Claire McKenzie is an intrepid news reporter on a mission to make her city aware of the ‘Smiley Face Murderer,’ unaware that she might be the target herself. The clock is ticking, and the body count is rising; Detective Lance Harris leads an intense investigation to catch the murderer, all while trying to save the woman he loves from becoming the next victim. A thrilling story of life and death saved by love. Beyond the Shadows by DeAnn Daley Holcomb is a murder mystery novel that takes the reader on a journey of twists and turns as the detective tries to uncover the killer’s identity before they strike again.

The characterization is also well-done, with fully-realized and multi-dimensional characters that are easy to connect with and root for. The setting of the book is another strong point. The small-town atmosphere is well-described, and the author does a great job of creating a sense of place and community that is both eerie and endearing. This setting adds to the flavor of the story, as well as the character development, making the book feel both grounded and otherworldly. The murder mystery is well-executed, with plenty of red herrings and false leads to keep the reader guessing. The author does an excellent job of weaving together multiple plotlines and tying them together satisfactorily, making for a gripping and emotionally impactful finale.
