A Good Mystery

Finished April 25
Darkness and Light by John Harvey
This is the second book I've read featuring Frank Elder, and I thoroughly enjoyed it.
Elder has left the force and lives in a cottage in Cornwall. His ex-wife asks him to do a favour for a friend of hers whose sister appears to be missing, and he returns to check out what might have happened to the woman. He also spends some time reconnecting with his daughter Katherine.
When the woman eventually turns up, dead and in her own bed, Frank is reminded of a case eight years earlier and teams up with the local police force to investigate. Lots of interesting characters and a good story kept my interest going.
