  • For fans of police procedural novels

    This is the second instalment in the Detective Preach Everson series, continuing where the first ‘Written in Blood‘ book left off. This time, Preach is investigating the murder of the high school quarterback. He can draw a lot of parallels between this kid’s life and his own at the same age, which makes the case hit particularly close to home. During the investigation, Preach must also deal with romantic strife after reconnecting with his high school crush and finding balance with his girlfriend now that she’s qualified as a prosecutor. Personally, I felt that this aspect of the novel was unnecessary and a bit awkward as it didn’t show Preach off in a remotely good light, making it harder to root for him as a character. It also overshadowed the fact that a teenager has been murdered and his body dumped, something that nobody seems particularly distraught over! The pacing in this novel is quite slow and leads me to think that some of the characters and issues introduced in this book will reappear in later instalments in the series as a common thread, for example the gentrification of small town America that is mentioned multiple times. The mystery itself is quite compelling and with enough red herrings to keep you guessing. I enjoyed the different POVs in this book, giving the perspectives of characters from very different backgrounds within the narratives. I recommend this book for fans of police procedural novels and murder mysteries
