    Following his Edgar winning debut novel The Blue Edge of Midnight A Max Freeman Mystery Johnathon King delivers a deliciously intense and engrossing story in A Visible Darkness However this intensity differs because the reader knows who the killer is from page 1 but why is Eddie killing the elderly matriarchs of African American families? The second mystery of Manchester and Freeman matriarchs is slowly revealed showing the same symmetry and dichotomy of the main uestion why Marrying his reporter’s skills of observation and knowledge of people King shows the reader how a visible darkness shadows a neighborhood like that Manchester is from but can never go back to it is his buddy ex cop Max Freeman he enlists to help unravel the murders of old widows who should be safe in their homesBack in his shack that he leases from the State of Florida Max Freeman is still recovering from the notoriety and unintended conseuences from his last outing into civilization months before when he hunted and became the prey of a child serial killer Freeman acknowledges the subtle changes he now carries a cell phone and checks his dock stairs for footprints and accepts the new park ranger’s passive aggression So when Billy Manchester said “his voice straight and efficient “Max I need your help” Freeman leaves his beloved river for the city streets without hesitationMax is a little dubious at first to believe that little old ladies are being murdered after they sold their life insurance policies to an investment group especially after talking to Detective Richards The Broward County ME office and law enforcement believe the women died of natural causes Soon after one of the life insurance company sends down a bigoted investigator that he is forced to work with Freeman agrees with his friend that something is not right And without a beat or a badge Freeman falls into his cop beat rhythm forming unlikely alliances in the black neighborhood’s drug zone to catch a killer in an investigation that has its own twists and turns

    A VISIBLE DARKNESS Unlicensed InvestigatorEx Cop Florida Cont – VGKing Jonathon – 2nd in seriesDutton 2003 HardcoverMax Freeman is an ex Philadelphia cop now living in an Everglade swamp shack He occasionally does investigation for his best friend attorney Billy Manchester In this case Billy suspects someone is killing elderly black women who sold their life insurance policies to investors Although the police have declared the deaths to be natural causes Max soon agrees that things are not as they seem There are a couple small weaknesses in this book you know the killer which does lessen the suspense and the protagonist is physically described by seeing himself in a mirror But I forgive those flaws as King has created a story which builds layer upon layer showing the motive for the killings and who is behind them The book is full of interesting characters including Max and Billy about whom we learn in this second book Det Sherry Richards drug dealers and gang members The story of Max’s father’s death and the friendship between his and Billy’s mother is almost a mystery within the mystery King’s description of Florida particularly the contrast between being in the city or on the water is particularly effective This is starting off as a very good series and I’m pleased to see there are books waiting for me

    I'm always a big fan for a PI tale In this one I like the Max Freeman protagonist as a transplant from Piladeliphia to the Florida Everglades that sets up an intriguing contrast between his former profession as a gritty cop and his current status as an edgy private detective The prose stays sharp and clean For some reason AVD reminds me of Stephen Greenleaf's private detective Good stuff

    uite good and very capably written I would have rated it higher but for the overuse of boilerplate I guess all writers update readers over and over on the backstory of their characters as they add books to a series However I found myself constantly encountering lines repeated from the first book in this series uite a distraction and although I have constantly encountered this feature in the mystery series I have followed it is often less intrusively employed

    The books in this series reminds of some really good chicken wings Very tasty just not much meat on the bone Kings writing style very closely matches that of Michael Connelly and that is a good thing The story lines in this series of books has been very solid so far I would really like to see King attempt to write a novel of perhaps another 100 pages in length I feel this would add that much to an already very Goodread I did skip this book and read the third in the series before reading this the second in the series I found that the author does follow the story line through each book and that it is a good idea to read them in the correct order or some details may be missed I also found as in many series that some will have a better story line than others A Visible Darkness will be a good fit for anyone interested in a uick read
