DARK ENDING, the sequel to An Unsettled Past, fast-forwards seven years to find Alex now working as a homicide detective with the NYPD. Only recently promoted from patrol, he is thrust into the spotlight as the lead investigator on a series of grisly murders after several young women are discovered in Prospect Park; strangled and mutilated. The investigation gets more personal after several more victims appear, each having cryptic messages from the killer.
Alex can’t shake the lingering feeling that somehow his troubling past, the one he thought he buried at the secluded cabin in Colorado has somehow resurrected itself and followed him to New York.
In the end, it’s a race against the clock to find the killer and piece together the clues before he strikes again. But will Alex succeed or will this be the concluding chapter in his tumultuous life?
This book is going to throw any reader that reads it. I know it did me. I truly did not see what happened coming and I believe no one else will either.
This is one of those books that leaves you on the edge of your seat. It leaves you wanting the next book immediately because you just have to know what is going to happen next. It is also one of those books that leaves you not only shocked but heartbroken also.
This book has so many twists and turns in it that you do not know if you are going left or if you are going right. C.L. Brees did such an incredible job on this book that you just cannot put it down when you are reading it.
I did not read the first book in this series but the good thing about this series was I was not lost having not read the previous book. I love when a series is like that. I will be definitely reading the next book though. I am really looking forward to seeing what C.L. Brees will have happen next.
If you are looking for a book full of mystery and suspense then this is the book for you. I look forward to more by this author in the future that is for sure.
