An exciting mystery with a tense, taut, story line, THE GIFT OF DARKNESS will keep readers perched on the edge of their seats. It is difficult enough, I think, for a writer to construct a mystery's plotline, juggling clues while holding back revelations from arriving too soon. When that author also deals in multiple mysteries, including a twenty-five year old unsolved and extremely puzzling (and sad) cold case, the effort is quadrupled. V. M. Gianfranco solves this dilemma admirably, and far more than simply capably. Don't miss out on THE GIFT OF DARKNESS.
