Description

A small town in coastal Maine is shaken to its core by a serial killer in this crime novel from Peter Nichols, bestselling author of The Rocks

In scenic Granite Harbor, life has continued on―quiet and serene―for decades. That is until a local teenager is found brutally murdered in the Settlement, the town’s historic archaeological site. Alex Brangwen, adjusting to life as a single father with a failed career as a novelist, is the town’s sole detective. This is his first murder case and, as both a parent and detective, Alex knows the people of Granite Harbor are looking to him to catch the killer and temper the fear that has descended over the town.

Isabel, a single mother attempting to support her family while healing from her own demons, finds herself in the middle of the case when she begins working at the Settlement. Her son, Ethan, and Alex’s daughter, Sophie, were best friends with the victim. When a second body is found, both parents are terrified that their child may be next. As Alex and Isabel race to find the killer in their midst, the town’s secrets―past and present―begin bubbling to the surface, threatening to unravel the tight-knit community.

At once a page-turning thriller and a captivating portrait of the social fabric of a small town, Granite Harbor evokes the atmosphere of HBO’s Mare of Easttown with a villain reminiscent of Thomas Harris’s Silence of the Lambs.

In this gripping thriller by Peter Nichols, A Voyage for Madmen, Granite Harbor, Maine failed novelist turned police detective Alex Brangwen is on the trail of a serial killer striking the town’s children while involving the town’s historical settlement. His personal involvement in the case includes his teenage daughter and her friends as well as a former love interest who now works as a reenactor at the settlement. Can he stop the killer before they strike too close to home?

I found this an exciting page turner. Nichols elevates the story from standard serial killer fare with pitch perfect writing, three dimensional realistic characters, and a plot that moves along at a great pace. Having his main character, a once celebrated author now living life in a small town, added a unique perspective to the story. Granite Harbor is a place I would like to visit and I hope to see more of police detective Brangwen in the future.
