Beneath Blackwater River 

(Dr. Kay Sharp #2)


Leslie Wolfe

Leslie Wolfe’s second Kay Sharp novel, Beneath Blackwater River is off and running from page one with little or no back story to bog down the flow.

Beneath Blackwater River sees Leslie Wolfe at her best again.   To date I have read all of Wolfe’s series and the first book in each series is the hard read which I can only attribute to the back story content needed to introduce characters.

A teenage runaway, a kidnapping, a teenage murder victim, a bent cop, and a wealthy family provide the main ingredients to keep pages of Beneath Blackwater River turning into the wee hours of the morning.

The main to question to be answered, other than whodunit, is how a seventeen year-old murder victim’s DNA could match that of an unsolved kidnapping some 14 years earlier?

One of these conundrums questions I figured out long before Dr Kay did.  However, as the end drew nigh there were more twists and turns than one could possibly hope for in a mystery novel.

Beneath Blackwater River moves along at a cracking pace.  While Kay Sharp #1 was good, Kay Sharp #2 was/is an excellent read.  I am certain that all Leslie Wolfe fans will be delighted with this latest character in her repertoire.
