The definition of an owl had always pleased him: a night bird of prey...sharp talons and soft plumage which permits noiseless flight...applied figuratively to a person of nocturnal habits. 'I am The Owl', he would whisper to himself after he had selected his prey, 'and nighttime is my time.'"

Jean Sheridan, a college dean and prominent historian, sets out to her hometown to attend the twenty-year reunion of Stonecroft Academy alumni, where she is to be honored along with six other members of her class. There is something uneasy in the air: one woman in the group about to be feted, Alison Kendall, a beautiful, high-powered Hollywood agent, drowned in her pool during an early-morning swim. Alison is the fifth woman in the class whose life has come to a sudden, mysterious end.

Adding to Jean's sense of unease is a taunting, anonymous fax she received, referring to her daughter -- a child she had given up for adoption twenty years ago.

At the award dinner, Jean is introduced to Sam Deegan, a detective obsessed by the unsolved murder of a young woman who may hold the key to the identity of the Stonecroft killer. Jean does not suspect that among the distinguished people she is greeting is The Owl, a murderer nearing the countdown on his mission of vengeance against the Stonecroft women who had mocked and humiliated him, with Jean as his final victim.

Today was a beautiful sunny day in Buenos Aires, a great day for drinking my favourite coffee (Vainilla latte), for eating a blueberry muffin (mmm, delicious) in Starbucks, while reading this suspense thriller, of course.
I really wanted to know who the owl was and I enjoyed reading this book.
Thanks again footymadgill for your kind gesture!

7 out of 10

I must admit that I started this book with rather low expectations. I have recently grown a little tired of detectives and it was the first one I attempted in a while. However I did enjoy it.
The characters seemed well crafted and the story was built up very well. Clark keeps feeding you little snippets of information that make you think: I know who The Owl is, but still I was never quite correct. The ending was good, although the epilogue made it just a little 'cheesy' for my taste.
(Edited to say: In the beginning I did mix up the names of all the male honorees. They were all a little bit strange and nerdy growing up, so I had problems keeping them apart.)
Thanks again for sending it to me Marilina.
