The Darkness Hunter
When St. Paul Homicide Detective John Santana is assigned a cold case involving the murder of an environmental engineer, he begins to see connections to another case he once investigated—the murder of a young Native American woman.
But in seeking justice for the victims, it soon becomes clear that someone wants to keep their deaths buried, someone very cunning . . . and very deadly. In his quest to hunt down the killer before he strikes again, Santana must confront his own inner darkness and a conspiracy that threatens his life and the life of the woman he loves.
