"Books Fall Open, You Fall In"
I rated this book 3 1/2 out of 5 stars.
I received this book free from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
Taylor Bridges is a park ranger who has suffered a great loss in his life. Feeling that his ghosts are now in his past, he agrees to assist in a case where a young woman’s remains are found by 2 hikers looking for a lost gold mine. As he combs the area he discovers that the woman may not be the only victim. What he stumbles upon is a killing ground where the evidence strangely points to a deranged preacher who ruled over The Falls over a century ago. After a witness and a policewoman disappear, it is apparent that the dark history of the place is still alive and well.
This is the first book I have read by this author and I doubt it will be the last. It’s difficult to write a review without giving most of the best parts of the story away so I will just make this short and to the point. This story was engaging from the beginning and had lots of twists and turns. The characters were well developed and each was damaged in their own way making it about more than just a murder investigation. The family secrets that surface as well as the heavy burdens some of the characters carry make this dark tale an interesting and engrossing journey.
