The blur of shapes began to sharpen, forming a clear picture that stood out against the darkened background. For a moment he couldn’t move, his fear rendering him immobile. He needed help. He turned to run.
On a dark night, on a mountain road, a young couple, Matthew and Stacey, are on their way home from a night out. Their car breaks down and Matthew leaves to look for help. By the next morning, Stacey is found murdered in the car and Matthew is missing, presumed guilty of her murder.
Called to the scene, Detective Alex King and her team soon see some terrifying links – to another local young man who is missing, and to the discovery of a body from 30 years ago.
Alex knows that the missing and the dead have a story to tell her. But will she hear it in time to uncover the killer before they strike again?
A Promise to the Dead is a totally unputdownable crime thriller that will have you hooked. Readers of Angela Marsons, Karin Slaughter and Robert Dugoni will love this.

What can one say about this book. It was a strong book with characters that I really care for.
The story was good and I still like the way the author tells the story. However this book just didn’t stand up against the others in the series. It was strong and was very good. I just felt that something with the characters was missing.
It looks from this that it’s the end of this series and I upset by that as I would love to see just what would come next for these people.
While not the ending that I would have wanted it was still a very good book. I am looking forward to what is next from this author.
