Bleeding Darkness is a cleverly-crafted story, steeped in suspense, impossible to put down
Rick Mofina, bestselling author of Last Seen
The ongoing story lines in Kala and Rouleau’s personal and work lives add depth and strength to this book and the series as a whole. Readers will enjoy riding shotgun with them through every twist and turn of this intriguing case.
Chapman shows once again why she is on the rise among thoughtful and insightful crime writers. Bleeding Darkness is not only a good Canadian crime novel — it is a good crime novel, period.
