Dark Water, a novel about two detectives – Costello and Anderson. When a murderer turns up dead, like a serial killers victim, they investigate his murder. A rape, where the person responsible is in prison, it is clear that he didn’t work alone, and someone else has been targeting other men, to help him. The lips glued together, he isn’t telling anyone his secrets. When a young woman is attacked, seemingly by a copy cat killer, perhaps the murders will start again. Or, perhaps, they have never stopped.
It is a well written thriller, which keeps you guessing about who the murderer is and I wouldn’t have guessed the ending. Although, I would have preferred it to be in the viewpoint of one of the characters, rather than both Anderson and Costello.
Also, I did find the portrayal of some of the female characters a little outdated. Marita, more concerned with how her followers think of her, courting the press. Costello, even at the end, thinking of a love interest, not at the danger she was obviously in.
I would give it four out of five stars for this reason.
