Reviewed by Laura Hinds

EJ Ferris is a Segway riding mall security cop. No, she isn't a police officer wanna be. Although technically that would be her dream job. EJ is a retired air force cop who was injured in the line of duty, and the mall job is the only one she can find.
Life at Fernglen Galleria is never without drama, but in this book a Hollywood movie is being filmed at the mall. Naturally, EJ's movie star father, Ethan, is the male lead. When one of the crew, the prop master, Zoe, is viciously murdered, EJ's training kicks in as she races to unearth the killer and protect not just the shoppers and shopkeepers, but her father as well.

This novel is fast-paced and I found myself turning page after page long after I'd vowed to turn the light off for the night. The action takes place both in front of the camera and behind the scenes. I especially enjoyed that I had no idea who the killer was until DiSilverio was ready to reveal it. To me, that is the mark of an intelligent author who plots and plans well.

If you've read and enjoyed the first two books in this series, you won't be disappointed by "Malled to Death." Familiar characters abound, including my favorite, EJ's Grandpa Atherton. Hop on your Segway to get your copy of "Malled to Death," or order it conveniently online if the thought of a mall makes you a little nervous.
