We all have our favourites authors that we will pick up at the bookstore as soon as they are released and this reviewer is no different. These writers give comfort as you know what to expect. Every so often this reviewer will look outside of the box and pick up a book by a writers that I have never heard of. This was the case when I stumbled upon “Don’t Cry” by Beverly Barton.
This novel was released in late 2010 by Zebra Books and published by Kensington Publishing Corporation. “Don’t Cry” by Beverly Barton has everything you want in a suspense drama that will take you away on a lazy afternoon or evening.
Central to the whole story is Grief Councellor Audrey Sherrod and Special Agent J.D. Cass. Two very complex individuals who have a special interest in a series of reoccurring murders in their town. These murders hold special interest for Audrey Sherrod because of unsolved disappearances within her family many years prior that are connected to the current series of murders. Special Agent J.D. Cass as he is introduced to such a complex case while trying to be a father to a newfound teenage daughter.
This is only the beginning of this tale of suspense. As they story moves along, you realize how incredibly flawed each of the main characters are and each and every character that is introduced to us as the story moves along. Beverly Barton has made each and every one of them a person that we actually know in real life and you actually care for them I the end.
In this tremendously well written story you get everything that you could ask for. It has complexity, intrigue, suspense and just when you think you have it figured out, it will change on you. It is that unknown element that makes this novel and its cast of characters very entertaining.
This is a recommended read for anyone. After all, it is the only way to find out the ending and the few surprises in there for you on your lazy day of just reading.
Three paper cuts out of five.
