Alex Barclay in his new book, “Harm's Reach book coverHarm’s Reach” Book Four in the Ren Bryce series published by Harper gives us another adventure with Ren Bryce.

From the back cover: In the end, the truth will find you…

FBI Agent Ren Bryce finds herself entangled in two seemingly unrelated mysteries. But the past has a way of echoing down the years and finding its way into the present.

When Special Agent Ren Bryce discovers the body of a young woman in an abandoned car, solving the case becomes personal. But the more she uncovers about the victim’s last movements, the more questions are raised.

Why was Laura Flynn driving towards a ranch for troubled teens in the middle of Colorado when her employers thought she was hundreds of miles away? And what did she know about a case from fifty years ago, which her death dramatically reopens?

As Ren and cold case investigator Janine Hooks slowly weave the threads together, a picture emerges of a privileged family determined to hide some very dark secrets – whatever the cost.

What a way to begin a case. While following up on a bank robbery Ren accidentally discovers the body of a young woman shot to death in a rental car on the side of the road. All kinds of questions come up regarding the death of this woman, Laura Flynn. As the investigation proceeds Ren and Janine have to reopen a case from fifty years ago. A current hot case with lead to a cold case is quite a challenge but Mr. Barclay knows how to present all the evidence and keep our interest as he deftly weaves the story before us. This is my first book with Mr. Barclay and all I can say it certainly will not be my last. Ren and Janine are fascinating characters that are very real with their own personal issues. Hanging out with them is similar to hanging out with good friends, it is a lot of fun. Let me assure you that once you get started with “Harm’s Reach” you are not going to want to stop until you finish so I recommend you start early. Mr. Barclay has provided us with a very clever exciting book and I look forward to the next book in this series.
