The Glass DemonThe Glass Demon by Helen Grant
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I finished her first book, The Vanishing of Katharina Linden, in a day.  I could not put it down.  It was smart, funny and uber-frightening.  This one ratchets the fright down and isn't funny at all, but is a speeding train of mystery and teen angst and murder!

Lin Fox is yanked off to Germany right when she should be in her last year of high school in England.  Her older sister is in the middle of a crisis, her mother and their younger brother Ru are something of an odd pair of ducks.  It is the father, a medieval scholar trying to get his professorship, who is the one who puts his family in danger with his obsessive need to find the Allerheiligen stained glass.  Glass so storied that many believe it to be cursed if not lost or destroyed hundreds of years earlier.

Faced with mounting bodies, all surrounded by pieces of glass, Lin and her new found (boy)friend Michel try to put it all together before something horrible happens closer to home.  Will she be able to find the Allerheiligen stained glass?  Will she find love?  Will she find the demon?
