    Outstanding new series

    The second book in this new mystery series is again set in Perry Hollow, Pennsylvania and features Police Chief Kat Campbell. The prologue covers a boy gone missing the night that Neil Armstrong takes his first steps on the moon. Ten-year old Charlie Olmstead goes out to see the moon and disappears. His bike is found in the river and Charlie is believed to have drowned accidentally, although his body never surfaces.

    More than 40 years later his younger brother Eric is dealing with their mother's death and estate, and is left with a last request -- "Find your brother". Eric hires ex-State Investigator Nick Donnelly to investigate and try to find out what happened the night Charlie disappeared. Nick approaches Kat, who is wary due to the fact that her own father handled the investigation into Charlie's disappearance. They soon find a clue left by the boys' mother, who has found several children gone missing the same days as man set foot on the moon.

    This was a truly good read, with interesting characters both new and old. The mystery itself was very engrossing and the investigation eventually splits between Kat and Eric investigating Charlie's disappearance in Perry Hollow and Nick investigation the other children's disappearances. I don't want to give the resolution away, but suffice it to say it took me totally by surprise.

    I continue to be impressed by this new author and look forward to the next book he writes.

    a terrific investigative thriller

    In 1969 as Neil Armstrong steps on the moon, the parents of nine year old Charlie Olmstead go to get him to watch on TV, but he is not in his bedroom as they thought. Perry Hollow, Pennsylvania Police Chief Jim Campbell leads the search that ends when they find the lad's bike at the bottom of a nearby waterfall. Although his body was never found, the cops assumed he drowned.

    Four decades later, Charlie's brother Eric has returned to Perry Hollow to bury his mother. In honor of his mom who never gave up the hope her son would come home, he asks his high school girlfriend Police Chief Kat Campbell to reopen the cold case disappearance of his sibling. Eric also hires injured former state police officer turned cold case investigator Nick Donnelly to look into his brother's disappearance. The trio finds newspaper clippings in the house of Eric's late mom. Kat does a follow-up having a much better data base than her dad had; she uncovers the fact that several children vanished in what was called accidents during moon landings. As the threesome connect the dots of an apparent serial killer, Kat's fifth grade son James resents his single mom spending all her time on the inquiry and none on him.

    The second Kat and Nick collaboration (see Death Notice) is a terrific investigative thriller that grips the reader from the onset and several stunning but plausible spins later leaves fans satiated yet craving a third team-up soonest. The story line is fast-paced while rolling back the years using the successes and failures of NASA as a launch into political upheavals over forty years. Bad Moon is a powerful serial killer whodunit.
