With the rising voices of crime literature, a new rendition of this beloved genre which involves detective fiction has been on the rise. Some of these works will have you hiding behind the cushions while others will make you cringe and shut your eyes in disgust. One such piece which blends a reader’s feelings and emotions is the ‘City of Deadly Dreams’.
Prompted by the need for money a sassy private detective Dane Cooper takes up a case involving the mysterious disappearance of a young man named Elvis. It is during this quest that he meets a pretty blonde by the name Darcy who is surely more than meets the eye.
Upon some comprehensive unravelling, Dane gets to find out that Darcy has something to do with this disappearance. Furthermore, Darcy has numerous dangerous secrets and Dane knows that he cannot trust her. Things take a sharp turn when Dane finds out that Elvis has left a trail of pregnant young girls, unhappy husbands and a bunch of vengeful men. What will he do to solve the case while protecting himself and Elvis from killers who seem to be closing in and what does Darcy’s dangerous secrets got to do with all this?
Elyse Douglas is one of the promising foremost stylists at work in crime and detective fiction today. In her unique way, she blends some unique touches that render the narrative fiendishly outstanding. Furthermore, the whole narrative is held together and also driven forward by perfectly formed characters especially Dane who, through him, readers can experience a great mind at work, as he unravels the mystery. A genuinely compelling read with scenes keenly observed, a strong sense of place, and some brooding atmospherics all lovers of this genre can appreciate. Unfailingly entertaining!
