don't add up. Who is at the basis of all this? An investigation of a Cold Case brings to surface links to the present.”Margie S wrote this review Tuesday, March 12, 2013. ( reply | permalink ) Was this review helpful? Yes | No
“Liked this one better than I expected to - Cornwells bibliography contains both ups and downs I think, and a quick look into this one (laconic narrative, present tense and really short (my edition has 3-8 words per row and is double spaced...)) hinted that this one would not be a hit. However, even though I would very much have liked her to expand on the story (character descriptions, surroundings...) I found myself thinking it was an OK effort.”Thomas Strömquist wrote this review Sunday, February 17, 2013. ( reply | permalink ) Was this review helpful? Yes | No

“Massachusetts state investigator Win Garano is given the job determining if an unsolved murder was committed by the Boston strangler. Why, D.A.
