The Darkest Place book. I just hope that Judson doesn't wait another four years to write his next book.

During a bone-chilling snap of record cold weather, a series of enigmatic drowning deaths play out in a small summer resort community on Long Island’s Shinnecock Bay. Quickly implicated in the death is a local college professor named Deacon Kane, himself recovering from the accidental drowning death of his only son years ago—recovering slowly, and with the help of alcohol and an addictive, messy affair with a married woman.

As the police and several other interested parties watch his every move, Kane befriends a hypnotically alluring bartender named Collette and quickly continues his brutal downward spiral with little regard for self-preservation. Whether and how Kane is connected to the young victims are the questions everyone wants answered. And as it becomes clear that Kane himself may not know the extent of his own involvement, all must admit that something dark and sinister is at work in Southhampton.

Daniel Judson has a virtuoso’s touch and an uncanny ability to layer suspense, plot, and character study into an engrossing and completely surprising crime novel that will not soon be forgotten.

You know that feeling you get when you sit through a bad movie? As the credits roll and the theater lighting begins to rise you think 'What was that and why did I sit through it?' That's how I felt after finishing this novel.
Most of the characters had very little, if any, description, so I had no idea of how to picture them as I read. Kane, the main character was boring and not likable in the least.
Extremely wordy, the writing was amateurish at best. For example, here's an actual sentence from the book: "The urge to vomit suddenly came over Kane suddenly." And I'm glad for that sentence! I read it over and over because it made me laugh. I was thrilled to find SOME kind of entertainment in this book that I paid for.

The following review was not anyway influence by the manner that I received the copy. I am not a proof reader or editor. I judge the book on whether I like it or didn’t like it. I would not call this a Wine Cellar Book. There are several reasons which I felt distracted from my reading pleasure.

Sometimes I felt the book resorted to a word generating app. It became unnecessarily slow reading that left me wondering if I would ever get to the flow again. However, before you get the wrong impression, let me assure you that there is a good plot in The Darkest Place that has a real surprising ending. Along the way, blended in with the word app text, there are many twist and turns that may leave you wondering what will happen next; after some filler.

There several well developed characters in this book; both good and evil. On the good side we have Clay the PI, his boss, and Kane. On the dark side we have Dean the evil giant, Colleen Auger (or was it Colette Auster), and the mysterious Professor. Finally there are those bodies of young boys floating in various bodies near Southampton. When you think you are at the end you are not really there because the big surprise ending is yet to jump out at you.

Finally one of the drawbacks for me was the “moaning, groaning, and sweaty bodies” portion that I didn’t think needed to be included. It didn’t add to the story; at least not in the detail that some authors feel is necessary to appeal to a portion of real readers.

In the end I feel would be remiss by giving this book less that a four star review. I would also recommend it to my friends who like mysteries.

Normally i can figure out who dun it, but this one was definately a real left field! The story was involved but an excellent tale of human behavior caused by family loss! Having had a family loss, i could agree with the problem! But this problem had a varied cast of people with different concerns! Well written, but harsh wordings! Good read!!!

When I began reading this book I thought descriptions,ugh! To many adjectives. As I got in to the story I was captivated.
If ever a person had a bad day, it could never be as bad as this one.
This Story begins as a mystery then that evolves into a story-within-a-story and the Mysteries pile up until you have to finish the story and ordered to know what's.
Now I have to go get the other books because a writer this good needs to be appreciated and I really, really appreciated him.

This was an incredibly dark and depressing read. The title fits the book. If you like really dark and evil stuff, then this is your book. I think the most disappointing part of it was that all of his female characters were such victims. Seems like he could have had at least one female character that was strong and stood up to evil without ending up a brutal victim.
I can't tell Amazon readers what I thought because you censor truth as individuals express it while following your guidelines. I wrote a fair and honest appraisal of a book and you wouldn't publish it. Must be because you get kickbacks from the crummy authors you peddle and push like drug dealers.
