Book Review: Come Dark by Steven F. Havill

Come Dark
By: Steven F. Havill
Poisoned Pen Press
Release: April 2016

Another entry into the Posadas County Mysteries. Undersheriff Estelle Reyes-Guzman and her colleagues piece together and connect the dots of a strange murder of the local high school volleyball coach.

Stacie Willis Stewart, wife of the local bank president steps into The Spree (the local grocer), leaving her dog and child in her car one sunny morning. Stacie disappears and is missing. Things take bad turn when volleyball coach Clint Scott is found dead from four gunshot wounds in the girl’s locker room at school.

Law enforcement untangles a mess of stories and possible suspects to finally find the killer and have a tense standoff.

There are a lot of story lines to follow in this book that fans of Havill will enjoy. I found the story interesting and the characters to be real with the occasional surprise that’s always nice to have in a good story. I will be reading more from this author though this is my first to read of his.
