Created by Daniel Judson
Clay is a local P.I. hired by the devout Catholic parents of a young man found in the icy winter waters of Long Island's Shinnecock Bay to prove their son's death wasn't a suicide. It seems unlikely, given that several other young men have also been fished out of the brink lately, and suspicoion soon settles on an alcoholic local college professor whose own son accidentally drowned a few years ago,
Like Judson's previous books featuring Declan "Mac" MacManus, The Darket Place (2006) is no easy ride -- it's bleak and nasty, an unsettling but captivating exploration of grief and loss told from several points-of-view, a "riveting albeit bleak crime novel offers a strong sense of place along with thoughtful rumination about doing the right thing and finding redemption for past actions" according to Booklist.
