Heart of the World (The Carlotta Carlyle Mysteries Book 11) Kindle Edition
Praise for Linda Barnes and Carlotta Carlyle: "With every novel, Linda Barnes reminds us of two key facts--she was one of the first and she remains one of the best. "Heart of the World "has everything that Carlotta Carlyle fans have come to expect from this seminal series. Barnes has never been better, and that's saying a lot." --Laura Lippman, author of "To the Power of Three" "Linda Barnes has long been one of the most skilled and artful writers of the crime novel. With "Heart of the World "she proves it and takes it up to a new level. This is her best."--Michael Connelly, author of "The Lincoln Lawyer" ""Heart of the World "illuminates the power of our deepest regrets and the fleeting chances we sometimes get to fill the emptiness in our souls. Writing with sensitivity and grace, Linda Barnes once more demonstrates why ex-cop Carlotta Carlyle has become a treasured mainstay in the field of crime fiction."--Robert Crais, author of "The Forgotten Man" "An astonishing installment in what was already one of the best private-eye series ever."--Harlan Coben, author of "The Innocent "on "Heart of the World" "Nobody knows Boston like Linda Barnes's red-haired private investigator Carlotta Carlyle... Barnes's knack for crisp, snappy dialogue and devising a mystery that has both timeless and contemporary appeal is a winner."--"The Boston Herald" "The savviest, most spirited of three-dimensional heroines."--"Kirkus Reviews" "It's always a pleasure to spend time with this zesty detective... Carlotta has class and spirit to spare..."--"The Baltimore Sun" --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.

Good, but...Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 28 July 2006
I love the Carlotta Carlyle series, but was so disappointed by Heart of the World. It's not that it's bad, it's just that it's very different from the others. It's mostly set away from Boston, so there's far too little of volleyball, TC, guitar playing, cab driving, Gloria, Mooney, Roz, Sam, ... which is such a shame because these are the things that make the earlier books so great. I hope Linda Barnes writes the next one soon - for me the really interesting thing about this story will be finding out what happens next. If you're new to the series, start with A Trouble of Fools, then The Snake Tattoo, Coyote, Steel Guitar, Snapshot, Hardware, Cold Case, Flashpoint, The Big Dig, and Deep Pockets.

When Paolina, Carlotta' s Little Sister, is kidnapped and carried off to South America, Carlotta is hard pressed to deal with her loss like other kidnapping cases. The whole crew gets involved--Mooney, Roz, Gloria and Sam--doing computer searches and using their connections as Carlotta high-tails it to Colombia. Carlotta stirs up one hornet' s nest too many and all hell breaks loose. Paolina is rescued but at a high cost.
Excellent!Reviewed in the United States on 5 April 2018
Love the character Carlotta Carlyle! In this adventure, she must try to save her little sister, and follows her trail to South America. Lots of action, and suspense. The ending surprised me. I loved this series of books, read the whole thing. I wish there were more Carlotta Carlyle books!
The premise supports the plot,but......Reviewed in the United States on 28 June 2019
The plot is lost in the narrative. The story needs lots of old fashioned work. It is a lot of work to read.
