Danger In Dark Places

In rural Indiana, the underground mines that once held coal and iron ore have become killing grounds. In two counties, five corpses have been discovered. Their deaths appear accidental, from drowning or suffocating in flooded and abandoned mines. But local authorities, including Chief Shaunda Lynch, have uncovered evidence suggesting they’ve all been murdered.

Assigned to the case as Federal Agents, Detectives Jack Murphy and Liddell Blanchard take charge of the investigation. Shaunda’s proven herself more than capable of policing her jurisdiction and resents the intrusion of male authority figures. As Jack digs deep into the case, he discovers the victims have checkered pasts. But no matter who believes the killings are justified, someone still has to pay for the crime . . .

The Fiercest Enemy (Sunday, March 1, 2020)
Reviewer: Kelly Yarde

Rick Reed has done it again! Jack & Liddell's actions were mind twisting as always. Just when you think you know or figured out the murderer is and how...BOOM another turn in the road! Mr. Reed has a way of drawing the reader in to the story and getting you hooked to where you can't (or won't) put the book down until you finished it. Additionally, his research on topics are TOP NOTCH! I just hope to read more from Jack in the future! 5 STARS ALL THE WAY!
