  • Belinda Bauer. Darkside.  A Jonas Holly mystery.   Holly is a young policeman in the village of Shipcott, where an elderly woman has been murdered in her bed.  He finds himself sidelined on the case.  "It seems his first murder investigation may be over before it begun.  But when he receives a series of increasingly anonymous notes, Jonas is thrust back into the center of the case.  Someone in the village is taunting him, blaming him for the tragedy.  Someone thinks he's not doing his job; someone seems to know every move he makes.  and soon Jonas has to ask:  Who's hunting who?"  Bauer won a CWA Gold Dagger  for her first book; Darkside is her second novel and the first to feature Jonas Holly.


  1. Interesting, though I wonder how notes can become "increasingly anonymous". Seems to me anonymous is the end of the line.

    1. Obviously, Richard, you don't write back cover blurbs.
