Is a serial killer walking the quiet streets of Angel Falls?
Small-town Sheriff Jonas Clearwater is suddenly responsible for investigating his best friend’s death. Preliminary observations suggest the successful true-crime novelist Cecil Howard could have died from a drug overdose or suicide. Jonas is racked with guilt wondering if he could have prevented the tragedy.
On the night Cecil dies, Jonas comes face-to-face with author Peyton Patel, a woman with whom he’d had a brief encounter and never expected to see again but couldn’t get her out of his mind. Why was she there, and what does she know about Cecil’s death?
Months earlier in a chance meeting on a lonely night, an instant attraction ignited between them, but both were hurting from personal tragedies and the timing wasn’t right. Peyton had just buried her beloved grandfather, and Jonas learned that his father has a fatal illness.
Soon, it becomes evident that someone was trying to silence Cecil before he could expose the facts about the brutal murders of three women in New Mexico.
This time Peyton’s life is in danger, and Jonas realizes his feelings for her are real. Now, he’s in a race with time to keep Peyton from becoming the next victim.
Will the fire that’s been smoldering between them burst into flames again?
An intriguing story line that draws you in and keeps you glued to the pages. Suspense, thrills, mystery and a bit of romance have you sitting on the edge of your seat waiting to see what happens. The characters are strong, easy to get to know and realistic. Highly recommend!

Dark truths by Charlene Tess and Judi Thompson. Angel falls book 6. This was a terrific read. The characters were impressive. I didn't have a favourite. I do love detective books. Even though this is book 6 I was still able to read it. I'm looking forward to the next book. 5*.
Sheriff Jonas Clearwater and grisly fiction writer Peyton Patel, two of true crime writer Cecil Howard’s closest friends were devastated to learn of his murder. Especially now that they have evidence that he was close to revealing his discovery of a serial killer and an innocent man may be in prison for a murder he may not have committed. Now someone has broken into Cecil’s temporary residence in Angel Falls and his home in Albuquerque and the only thing that appears to be destroyed were the offices where he does research for his books. Now Jonas and Peyton are trying to follow the trail set my Cecil while the killer is wanting to make sure they don’t find him. This story continues with the continuing stories from Tess Thompson’s other books and I love that we are able to follow their journey‘s as well.

Peyton and Jonas have a history of sorts, and joining together to investigate their friend's death, they're also dealing with a mutual attraction that might lead to .. something. There's plenty of action, lots of characters to watch. Not everyone is who they say they are ... and almost everyone lies and/or has secrets. There are some twists and turns that lead to a surprising conclusion. Although 6th in this series, it is easily read as a stand alone.

Rating: 4.25 🌟 First and foremost, I'd like to express my gratitude to Netgalley for providing me with an e-ARC of this book. Jonas Clearwater, a small-town sheriff, is tasked with investigating the demise of his best pal. According to preliminary findings, Cecil Howard, a prominent true-crime novelist, might well have killed off the drug overdose or suicide. Jonas is filled with remorse, wondering if he could have done anything to avert the catastrophe. On the night Cecil dies, Jonas came face-to-face with novelist Peyton Patel, a lady with whom he’d had a brief meeting and never expected to see again but couldn’t get her out of his thoughts. What drew her there in the first place, and what does she know about Cecil's death? Months ago, they seemed to have an undeniable charm after just a brief encounter on a lonely night, but they were both struggling from personal losses, and the timing wasn't right. Jonas just had learned that his father had a terrible illness, and Peyton had just lost her cherished grandfather. Cecil soon realizes that someone is attempting to quiet him before he can reveal the truth about the terrible murders of three women in New Mexico. Peyton's life is in jeopardy this time, and Jonas understands his feelings for her are genuine. He's now racing against time to avoid Peyton from being the next victim. This book had a well-written plot, and the plotlines were crazy till the very end, the reason for which was quite unexpected to me.
