A murdered prostitute. An obvious suspect. Clear evidence. For once, Jericho Crewe has a straightforward crime to investigate, and Wade Granger isn’t involved.
It all seems so simple, but Jericho’s instincts won’t let him rest. As he investigates, he finds troubling suggestions that the murder is a part of something larger and more sinister. But working within the boundaries of the law may keep him from finding the truth. If Jericho doesn’t break the rules, an innocent man may rot in jail while a killer remains free to strike again.
Inevitably, it all comes back to Wade. Because who else knows as much about breaking rules? And who else knows Jericho the way Wade does—not wisely, but far, far too well?
Darkness is the third book in Kate Sherwood's Common Law series. I would probably recommend reading all of the books in order, so you can better get to know the characters. Each book is about the same group of characters, but dealing with a new problem, and also some continued storylines from the previous books.
When we left off in book #2 things were starting to heat up between Jericho and Wade. In this book Jericho really starts to give in the his attraction to Wade. After so much buildup for the two main characters to "get together", I felt a little underwhelmed because it was a fade to black kind of love scene. Maybe I'm a creeper, or just really enjoy my steamy scenes, but I was so disappointed! After waiting and waiting for something to happen for it to be a fade to black was a bummer. BUT that being said, I really did enjoy the rest of this book.
Wade was a little less mysterious in this one and started to show his true feelings more. He even helps Jericho out more than once. There is a lot left hanging at the end of this book, so I'm anxious to read book 4 to see how everything is wrapped up. I don't want to give too much away so I will leave it at that. Jericho did get a bit of closure on his father's murder in this one. The end of Darkness leaves you thinking that's for sure.
