Darkness Falls: A Kate Marshall Thriller
Kate Marshall and her partner, Tristan Harper, are trying to get their fledgling private detective agency off the ground when they are contacted by Bev, the mother of Joanna Duncan, a journalist who disappeared twelve years earlier. Bev needs closure and will do anything to find her daughter. The police have stopped looking, but Bev’s long-time boyfriend Bill is quite wealthy and willing to pay for the search. Bev turns over boxes and boxes of police evidence they have permission to go through. Kate discovers some clues no one ever noticed before, and it looks like there is a serial killer involved. This could be a huge break for not only the case, but also for the detective agency.
Robert Bryndza continues his fascinating series with this third novel. Kate is a smart, savvy character, completely believable, with a great backstory. All the characters are well-developed and will capture the interest of readers in this compelling mystery. There are plenty of red herrings and twists and turns to keep the pages turning. Being set in the mercurial coastal areas of England adds to the mystery and difficulties Kate and Tristan face. This is a well-written winner.
