If You Like Mike M.W. Craven Books, You’ll Love…

A serial killer is on the loose and he’s very ritualistic as he’s burning people alive in the Lake District’s prehistoric stone circles. The police have no clues and the case is dumped on the desk of Washington Poe. He’s a disgraced detective brought back from suspension for this case who wants no part of the case. Someone seemingly wants him to see it though as there is a trail of clues that is left just for him and he’s not only part of the investigation, but part of the killer’s plan.

Black Summer is the second book in the Washington Poe series. An old case comes back to haunt Poe in this one as Jared Keaton, a killer who Poe testified killed his daughter despite them never finding the body, is serving a life sentence in prison. Things get awry when a young woman comes into the police station with irrefutable evidence that she is actually Keaton’s daughter. This puts the spotlight on Poe and he’ll need to investigate to save his career, and find out what really happened to Elizabeth.
