River City is plagued by a serial rapist. His attacks are becoming more brutal and Detective John Tower is sure that he’ll go from rape to murder if he isn’t stopped soon. Meanwhile, the rapes stir up ghosts for both Officer Katie MacLeod and Officer Thomas Chisolm. Both struggle to put those haunted memories to rest even as they are drawn into the center of Tower’s investigation. When a series of missteps and near misses push the rapist even further, everyone involved must face their old fears...or be destroyed by them.
What did you like best about Beneath a Weeping Sky? What did you like least?
What I liked was what I found the most distracting. To anyone who has spent any time in Spokane, Washington, it was clear that was the setting for this story. Except for one misdirection, all street names and landmarks were spot on. Kind of fun except that if one is going to go to all that trouble, why not just call the city in the story Spokane and the river bisecting the downtown the Spokane River? Looking Glass River? Really? Dumb.
What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?
The story was OK, though certainly not exceptional. Other than being troubled by the place name, it was a satisfactory diversion.
Do you think Beneath a Weeping Sky needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?
Not especially, unless the author could bring himself to naming the actual city. I would read/listen to another.
