In Black Coral, Detective Sloan McPherson is a diver with the newly created Underwater Investigative Unit within the Florida Department of Law Enforcement.
While pulling a car accident victim from a canal, Sloan finds a thirty-year-old crime scene. Four long-missing teenagers are the victim of a serial killer who hasn’t been active lately. However, now that the crimes are being reinvestigated, the killings begin again and Sloan is targeted. Can she solve the crime before the killer murders her too?
This novel is a well-plotted serial killer police procedural. The Florida setting allows you to learn a lot about gators and why you don’t want to move to Florida! Overall, Black Coral is a pleasant read. 3.5 stars!
Thanks to Thomas & Mercer and NetGalley for a copy in exchange for my honest review.
