This series gets better with every book. Downpour has to be my favorite in the series so far. Richardson has been compared to Chandler and that comparison couldn’t be more correct. While conducting a pretrial investigation in the Olympic Peninsula, our protagonist Harper Blaine sees a ghostly car accident whose victim insists that he was murdered and that the nearby community of Sunset Lakes is to blame. While investigating, she must unravel the secrets at Blood Lake and stop the Grey things from controlling the area before it becomes a threat. The tale was engaging and all of the threads came together wonderfully. Harper Blaine is kick-ass and shows no fear. Kat Richardson should be extremely proud of this masterpiece.
