As part of my participation with the Blog Tour Group, Bandit Book Bloggers, here’s my post for Susan Finlay‘s book The Outsiders.
While Susan writes mystery and suspense rather than fantasy, I still think my blog readers might be interested in her work, since good fantasy includes some suspense & mystery, anyway!
So, here you go. I hope you find a new favourite book!
There is a stranger amongst the residents of the cave-riddled village of Reynier, France. Suspicious, they believe there’s only one reason Maurelle Dupre would be lurking in their small village—she’s a gypsy, a thief. But a former Chicago detective turned mystery author, Dave Martin, who happens to be visiting his French grandmother, isn’t so sure about the beautiful stranger when happenstance causes them to meet. He wonders why she seems so frightened and distrustful. He knows he shouldn’t get involved. The last time he trusted a woman in distress, the consequences resulted in the loss of his detective’s shield and his wife. But, as always, the detective in him can’t seem to leave well enough alone. However, what Dave couldn’t know is how persuading Maurelle to reveal herself will ultimately unveil something far worse than mere theft.
In the Shadows is a story of trust, belonging, and murder.
