Mark the Shark is a 90 years old veteran he is and thinks that he is being followed. He calls Sheriff Piper Blackwell to stop whoever is after him. At the same time recent storms have exposed a skeleton on the bluffs. Clearly someone was killed but who were they and why were they killed? Piper and Oran Rosenberg step up to figure out what is going on. But someone wants the past to stay buried and will go to al lengths to keep it so. Piper has recently been elected as sheriff and is in the middle of rearranging her staff when Mark calls about being robbed. She is hoping that is all that is happening when she gets the news of the bodying being discovered. From here it is a break neck pace as secrets are uncovered and someone tries to keep them hidden at any cost.This is a great story that will suck you in, keep you guessing with all the twist and turns, and will leave you shocked at the end. I have not read the first book in this series, The Dead of Winter, but I had no problem following along with the story. But after reading The Dead of Night I can’t wait to go back and see that I missed.I received The Dead of Night from Reading Addiction Virtual Book Tours for free. This has in no way influenced my opinion of this book.
