THE DARK EYE
TITLE: THE DARK EYE
AUTHOR: INGRID BLACK
Details: no. 2 Saxon Mystery
One night, Saxon gets a call from a man named Felix Berg. He thinks someone wants to murder him and wants Saxon to meet him at a lighthouse just outside Dublin. Against her better judgment Saxon goes, only to discover the body of Felix, who has been shot.
The death of Felix appears to be connected to a string of apparently random murders that have been plaguing Dublin, but how is a complete mystery. And as the random murders continue, the mystery only deepens and Saxon is in danger of becoming obsessed.
This mystery was even darker than the first one in the series, especially because more of Saxon's own dark-side surfaces. The ending though, like in the first book, was a complete surprise. While reading a few possible solutions occurred to me, but the right one never crossed my mind. And I really like that in a mystery.
