John Darling, author of Into the Dark Desolate Night
(Kindle Direct Publishing)
Into the Dark Desolate Night is a string of 10 short stories about Detective Anderson. In it, he goes from being a small town homicide detective, with 20 years on the job, to owning the largest private detective agency in Miami.
The catalyst to his fame and fortune is when he solves the nationally known Prime Cut Killer case. A serial killer is shooting people between their eyes and then chopping off parts of their body. The only connection between all the victims is that they have no connection until Anderson finds the one that leads him to the shocking identity of the murderer.
The remainder of the stories add characters to Anderson’s life (including wife #3) who recur throughout the book, so it reads like a novel yet covers 10 distinct cases; everything from the hunt for the killer of a “mad scientist” to the search for a missing Notary Public.
