UNDER A SILENT MOON
Genre: Mystery/Suspense/Thriller, Mystery, Suspense
Haynes’ series — the platform for her newest character, DCI Louisa Smith — flings readers into a compelling mystery centering around a small village. But more than that, it’s a fascinating look at the forensics department working hand in hand with the police. Haynes deftly weaves together the instructional style of most police procedurals and a taut, suspenseful mystery. It’s a captivating tale of jealousy, madness and murder that readers won’t be able to put down.
When police are called to investigate two deaths — one a suspected murder and the other a suspected suicide — Louisa is tossed into the first major case of her career. It’s not long before Louisa and her team discover the link between the deaths of the two women with the help of a first-rate forensics team. Louisa is also handling a colleague and former lover’s interest in rekindling their relationship. (HARPER, Apr., 368 pp., $25.99)
