Blurb; Black River is an electrifying return for relentless reporter Tuva Moodyson, from the author of Dark Pines and Red Snow.
Tuva’s been living clean in southern Sweden for four months when she receives horrifying news. Her best friend Tammy Yamnim has gone missing.
Racing back to Gavrik at the height of Midsommar, Tuva fears for Tammy’s life. Who has taken her, and why? And who is sabotaging the small-town search efforts?
Surrounded by dark pine forest, the sinister residents of Snake River are suspicious of outsiders. Unfortunately, they also hold all the answers. On the shortest night of the year, Tuva must fight to save her friend. The only question is who will be there to save Tuva?
My Review; It’s so good to be back with Tuva. We knew she couldn’t leave that town really didn’t we? I can’t wait to see what lies ahead for this series and Tuva. Brilliantly written. Brilliant story. It had me hooked! A real page turner. The amount of times this book got my heart pounding is unbelievable.
In Black River things start to get personal when Tuvas best friend goes missing. Tuva is desperate to find her and won’t stop until she does, even if that means putting herself in danger. In this story I saw Tuvas role change from journalist to her own personal investigator working alongside the police. She suspects lots of people but did she even get close?
Tense. Thrilling. Chilling. Gripping. Heart pounding. Everytime you think she is getting somewhere… It’s not. I need to mention theres a lot of bugs and snakes in this book which made me cringe. A lot of dodgy characters. A lot of secrets about to be uncovered. Especially when another local woman goes missing. What is happening in this small town? Whose next? Are the women alive? Do they have time? Clever plot. Loved it.
A well deserved four stars from me. Highly recommend. I look forward to book four.
