If your looking for a dark, gritty crime novel then Granite Harbor by Peter Nichols is the perfect read. This one was so scenic that I could almost feel the cold Maine air while reading this one!

This one starts out with the murder of a teenage boy in a small coastal Maine town. The teen was discovered strung up in an elaborate display at the local tourist attraction called The Settlement. Alex Brangwen is the town’s detective and former writer. He moved to Maine from England. His ex-wife was a wealthy woman who is on the more spoiled side but is also a helicopter mom. They share a teenage daughter. Their daughter was friends with the victim so this one hits close to home for the detective. After a second teen gets murdered and left in a similar way, the community realizes they have a serial killer on the loose.

The town’s chief calls in the FBI to help solve this case and they realize this might tie in to a case that happened not far years ago. With a possible serial killer on the loose, everyone is frantic and Alex has to work tirelessly to get this case solved. His own daughter could be in danger.

This one had my heart racing and I loved the drama! The small town setting made me suspect EVERYONE. This is one of those books that has you paging through to find out what is going to happen next and who the killer is. The characters in this one were unique and the way the author wrote this had me side-eyeing everyone. I love a book with some good build-up. I haven’t read anything by Peter Nichols before but I will add him to my growing list of authors to follow. I can see this making an excellent movie. In my head I was picturing who would play each character.

Thank you to NetGalley and Celadon Books for proving us with an ARC of this exciting book.
