The Falls

Taylor Bridges #2

B Michael Radburn

Pantera Press

ISBN: 9781921997426

 

Description:

A week of despair… a century of evil

 

Damaged but not yet broken, park ranger Taylor Bridges believes his ghosts are in the past – until a raging forest fire in an isolated canyon of The Falls lays bare the remains of a young woman… and a decade-old killing ground.

 

After the police enlist Taylor in their investigation, the evidence bizarrely points to a deranged preacher who reigned over The Falls a century ago.

 

But when a crucial witness and a policewoman disappear, it’s clear that a disciple of The Falls’ dark history is on the loose.

 

 

My View:

The tension is cranked up another notch in this instalment of Taylor Bridges’ story.

 

In this, the second in the Taylor Bridge series, the tension is palpable from the onset.  The book opens with a great hook; “When the flicker of life left their eyes, the pupils dilated and oil-black, the surface marble dry, he knew they were dead. Yet, against all rationale, he sensed they could still see, judging him, as he prepared the grave. That’s why he closed their eyes. That’s why he turned their faces away.” Chapter one, p3.

 

The line was baited with my favourite cravings – a murder, some mystery and a good dose of psychological thriller.  Add to that delicious combination a protagonist whom I enjoy traveling with and realistic settings; Australian – small rural town and bush settings. Evocative, taught and so so credible.   What more could I ask for? I took the bait – hook line and sinker!

 

Loved this read…more please.
