Today I have another book from Aline, that is perfect for Valentine's day,
with it's tale of love and loss"

 The Darkness and the Deep cover


The loss of a lifeboat along with all three of its crews is a hard blow for the small town of Knockhaven. But it’s harder still when police discover that the wreck may not have been a simple accident. Was it the act of bored vandals in a fishing port stricken with unemployment? Was there a link to the drug trade which has taken root in the locality? Or is there someone who, in their determination to kill one person, was callous enough to take two innocent lives? As Detective Inspector Marjory Fleming and her team investigate the murders with a whole community hungry for justice, the pressure—professional and personal—is on.

Aline delivers again, with a book that has so many twists, it will leave your head swirling. Very reminiscent of an Agatha Christie novel, when you finish the book, you will be thumbing back through to see the clues that you realized you missed! Who was the true intended victim? Was it an accident or a conspiracy? As the reader gets to know the characters, the questions abound, and the suspect list increases. This was a roller coaster of a read, and one I could not put down! If you love a good British mystery, you need to check out this series by Aline!
