The fantastic follow-up to CRIME SCENE by masters of the psychological thriller genre Jonathan and Jesse Kellerman. A MEASURE OF DARKNESS features deputy coroner Clay Edison in another gripping case...

A wild party in a gentrifying East Bay neighbourhood. A heated argument that spills into the street. Gunshots. Chaos.

When the smoke clears, the mystery reveals itself: there is one victim whose death doesn't match the others. She has been brutalized and abandoned, stripped of ID and left to die: it falls to Deputy Coroner Clay Edison to give her a name and a voice.

Clay embarks upon a journey into a hidden world where innocence and perversity mingle... and before long, his relentless pursuit of the truth will lead him right into the line of fire.

If you love the Alex Delaware series, and are a fan of Harlan Coben and Michael Connelly, you will be hooked by A MEASURE OF DARKNESS.
