Simon Parker sends his regards.
Superb second story in the Clint Wolf trilogy by author B.J.Bourg. After the killings of his wife and daughter, homicide detective Wolf had moved from the city to become Chief of police in a small rural town in Louisiana. Now, a couple of years later, he is established, well liked and respected by his colleagues and even had a new girlfriend, and a dog. But nightmares still haunted his sleep even though his family's killers were in jail awaiting trial. Also facing a possible indictment for killing the man who had a gun to Clint's head the previous year, was fellow police officer, Susan. Then a bizarre murder takes place in his town: a woman shot through the heart by an arrow. It was not to be the only such death ...
Well written with excellent characterisation, the characters come alive as they struggle with their personal demons whilst fully investigating the serial killings. All is meticulously charted as different possible suspects and motives are sorted and found wanting. A mystery to fully engrossed the reader as they, too, confront the various twists of the plot.
As in the first of the series, J.Scott Bennett reads to perfection, his pleasantly accented voice conjuring up the town and it's inhabitants, the pace matching the text and the meticulousness of the investigation, as well as further bringing to life each individual character. The expression, 'hand and glove' come to mind when thinking of story and narrator.
Although the second part of a trilogy, this book is entirely stand alone. Meet some interesting but very real people and enjoy an excellent quest for a serial killer which will keep the reader guessing to the tragic ending - highly recommended.

Great second book!
After the events of book 1, Clint is settling in to life as the police chief. He is worried about Susan and the fact she has an upcoming indictment after what she did in the last book. But things take a turn for the worst when people start turning up dead after being shot with an arrow. All the victims have something in common and it's a race against time for Clint and his team to find the killer before they target one of them.
I really enjoyed book one, but definitely thought this one was better. Even though there were parts that annoyed me, it was still a solid 5 star read. It had more action and suspense!!
Clint has become a stronger character in this one. He knows he has to do the right thing, irregardless of who he will step on. The only thing that annoyed me so much in this one was the fact that he is with Chloe. She is all wrong for him, and honestly, she is quite annoying too!! I found their relationship to be hard to like.
As I said, there's a bit more action in this and Clint has a lot more on his plate, as well as what's happening with Susan, the current murders, there is also a very unwelcome blast from the past that could soon be paying him a visit! This one had more suspense too. It was hard to see who was the killer till near the end.
In all, a great read. I'm becoming invested in these characters and am looking forward to more from them.
J. Scott Bennett gave a flawless performance as always! He puts emotion behind his performance and always brings the story to life.
I was given this audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review. This in no way affected nor influenced my thoughts.

Book 2 just as good
I really love this series and the narrator sounds just like I imagine Clint Wolf would sound if he was a real live person. This book did not disappoint. It has 2 things going on with it. First why is the DA gunning for Suzanne, and secondly an archery killer ! Think you know who the killer is? Guess again. I was surprised when I finally worked out whom it was. I love the small town aspect of these stories having grown up in the country so it really connects me further. A good author and a good narrator equals a cozy book to crawl into. Suzanne plays a bigger role in this story and it’s not what you think it is. That was a twist and a surprise for me. Gonna start book 3, yay I’m excited. I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review. Oh, this is not a cozy mystery in that it’s fun to read; it’s real life realism. It’s got some violence that is very tolerable and a lot of mystery.
