Lisa Alber's County Clare books just get better and better. The village and its inhabitants seem real. Their victories and heartbreaks seem real. The different story threads weave together, part, and reconnect in unexpected ways. I finish each story wondering what will happen next in these peoples' lives. This book sucked me in and didn't want to let go. I finished reading, stepped back a pace, and now I'm wondering what will happen next.

“Path Into Darkness” by Lisa Alber is part of the “County Clare” series. While it is not necessary to have read the previous books to enjoy this one, reading previous books makes it easier understand the characters and situations. Detective Danny Ahern and his colleagues are investigating the murder of Elder Joe, a man with a decidedly unpleasant personality. They struggle to find answers without much success. Joe has been running a boarding house, among other things, so they suspect that the killer may be one of his tenants. There are twists and turns on every page as secrets are revealed, families unravel, characters struggle with personal calamities, and the ghosts of the past come screaming into the present. The characters are well developed, with captivating personalities and intriguing pasts. The story brings out the rich history and geography of Ireland along with its legends and darkness. In addition, the Irish setting is as much a character in the book as the people are. I received a copy of “Path Into Darkness” from Midnight Ink, Lisa Alber, NetGalley in exchange for my impartial review. I enjoyed the book, but because I had not read any previous books, it took a while for me to sort out the details, characters, and relationships established previously. I am sure that return readers will have no problem jumping right in. I love character-driven books, and this certainly fits that description.
