Murder at the End of the World
Murder in an isolated city, a politician's wife. A young detective named Allison Newberry is sent to keep the case from growing cold. Bizarre clues are purposefully left behind, leading towards a secret big enough to kill for.
Nothing is ever simple in Illdara and no one leaves unchanged. More
When the wife of a politician is murdered in the isolated port-city of Illdara, junior detective Allison Newberry is sent in to keep the case from growing cold.
Immediately, the case is complicated by the nature of the city. Its people hold their privacy sacred and see any outsiders as intruders into their insular world. Even the chief inspector is more concerned with Allison's eventual departure than with solving the case.
Clues are scarce and little about the murder makes sense. A politician's wife left at the mouth of alley, none of her money or jewelry taken. Allison's initial investigation turns up nothing but dead ends. Then a second victim appears, a homeless man who is killed in the same manner. A single clue is left behind, which leads Allison to the darkest corners of the city.
Something is wrong with Illdara, every fiber of Allison's being screams this one thought. The suspicion and paranoia etched on every face, whispers of disappearance in the night, empty streets and empty buildings everywhere, and ravings of bizarre rituals carried out by a group that even the people of the city know nothing of. It's more than any detective should have to handle alone.
But Allison is the only who can solve the murder and bring the murderer to justice.
