The week just keeps getting bigger and bigger. Today’s novel has a really cute cover but a really creepy and intense inside. Susan Whitfield has a winner here in Sin Creek. But wait, what else do we have going on here on The Scoop and the G-ZONE? Plenty! This weekend we have a ton of stuff going on. On Saturday: Our next Improvised Digital short Story with The Girls vs. The Guys. The teams are set and ready to go for the next Improvised Digital short Story. The Girls are: Bri Clark, Laurie Bowler, Barbara Briggs Ward, and Joan Meijer, the Guys: Thomas Kaufman, Vincent Zandri, CQ Scafidi, and Thomas White. They each will get the same three things to make the story; a person, place and a thing from which to make the story. We will read them live on the G-ZONE after they are done so we have an audio file of them. You can then listen to it on just about anything at your leisure. Okay to today’s novel, what is between the virtual covers( I read it on my Kindle):
“A gruesome murder leads Agent Hunter into wicked waters.
Some call Gator Creek “Sin Creek”—where the Cape Fear River snakes through eastern North Carolina, past the stunning port city of Wilmington. A sliver of water where wickedness and decadence take precedence over decency.
When SBI Agent Logan Hunter discovers a dead UNC-Wilmington coed used porn to pay tuition, she tracks down and questions other coeds. Far too many of them have been coerced into the raunchy business and have the scars to prove it. Hunter battles dens of iniquity, zeroing in on a brazen but somehow elusive ferry to find a deranged killer and bring down the porn operations, while trying to keep her marriage to Agent Chase Railey from falling apart.
Even though she succeeds in finding the killer, the investigation changes her life in ways she never could have imagined.”
I like character driven fiction, this is just that. The story line wasn’t my focus but a vehicle to enjoy the writing of Whitfield as she crafts a great novel. Her characters are well described, defined and fleshed out. She allows the reader into their minds and makes them come alive in ways that surprised me. For me that was the best part of the read. I felt as I was getting into this she made Logan Hunter very tangible, visceral and yet naked as the author laid it all out there to drive the novel forward and propel it to its conclusion. The rest was just icing on the cake.
