In Circumvention: Dwayne Morrow Mystery #2 by Darin Miller, readers discover that while following Alan Carter, Dwayne found a body in an alley. The victim was brutally murdered by the Eviscerator killer. Brady, from the Columbus Dispatch, wants them to work together to find the killer. Brady has information that can be useful in their investigation, but Dwayne may not reveal the source to others. Melanie, the widow of Dwayne’s murdered friend, is in Columbus for a conference. He is shocked to see her with Professor Jordan as he has feelings for her. After a traumatic event in Brady’s life, Dwayne continues the investigation with Melanie’s help. Events at Dwayne’s house lead him to believe that the killer is stalking him and that his loved ones are not safe.

Circumvention by Darin Miller has several interacting plots which were intertwined through naturally flowing chapters. There was loads of action and never a dull moment. The story is fast-paced and I was intrigued. The suspense held my attention and I enjoyed the many twists and turns. The characters were skillfully handled, and I loved them as they were authentic and unique. Everyone has a part in the success of the story. My favorite character is Dwayne. He is just an ordinary man and could be my next-door neighbor. The book is well written and the quality of writing makes the story a page-turner. Author Darin Miller caught me totally off guard with the ending!
