The Badlands series would make such a fantastic TV show
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
This instalment brings back some of the plots from the first book in the series as the serial killer from Badlands comes up for trial.
There’s all kinds of strange events occurring, people are having unusually bad nightmares, curses are affecting the most prominent people involved in the trial and there’s potentially a second serial killer in Myrtle Beach that no-one knew about!
For Simon and Vic, there’s the added complications of trying to organise their wedding too but, thankfully, there’s no messing about with their relationship, the medium and his detective partner are as solid as ever.
This was a well-paced narrative that never threw too much into the story at once, it switched between the domestic side with Simon and Vic’s day to day life and then jumped heavily into the paranormal element which makes these books such a great read.
I found this particular plotline to be completely engaging, I liked the creepy vibe throughout, loved seeing Simon’s privateer ghostly ancestor Dante again, and I’m always up for appearances from Miss Eppie!
Another great addition to the series.
