A Measure of Darkness

A Measure of Darkness

The fantastic follow-up to CRIME SCENE by masters of the psychological thriller genre Jonathan and Jesse Kellerman. A MEASURE OF DARKNESS features deputy coroner Clay Edison in another gripping case . . .

A wild party in a gentrifying East Bay neighbourhood. A heated argument that spills into the street. Gunshots. Chaos.

When the smoke clears, the mystery reveals itself: there is one victim whose death doesn’t match the others. She has been brutalized and abandoned, stripped of ID and left to die: it falls to Deputy Coroner Clay Edison to give her a name and a voice.

Clay embarks upon a journey into a hidden world where innocence and perversity mingle . . . and before long, his relentless pursuit of the truth will lead him right into the line of fire.

If you love the Alex Delaware series, and are a fan of Harlan Coben and Michael Connelly, you will be hooked by A MEASURE OF DARKNESS.

Brilliant, page-turning fiction with mythic underpinnings... The book is like nothing I've ever read before. It sort of took my breath away
