Oh boy, I can tell that I am going to read every one of this series. Starts out dark and somehow gets darker and even more compelling. Not only are we treated to two separate mysteries in this first installment, I was fascinated by all extras----little vignettes that are fleshed out enough and so well done that they stand as short stories included in the overall work. Some may have found this distracting---I considered it a bonus.
Mr. Connolly can sure write. Take the noir and darkness of Elroy and Lehane and add a supernatural twist and you have an original series by a singular voice.
Can’t wait to read Dark Hollow.
