Killing Innocence is a work of fiction in the murder mystery and interpersonal drama subgenres. It is best suited to the adult reading audience and was penned by author Merit Clark. Written as the second novel in the Jack Fariel Denver Mysteries series, we are back with our homicide detective as he explores the grisly world of human trafficking. When a single body discarded in a snowstorm leads Jack to uncover the first threads of a huge international criminal network, he becomes the target of a remorseless killer. But Jack is determined to help the young women whose futures have been stolen by the trafficking ring, even if means a severe risk to his own life.
Author Merit Clark has crafted a superb work of mystery and detective fiction with plenty of clever twists and exciting plot points for fans of the genre to follow. One of the features I found particularly interesting about the work was its sense of timing, pace, and tension, which combines the use of excellent dialogue and atmospheric scene descriptions to create some really hair-raising moments. The storyline breeds excitement as it always feels like things could turn in a moment, but Clark writes with such confidence and smooth prose that you know you’re always in safe hands. The work crosses over the gritty and cozy genres really well to produce a read that all kinds of mystery fans are sure to love. Overall, I’d certainly recommend Killing Innocence for fans of the existing series and newcomers seeking an excellent new detective series to follow.
