Let The Devil Sleep by John Verdon
August 6, 2012 - Amy Phelps
International bestselling author John Verdon returns with his retired detective Dave Gurney in "Let The Devil Sleep."
Gurney has had a rough time since his last case, spending time in the hospital and has now descended into a depression, barely wanting to leave the house. When a former friend, Connie Clarke, a journalist, asks him to check up on her daughter Kim's projet, Gurney is reluctant at first. Kim's project on checking in with murder victim's family members about the trauma and impact of the murders was originally a school project and is now becoming a possible reality show. But is Kim's work into The Good Shepherd's case, one that was never solved, putting her in danger? As Gurney begins his consultancy work, he finds not only a troubled ex-boyfriend, but also some troubled facts regarding the case. He begins to nose around further, putting himself at risk as someone first leaves a sharp arrow and then cuts the brakes on his tractor. Has Garney made a new enemy? Is the Good Shepherd back for more?
This tightly woven mystery will keep readers guessing until the very end. Gurney is a smart, but relatable hero, and will continue to entertain fans.
"Let The Devil Sleep" is published by Crown. It is $25 and 449 pages long.
