A wealthy family shrouded in scandal; a detective tasked with solving an impossible cold case; and a woman with a dark past collide in Hannah Morrissey's stunning new Black Harbor mystery, The Widowmaker.
Ever since business mogul Clive Reynolds disappeared twenty years ago, the name "Reynolds" has become synonymous with "murder" and "mystery." And now, lured by a cryptic note, down-on-her-luck photographer Morgan Mori returns home to Black Harbor and into the web of their family secrets and double lives. The same night she photographs the Reynolds holiday get-together, Morgan becomes witness to a homicide of a cop that triggers the discovery of a long-buried clue.
This could finally be the thing to crack open the chilling cold case, and Investigator Ryan Hudson has a chance to prove himself as lead detective. If only he could stop letting his need to solve his partner's recent murder distract him. But as Morgan exposes her own dark demons, could her sordid history be the key to unlocking more than one mystery?

Few authors captivate in their storytelling as does Hannah Morrissey. Blazing on the scene with her first novel, Morrissey does us one better with Widowmaker.
What makes these stories so special is not just the great mystery that it presents, though they ARE great. No, the story is really brought along by the realism of the characters, their growth (and sometimes, trauma), and the overarching dark brooding atmosphere that is Black Harbor.
And this one was dark! Hannah keeps up guessing while breathing a real life into her characters that wins us over. I mean, I'd bleed for Morgan... or Hudson equally!
With this amazing Sophmoric release, Morrissey surely cements her spot as one of the preeminent up-and-coming writers of the moment. Keep spinning them out Hannah! The readers are going to love whatever you give us!
My thanks to NetGalley for the ARC in exchange for an honest review.
