Challenge: Southern Reading Challenge #3
Carson Ryder and Harry Nautilus are back and I’m glad. I really enjoy this series. This time around they start investigating the brutal murder of a radio newswoman. Soon they fear there is a bizarre and brutal serial killer at work in Mobile, Alabama. Further complications soon arise, many involving a wealthy and powerful family with whom both Carson and Harry seem to have some sort of connection. The tension rises and the twists and turns keep coming and keep the reader guessing.
The occasional humor is still there without taking away from the mystery and I really enjoy both of the main characters in this series. For those who have read the first two books by Kerley, there is a bit of a refreshing change this time around with the lack of involvement of Carson’s brother. This time the focus is on Carson and Harry and I find that to be a positive change.
