ABOUT THIS BOOK
Imagine a quaint little bookshop. Outside the snow is falling. Inside the shelves are stacked with books by authors waiting to be discovered. What could be better?
When Tilly Edgely lands a position working at Ashton’s bookshop in Cambridge she thinks she’s found her perfect job. But one winter’s morning, when she arrives to open up, she discovers the body of her boss suspended from the ceiling, hanging by a rope around his neck.
DCI Barrett and DI Palmer are called to the scene and quickly find themselves searching for a twisted killer whose identity and motive are nearly impossible to trace.
But just when they think they have the murderer in their sights, another body shows up throwing the case wide open…
Who is behind the killings and why?
The police have their work cut out and key to unlocking the gruesome mystery might be found right under their nose.
But one thing is for certain, this killer will leave you hanging…
An absorbing and intriguing murder mystery, MURDER IN THE DARK by Betsy Reavley had all the components to keep me hooked to the very end.
Tilly Edgely has the perfect job in the nicest bookstore in Cambridge and with Christmas on the way, everything seems to be going swimmingly. That is until she arrives at work one morning to find her boss dead. With DCI Barrett and DI Palmer on the case, they are sure that they will uncover this twisted killer and soon but when the body count begins to rise with no apparent connection between the victims, will they be able to solve this case?
As someone who used to work in a bookstore, the premise of this story is what snared my attention and it really worked for me. There is plenty of detective work needed and I have to say that I didn't see the who and the why which always shows the greatness of the writer. The setting and characters are all excellent and while this is a sequel, it can easily be read as a standalone novel which is what I did.
MURDER IN THE DARK by Betsy Reavley is an evenly-paced, gripping read and I highly recommend it to crime fiction and mystery fans everywhere.
Betsy Reavley is the international best-selling author of multiple thrillers, including The Optician's Wife and Frailty. Murder in the Dark is the follow-on to Murder at the Book Club, though can equally be read as a stand-alone. It's a gripping mystery thriller which will appeal to fans of authors like Joy Ellis, Faith Martin and LJ Ross.
