Angel of the Abyss by Ed Kurtz

This is the story of Graham. He is asked by Leslie Wheeler to come to Hollywood to restore some old and forgotten cine reels. When he arrives, with his friend Jake in tow, he finds her dead and a mystery on his hands. This is just the beginning of his nightmare, which has him knee deep in dead bodies, age old secrets and the whereabouts of a leading lady who has been missing for over 80 years.

This was quite slow to start and I found it a little difficult to get into, and I nearly gave up. I am so glad I didn't however as I found myself immersed in a complex noir mystery that kept me page turning. I like the dual storyline, giving us a glimpse into Graces life in parallel to the main storyline. The characters were solid, and I enjoyed the development of Jake and Grahams friendship over the course of the book. This is another great DarkFuse title.

I received a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.
