I’m on a blog break for a house move and upcoming surgery. This is a scheduled post.

Priscilla’s body lay motionless on the couch in front of her. They were blood sisters, but Avery never thought it would end like this – thrust against her will into this dark place.

When the brutal death of a young American theater student in London is splashed across headlines worldwide, NYPD Detective Kelly Moore flies across the Atlantic to join a crack team of British investigators on the case.

Together with the London Metropolitan Police, Kelly must track down a twisted killer who seems to know her every move. As the body count rises, and panic spreads, the killer threatens to make Kelly the next victim.

In a heart-racing game of cat and mouse, Kelly must outwit this elusive master of surveillance – who might be the last person she suspects.

From debut author, Claire Kittridge, comes this page-turning, unputdownable thriller. This Dark Place is the first novel in the Detective Kelly Moore series, introducing a tough streetwise cop who will go to any lengths to catch a killer

I enjoyed reading this well crafted debut novel from Claire Kitteridge and will look forward to reading more from the author. I’m guessing there will be more books featuring the no nonsense NYPD detective Kelly Moore.

With a unique plot, the book moved along at a brisk pace.

With the multi-layered complexity of the relationships of the leading characters, including the victim and the suspects, there was a depth to the story that made it more than just a police procedural. There were mysteries that slowly unravelled. Nothing was as it seemed.

I became quickly absorbed, read it in two settings and the ending took me totally by surprise.

What’s not to like!

There is a new crime fiction writer on the block to follow.
