End of Story

Genre: Mystery and Thriller, Fiction; Author: Peter Abrahams; Status: In Season; Publisher: Morrow

As she teaches a writing course at a maximum-security prison in upstate New York, bartender Ivy Seidel investigates her star student’s crime.

Stock Character Prison guard Sergeant Tocco, ”a man with a salt-and-pepper mustache, three stripes on his sleeve and a Styrofoam cup of coffee, almost lost in his hairy hand.”

Body Count Four.

Bottom Line Though the plot is gratifyingly complex, Ivy is curiously bland and almost unlikable.
