After the screen of a run-down drive-in movie theater collapses and kills four people, the daughter of one of the victims asks private investigator Cal Weaver to look into a recent break-in at her father’s house. Cal discovers a hidden basement room where it’s clear that salacious activities have taken place—as well as evidence of missing DVDs. But his investigation soon becomes more complicated when he realizes it may not be discs the thief was actually interested in....
Meanwhile, Detective Barry Duckworth is still trying to solve two murders—one of which is three years old—he believes are connected, since each featured a similar distinctive wound.
As the lies begin to unravel, Cal is headed straight into the heart of a dark secret as his search uncovers more startling truths about Promise Falls. And when yet another murder happens, Cal and Barry are both driven to pursue their investigations, no matter where they lead. Evil deeds long thought buried are about to haunt the residents of this town—as the sins of the past and present collide with terrifying results.
|This is the second book in the trilogy and I did not read the first one. I will say that this story has moments of suspense and mystery and you along with the two main characters are trying to come up with some answers. Though this is at times a gripping story the ending being a cliff hanger and having to wait for the third book to come out is a problem for me. I do have problems with cliffhangers, but this time I think it was me not reading the entire description. So because of that this is still a very good book with a good storyline and good characters. I do not want to get into the story to much because I tend to give it away, but the beginning part at the drive in brought back memories of a time when we would go on Friday and Saturday nights, a much different time back then. Overall a good book. I got this book from netgalley. I gave it 3 stars. Follow us at www.1rad-readerreviews.com|
